London Comedy Allstars: Dane Baptiste, Fin Taylor, Sarah Keyworth, Lou Sanders, Ian Smith
Join every Saturday night for a huge line up of the best comedy talent on offer. London Comedy Allstars is your one-stop shop for the biggest laughs, the best location and your new favourite night out.
Southbank will be non-stop LOLs.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
After growing up in '80s South-East London and surviving a post-Bush, post-racial, post-Thatcher, post-Twilight Society, Dane realised that it was a moral obligation to chronicle and in some places parody the human experience and contemporary western culture.
Having written and starred in his own sitcom for the BBC (Sunny D) and performed a triumphant run at the Edinburgh Festival, Dane Baptiste is fast becoming regarded as definitely one to watch as his career takes off.
As seen on Live At The Apollo, 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown (Channel 4), Mock the Week (BBC Two), Chris Ramsey's Stand Up Central (Comedy Central), Tonight at the London Palladium (ITV1), Live from the BBC (BBC Two), Seann Walsh’s Late Night Comedy Spectacular (BBC3) and Live at The Comedy Store (Comedy Central).

'Intelligent and genuinely hilarious' (Adam Bloom)
'Observational comedy at its finest' (The Independent)
'Baptiste is a comical genius' (http://www.EdFestMag.com)

Dane Baptiste tour dates
London-based stand-up comedian who has warmed up for BBC's Never Mind The Buzzcocks and Pointless, supported Glenn Wool on tour and gigged extensively as an opening act and MC.
His innovative and distinctive material never fails to amuse his audiences.
'Highly rated up-and-comer' (The Guardian)
'Original, distinctive and fresh' (Chortle).
Fin Taylor tour dates
Originally from Nottingham, Sarah Keyworth is becoming a regular on the London circuit and has supported Stewart Francis on tour. Her material is a mix of honest anecdotal storytelling about her Midlands upbringing, made surreal with the occasional addition of a silly observation. She delivers sharp lines with a cheeky smile and moments of sudden deadpan that leave the audience wanting more.
