FESTIVAL No.6 has revealed the names on this year’s comedy line-up.

Reginald D Hunter makes his debut at Festival No.6 in Portmeirion from September 6 to 9.

His searingly honest material has won him a popular fanbase that spans the generations. In the past 12 months he has completed a critically acclaimed tour of Ireland as well as performing across Europe.

His appearances on television have included 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown and the BBC2 series Reginald D Hunter’s Songs Of The South which documented Reginald’s epic road trip from North Carolina to New Orleans through 150 years of American popular song.Headlining on the Sunday evening is cult poet, comic and actor, Tim Key. Billed as “one of the funniest shows of the year” by Time Out, Kay was crowned winner of the Edinburgh Comedy Award in 2009 and was also nominated for the Malcolm Hardee Award for Comic Originality.

Key has made many TV appearances, from playing Sidekick Simon alongside Steve Coogan on Mid Morning Matters with Alan Partridge, to gracing such shows as Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Skins, Taskmaster, Inside No.9 and Peep Show.

Stand up circuit regular and one-to-watch Lauren Pattison is also gracing the stage at No.6 for the first time.

She has been on the comedy circuit for five years, which at the age of just 23 makes her one of the brightest young talents on the comedy scene.

Last year Lauren triumphed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with a sold-out run of her critically acclaimed debut show Lady Muck. This 5 star show was so popular three extra performances were added and subsequently sold out. Not only was ‘Lady Muck’ the best reviewed show at The Pleasance this year, Lauren also won a Herald Angel Award and was nominated for Best Newcomer 2017 at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards.

Internationally award-winning comedian, writer, podcaster and host Stuart Goldsmith brings his energetic storytelling to this year’s festival. With a reputation for smart, accessible stand-up, Stuart’s enthusiasm and natural charm conceal a quick wit and fearlessness honed by his early career as a street performer. Surprisingly candid about his exploits, sexploits and textploits, Stuart likes to get his teeth into love, romance and the downside of getting what you want.

Also performing will be prop comic Spencer Jones. Renowned for his masterful physical comedy, he has been nominated for both the Edinburgh Comedy Award and a BAFTA.

His latest live show The Audition was nominated for the 2017 Edinburgh Comedy

Award and received glowing reviews. Spencer recently wrote and starred in a pilot, The Jonah Man, for Cave Bear and Sky One. In 2017, he reprised his role in Upstart Crow for BBC Two. He also recently starred in BBC Studios’ pilot, Mr Winner, for BBC One.

Award-winning comedian and cabaret performer Jayde Adams returns to Festival No. 6 for a second year. Originally from Bristol Jayde is an award-winning comedian as well as a cabaret performer, MC, all dancing, all opera singing, ex fish mongering West Country woman. She has performed all over the UK, including 10 years of Freestyle Disco Dancing competitions up and down the country, and has travelled internationally with her ‘barnstorming’ performances. In 2014 she was named winner of the Funny Women Awards and she received the London Cabaret Audience Award in 2013.

Also scheduled to appear on the bill are John Kearns, Fern Brady, Rich Wilson, Lou Sanders, Jarred Christmas, Kiri Pritchard-Mclean, Jack Gleadow, Alistair Barrie, Joey Page and George Rigden and Chris Washington.
