Kili up for laughs

UK-based promoter Kilimanjaro have announced that it is stepping up its activity in the comedy sector - hiring the former GM of the [PIAS] comedy business, Steve Tilley, who has been part of [PIAS] since 2008. Tilley will become a director and minority shareholder in Kili. The developments come just over a year after the live company's management, led by CEO Stuart Galbraith, bought founding shareholder AEG Live out of the business, taking the firm into independent ownership.  Commenting on its first year as an independent player, Kilimanjaro said in a statement: "Despite the current economic downturn, the company has had an excellent start to this next phase of its development, working with major established artists such as Robbie Williams, The Rolling Stones, Andrea Bocelli, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Donny & Marie Osmond, as well as seeing investment in developing artists begin to bear fruit with the likes of Bastille and The 1975".
