Sara Pascoe's Funny Farm: Sara Pascoe, Brett Goldstein, Jessica Fostekew, Lou Sanders, Mae Martin, Suzi Ruffell, Tania Edwards
Join Sara Pascoe and friends as they raise the roof off of the Backyard Comedy Club whilst raising much needed funds for Spitalfields City Farm.
Spitalfields City Farm was originally set up by volunteers in 1978 and they still rely on volunteers today to help maintain the farm and gardens look after the animals. In short, without volunteers there would be no farm.
The farm also relies heavily on charitable donations.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Sara Pascoe is a British writer, stand-up comedian and actress. She has appeared in a number of television programmes - Campus, Live At The Apollo, QI, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Mock The Week among others - as well as an all-female sketch show and her own Edinburgh show, and runs comedy club The House Of Mirth.
Sara's stand-up is influenced by her joint favourite heroes, Jodie Marsh and Winston Churchill.

'... defiantly idiosyncratic and highly accessible' (Evening Standard).
Sara Pascoe was named in Ents24's top 20 hardest-working comedians of 2016.
