Home / Fringe & Festivals / Latitude Festival / LATITUDE LOWDOWN: Pappy’s


How would you describe your set in one sentence?

A late-night, drunken, balls-to-the-wall, rock n roll, sketch comedy sextravaganza.

Is this your first visit to the Latitude Festival, if so what interesting tales have you been told about what to expect?

We’ve been performing at Latitude since 2007. But every year is different, different people, different bands, different weather. The only things that don’t change are our jokes.

How do festival audiences compare to other comedy audiences?

Festival audiences are more likely to be drunk on cider. Or not have washed for three days. Or wearing a regrettable hat.

How important is it for festivals such as Latitude to have comedy programming alongside the music acts?

Latitude is so much more than a music event. You could be there for the full four days, not see any band and still have a brilliant time. The variety of entertainment is what makes Latitude the highlight of our summer.

How have you been preparing for festival life?

We’ve been building up our cider tolerance, haven’t washed since last year’s festival and bought several regrettable hats.

What do you think sets your show apart from all the other Latitude offerings?

It’s the only thing on this late on a Friday. It’s either us or bed.

What’s the one act that you don’t want to miss at this year’s Latitude (apart from your own!)?

Manic Street Preachers.

Wellies or fancy footwear for the festival?

Both. We’re bringing out our own line of high-heeled wellies for the festival season.

Are you camping at Latitude and if so what’s your one top camping tip?

Yes. Get used to never being the temperature you want. And conquer your fear of earwigs.

Latitude is famous for its multi-coloured sheep – if your show was an animal what type of animal would it be?

A fox. It’s up way too late at night and it eats out of the bins.


Pappy’s will be performing on Friday 17th Julyin the Comedy Arena at Latitude
