Award-winning comedian Bob Slayer will drive his BlundaBus straight into the midst of Livestock Festival 2015 this weekend.

The internationally renowned comic will bring along a host of friendly faces including Phil Kay, Bobby Mair and Patrick Monahan to entertain festivalgoers with an abundance of laughs and chaos.

Festival Founder Ben Leeke said: “We can’t wait for Bob and the gang to rock up in the BlundaBus. It’s such an exciting accompaniment to the incredible line up we have on the Main Stage. Throughout the weekend, revellers can grab a Livestock beer and climb on-board the bus for some grown up giggles. We will certainly be taking our seats for this comical addition to Livestock Festival.”

The pop up double decker venue will stop at Livestock en route to Edinburgh Fringe Festival where the comedians have been entertaining crowds since 2008. Roars of laughter are set to erupt from inside the bus as Bob and his comic-anarchist team perform their latest stand up.

Bob Slayer oversees the madness and is the founder behind Heroes of Fringe who promote pop up venues at Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Leicester Comedy Festival and other places across the UK. The ex-Rock and Roll tour manager has twice been nominated for the Malcolm Hardee Award for Comic Originality.

Known for his unique blend of energy, imagination and improvisation, Phil Kay surprises audiences with a completely unprepared stand up act. Every year, he performs to sell-out crowds and has previously worked as a warm-up act on The Jonathan Ross Show and a panellist on QI.

Canadian comic Bobby Mair boasts an international audience with tours across Europe, Canada and South Africa. Star of his own Comedy Central UK web series, The Bobby Mair Show, the stand-up comic has also appeared on UK television shows including Never Mind the Buzzcocks, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Sweat The Small Stuff and Virtually Famous.

Also on board the BlundaBus is Patrick Monahan. Patrick is best known for using personal life experiences and audience interaction to generate laughs. He has famously performed at Edinburgh Fringe Festival an amazing 10 times, including 5 solo shows. His animated story-telling style has been seen by thousands and he recently took part in the latest series of ITV’s diving series Splash.

To add to their ever-expanding repertoire, Bob Slayer and Patrick Monahan hold the unusual world record for ‘Longest Hug’ at an incredible time of 25 hours and 25 minutes, a record that was set at Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2013.

Livestock Festival is guaranteed to be a comical weekend full of live music, cult classics and family fun in the glorious countryside of rural Gloucestershire.
