Review: Split Festival 2010

With six local comedians sandwiched between a selection of top Northern musicians, you could be forgiven for suggesting the comedy on show at Split Festival this year was merely a token gesture by festival organisers. Thankfully, though, the performing comics didn’t feel like an irrelevance whilst on stage, with a few thousand people crowding around Stage Two on Saturday to see MC Tony Jameson, Sunderland’s own Nick Cranston, Tom Tolson and headliner Steffen Peddie.
