Meanwhile, Latitude has given names to spaces in their comedy lineup, and there are some tasty names among them. Leading the way is a return for Dara O'Briain and Simon Amstell, while Katherine Ryan, Joel Dommett, Andy Parsons, Dom Joly, and Angelos and Barry will also be heading into the big field in the east of England. There are an absolute dumper truck of new names which you can find a big list of on the festival website.
