Harry Hill, Al Murray - The Pub Landlord, Rich Hall, Adam Bloom, Jack Dee, Will Smith, Eddie Izzard, Catherine Tate, Rob Brydon, Omid Djalil & Frank Skinner - just to name a few - have all tickled audiences on these stages, in the vast Shakespearean Globe Theatre and Ballroom.
The Banana Cabaret continues to be the spring board for new and emerging comedians as well as a favourite with the established artists. Recent performers have included Perrier-winning Daniel Kitson, Marcus Brigstock & Stephen K Amos.
"This unusual venue is one of the finest in London.The club is held in high regard by the comics too,which means it almost invariably offers one of the strongest bills in town" - Chortle
