Sonisphere Knebworth announce new acts for comedy line-up

Posted on 13 April 2011 by Mizzle

Organisers of this year’s Sonisphere Knebworth have announced new additions to the comedy line-up which promises to make it the festival to remember.

Prolific author and once one of the UK’s most wanted drug smugglers, Howard Marks,  has been confirmed to appear at the festival as part of what already promises to be one of the funniest comedy line-ups yet.

He will be delivering the festival’s Sunday Sermon on the Bohemia Stage and will appear alongside Sean Hughes, Brendon Burns and critically acclaimed comic Tiffany Stevenson.

Marks has had somewhat colourful past being described by the Daily Mail as ‘the most sophisticated drugs baron of all time’. Now fully reformed spends his time taking centre stage entertaining crowds with tales from his past.

Recently confirmed for the comedy end of the festival is Bill Bailey who will be heading up the Saturn Arena and Jackass’s Steve-o who will be making his UK stand-up debut on the Bohemia stage.

The festival is selling out fast and takes place on 8th-10th July 2011 at Knebworth House.
