Saturday At The Boat Show Comedy Club & Night Club: Daliso Chaponda, Jimmy McGhie, Eshaan Akbar, Matt Green
London's finest floating comedy club is back on board the Tattershall Castle. It's a unique opportunity to enjoy a fantastic night out on a beautiful paddle steamer, which is permanently moored in the West End opposite The London Eye.
The shows have four top comics with the occasional special guest and there are regular intervals so you can keep your drinks topped up.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Daliso is a versatile African comedian equally comfortable talking politics, romance, filth or religion. As such, he has performed in such diverse venues as churches, casinos, strip clubs and sports bars and was a finalist on Britain's Got Talent 2017. He has lived in countries where the press is not allowed to criticize the government, and in others with no libel laws where they can say anything. He has been both a journalist and a jaded newsreader.
Daliso has appeared at many festivals that have included Melbourne, Edinburgh, Singapore and Cape Town Festivals. He is also a prolific fiction writer and has had his science fiction, murder mysteries and fantasy fiction published in numerous magazines and anthologies. He also co-wrote a play that aired on BBC Radio 4.

'A joy to listen to. Provocative, poignant and ultimately hilarious' (The Guardian)
'I laughed so much I thought I'd pass out!' (The List)
'It takes a special kind of act to work on both sides of the Atlantic (as well as across Africa), but it seems an easy transition as he compels the crowd with his racial and socially insightful comedy' (News and Star, Carlisle)
'Absolutely [took] the roof off the place. Brilliant, brilliant act' (The Frog and Bucket).
