Expect a summer festival with a difference as some of the nation's favourite comics turn curators and host a virtual festival featuring their favourite performers from the worlds of comedy, literature and spoken word. They'll be in control of everything (even the weather) as we're taken along for the ride to not only hear some great performances but also to get an insight into the cultural radars of our celebrity hosts.

The hosts for these festivals will be Miles Jupp, Jo Brand, Daliso Chaponda, Jayde Adams, Sara Pascoe and Darren Harriott.
