The annual Balham Comedy Festival will be returning this month, hosting its sixth festival at The Bedford, Balham since its launch in 2012.

Al Murray, known as The Pub Landlord and Rich Hall are scheduled to perform along with a selection of Best of Banana’s cabaret including Joe Pasquale, Angela Barnes, Imran Yusuf, Roger Monkhouse, Paul Tonkinson, Tania Edward and Carl Donnelly.

It will be hosted by John Moloney, comedian and co- founder of the festival.

This year’s festival will be ‘Pint Sized’, a scaled down version as a result of the forthcoming multi-million pound refurbishment of The Bedford this summer.

The festival will run over the long weekend later this month, from Friday, April 27 until Sunday, April 29.

Tickets are currently on sale and can be purchased via Balham Comedy Festival's or Banana Cabaret's website.
