BEST OF BANANA CABARET – Friday, 16th July



PICTURED: Naomi Cooper

ED BYRNE: His live work has built up legions of fans both in the UK and abroad, and Ed is widely considered the observational standup to see. He became a household name from TV, radio and stage appearances now into a third decade including, The Pilgrimage, Top Gear, QI, Dara & Ed’s Road to Mandalay, Dara & Ed’s Big Adventure, Mock the Week, Graham Norton Show, Have I Got News For You, and Live at the Apollo. 

“At the height of his powers” – THE OBSERVER

BEN NORRIS: Renowned for his incredibly relaxed stage persona, Ben consistently delivers sharply crafted material, and his innate, exquisite improvisational skills are the envy of his peers. Ben has written and performed solo shows at the Edinburgh Festival, and acted in the play “The Last Minutes”, broadcast on Radio 4, developed with the Comedians Theatre Company. TV credits include Mock the Week, The Comedy Store, Never Mind the Buzzcocks and They Think It’s All Over. 

“Unbelievably brilliant” – JASON MANFORD

NAOMI COOPER: Naomi Cooper has really hit her comic stride, over the last year becoming a viral sensation with her Yummy Mummy Philippa videos. She is a seasoned standup comedian, accomplished improviser, and classically-trained actor. Her star is most definitely in the ascendant. She supported Jeff Garlin, of Curb Your Enthusiasm and The Goldbergs, for the duration of his recent extended sold out Soho Theatre run, and again at the Laugh Factory and the Hollywood Improv in LA.

“A comedy badass. Naomi Cooper is funny.” – JEFF GARLIN

TOM LUCY: With an easy stage presence and likeable, chatty style, Tom Lucy has established himself as one of the most exciting new comedians around, rising through the comedy club circuit to become one of the youngest professional standup comedians in the world. He tours internationally, picks up rave reviews and boasts a sell out show at the Leicester Square Theatre. Tom also supported Jack Whitehall on his enormous UK arena tour. As seen on Dating No Filter, Stand Up For Live Comedy, Roast Battle, Stand Up Central and many more.

“Believe the hype, this guy is hilarious.” – JACK WHITEHALL
