TELEVISION cameras will be recording performances by amateur comedians showing their talents at the Tringe Comedy Festival in July.

Organiser of the two-week event in Tring Ben Moorhouse has agreed for production company Official Film to film the Roving Comedy Night where trainee comedians from the town will perform in pubs on Sunday, July 1.

Ben said: “The company is producing a documentary about training to become a comedian so wanted to feature what we are doing in Tring.

“We don’t know what channel it will appear on yet.”

The Gazette’s own editor John Francis will be among the new talent doing gigs at The Anchor, The Black Horse, The Robin Hood and The Kings Arms.

Amanda Gardiner and Maria Cook from Tring, David Hands and Simon Lacey from Aylesbury, Chris Maskery, from Leighton Buzzard, Ian Young, from Hemel Hempstead, Neil Quigley from Princes Risborough and Peter Ford from Ruislip have all been trained for the show.

They will be joined in the line-up by comedy heavyweights Arthur Smith, Silky, Tony Law and Dominic Holland.
