Balham Comedy Festival 2019

Now in its eighth year, Banana Cabaret's annual Balham Comedy Festival returns to full glory in 2019 with nine nights of top standup from 5th to 13th July. This year’s line-up includes solo sets from Angela Barnes, Marcus Brigstocke, Ed Byrne, Omid Djalili, Simon Evans, Rhys James, Milton Jones and Al Murray. And there will be an additional surprise guest announced on 23 June. If this is not enough to whet the appetite, there will be twenty minute sets from comics appearing on the Best of Banana Cabaret bill with confirmed names such as Stephen K Amos, Shappi Khorsandi, Paul Sinha, Sindhu Vee, Simon Brodkin, Eleanor Tiernan, Kae Kurd, Maxine Vuvuzela, Carl Donnelly, Jarred Christmas, Dave Longley, Carey Marx, Steve Williams and Markus Birdman. Festival audiences are in for a treat this year following the multi-million-pound refurbishment of The Bedford. It will take place in the beautiful Club Room on the ground floor and audiences will be able to enjoy the full force of great comedy in stunning new air-conditioned surroundings. Just in time for the festival, The Bedford will also be launching a brand-new menu brimming with the best British produce: from small plates to artisan pizzas, hearty mains to indulgent puds, it’s now the perfect spot for a pre-show meal. There are even 15 new luxury hotel rooms if you’d like to stay the night too.
