Latitude: Kevin Bridges review

22:44 20 July 2014

Latitude Festival 2014

Latitude Festival 2014

Archant

Scottish independence was on the cards as Kevin Bridges headlined the Comedy Arena.

Commenting on the middle class status of the festival, a common theme in the arena, he told everyone about his toughest gigs, the most difficult being the time he stood up in a prison, where a prisoner walked out after five minutes.

On the topic of independence, Bridges said that England should have a vote first to see what they want, as that will decide what the Scots do, as they would do the opposite.

He also spoke about the time he was heckled by someone who didn’t appreciate him saying hello to him, before a fan of Bridges stood up for him. A member of the audience, John Latitude, had an answer for the questions Bridges asked him, with Bridges saying he would get him next year.

From the applause he got at the end of his show, he’d certainly be welcomed back to Henham Park again.

Maverick Festival's Britt Gully

If Maverick Festival-goers have one complaint, it’s there’s too much great stuff going on. It’s a nice problem to have, says festival founder Paul Spencer, and means you’re sure to find something you like, be it American roots music or bluegrass to something rockier. He shares some suggestions of who to see with entertainment writer Wayne Savage

Mark Watson, playing Southend's Palace Theatre tomorrow

For someone who frets, stresses and worries half as much as Mark Watson, the prospect of boarding a 24-hour flight with the risk that they might not be allowed to enter the country at the other end would leave that person in a fraught state, writes Brian Donaldson.

It’s the dying seconds of my chat with Will Young. Asked to wrap things up by his PR, the ever gracious singer-songerwriter lets me ask one more question. It it true he was approached to become a judge on The Voice?
