The return of Bristol’s Comedy Garden festival is edging ever closer and despite demand being high, there are still a host of hilarious acts which you could book to see.

Big names like Reginald D Hunter and Milton Jones will be taking to the stage over the course of a week from Tuesday until July 3.

Milton Jones’ one-liners will make a quirky return on June 30 and this wild-haired comedian’s quick-fire jokes are sure to be a hit.

Reginald D Hunter will take to the stage on June 29 and the American comedian is set to wow audiences in Britain having made a name for himself here.

He regularly appears on a host of panel shows such as Mock The Week and is not one to shy away from political issues.

The Comedy Garden is just a part of his wider European tour and a chance to catch him is not to be missed.

Throughout the week there will also be number of food stalls, bars and live music for you to enjoy.

From Adam Bug’s David Bowie tribute, to Britain’s favourite pub landlord Al Murray, this six-day comedy gala has something for everyone. But tickets are selling fast, so book now to avoid disappointment.

The Bristol Comedy Festival will begin on Tuesday in Queen Square in Bristol, with various different show times.

Tickets, priced between £12.50-24, are available from
