BALHAM COMEDY FESTIVAL
BEST OF BANANA CABARET – Friday, 9th July
BEST OF BANANA CABARET
PICTURED: Jen Brister
JEN BRISTER: From world-weariness, seething frustration and cartoon-like characterisation, Jen Brister is cool, intelligent, feeling and very very funny. A critically-acclaimed stand up comedian and writer, she is hugely in demand on the UK and international comedy circuits.
“Her energy is explosive. Her use of space and delivery mesmerising.” – THE SUNDAY TIMES
STEVE HUGHES: Catch the highly-anticipated return of Australian (and adopted Brit) comedy legend and powerhouse Steve Hughes. Back for his first full length UK tour in six years, Steve is known the world over for his hard-hitting, take-no-prisoners stand up. Free-thinking, intelligent, opinionated; this is Steve doing what he’s always done best; making the uncomfortable acceptable and the horrifying hilarious.
“His insights are spot on, his opinions intelligent, his jokes top class.” – THE GUARDIAN
ANDY ASKINS: Andy Askins is a distinctive, original talent, and highly sought-after headliner. And comics love him! A talented musician with an expertly crafted routine, Andy has audiences in the palm of his hands. He is also one of a very select group to be awarded the Afghanistan campaign medal for his contributions which included several tours to soldiers operating on the frontline.
“One of my all-time favourites.” – JASON MANFORD
SPECIAL GUEST: Oo! How exciting!
TICKETS: £16 plus booking fee
