Limavady's Stendhal Festival has announced a storming line-up of local talent for this year's festival.

An all Northern Irish bill is headlined by one of Northern Ireland’s most popular young comedians, Shane Todd, who will be joined by the incredible talents of Dave Elliot, Mary Flannigan, Limavady home-town sensation Robbie McShane and The State of Goose.

Having sold out the Ulster Hall three times in the past two years and with a huge presence on social media, Shane Todd’s star has been on the rise since his first appearance at Stendhal three years ago.

Since then he has gone on to host The Shane Todd Show and Live at the Sunflower on BBC Radio Ulster, co-host of the Boy Town podcast and among other TV appearances has starred in BBC 2 NI’s Saturday night primetime show Late License.

Stendhal Festival Director Ross Parkhill said he was excited at the prospect of an all NI comedy bill at Stendhal this year.

“We are really pleased with our comedy line-up this year,” he said. “Shane Todd is a guy who has went out and really taken the bull by the horns and carved out a really solid place in the NI comedy landscape since he first performed at Stendhal a couple of years ago.

“Sell out shows in the Ulster Hall are a big, big deal for any performer from here so Shane has proven he has all the tools to be a big, big deal in the world of comedy."
