The Balham Comedy Festival

Banana Cabaret’s Balham Comedy Festival is back.


From 5th-13th July expect to see the best names in comedy perform in our stunning Club Room.


From Ed Byrne to Al Murray, Angela Barnes to Shappi Khorsandi, Omid Djalili to Marcus Brigstoke and Stephen K Amos, whatever your kind of comedy we guarantee to crack a smile. There’s even a top-secret special mystery guest who will be announced on 23rdJune.


Now in its eighth year, Balham Comedy Festival goers can expect ‘sneak peaks’ of Edinburgh shows and upcoming tours plus a merry-go-round of 20-minute comedy gold sets during the Best of Banana Cabaret evenings. Tickets cost from just £12 and can be purchased here.


Show start times vary but comedy fans are encouraged to dine before the gig. With table service plus a brand new menu brimming with the best British produce, from small plates to artisan pizzas, hearty mains to indulgent puds, the Club Room is 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.


Please note show times and prices vary. Please check individual gigs for details. For full listings please check out our What’s On Calendar here.


The Balham Comedy Festival is produced by Banana Cabaret’s Dave Vickers and John Moloney, comedy legend and star of BBC Radio Four’s The John Moloney Show.

“One of the few truly great comedy clubs in the UK.”
