BEST OF BANANA CABARET

ED BYRNE, ADAM BLOOM, YURIKO KOTANI, IMRAN YUSUF

PICTURED: Ed Byrne

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

ADAM BLOOM: Multi-award-winning Adam Bloom is one of Britain’s most original and inventive comedians, hugely in demand as both writer and performer the world over. With seven sell-out solo runs at The Edinburgh Festival, and a 29-date sell-out tour of the UK, Adam broke box-office records for any comic’s first ever appearance at The Melbourne International Comedy Festival. He is Banksy’s go-to comedian and writer on a range of collaborations, and has many TV credits too.

“A light-speed wit, focussed over years at the pinnacle of stand-up.” – CHORTLE

YURIKO KOTANI: Effortlessly appealing as she steps on stage, Yuriko Kotani is a UK-based Japanese comedian giving a wry take on the British, our mannerisms, language, and fondness for the adverb “-ish”. Named “One To Watch” by Time Out, Yuriko also won the BBC New Comedy Award and has numerous TV and radio credits. In 2019 she made videos giving tips for fans travelling to Japan for the Rugby World Cup, working with the Foreign & Commonwealth Office.

“The left-field rising star.”– TIME OUT

IMRAN YUSUF: Renowned as a skilful raconteur who can seamlessly weave socio-political satire with heartfelt introspection into his charming and endearing trademark style, Imran Yusuf is a languid, punchy, cheeky and utterly loveable comedian. He has been a pioneering voice in the world of modern British comedy and across the world, racking up one 7 million hits on YouTube!

“Sharp, passionate and uplifting.” – THE TELEGRAPH

TICKETS: £16 plus booking fee
