FESTIVAL organisers are looking for local comedians to join an impressive line-up for Barnsley’s first ever comedy festival.

‘April Fools’ will see top stand-up comedians perform in the town throughout the month of April. They include names such as Rob Beckett, Ed Byrne, Dave Spikey and Chris Ramsey with more names being added all the time.

Home grown comedians are also being encouraged to take part and will have the opportunity to entertain the crowds at various town centre venues.

Those wanting to take part can email a clip to eventplanning@barnsley.gov.uk or call 01226 773633.
