A new comedy club will open its doors in Putney this Saturday.

Monkey Business Comedy Club, based at Putney Pantry Café Bar on Putney High Street, will show live comedy every Saturday night, bringing award winning stars and TV personalities to the area.

Martin Besserman, Monkey Business Comedy Club promoter, said: “I’m always excited by a new project.

“I can’t wait to bring exciting, flamboyant, and award-winning to comedy to Putney.

“Putney doesn’t have a comedy club, so it should be warmly received.”

Monkey Business has run a sister night in Camden for over a decade.

Simon Brodkin, better known as his comic character Lee Nelson, will perform on October 13.

When away from the stand-up circuit, Brodkin stages public pranks.

In recent years he has thrown cash at Sepp Blatter, rolled Swastika marked golf balls at President Trump and handed Theresa May a P45 on stage at the Conservative Party conference.

Winner of Britain’s got talent, Lost Voice Guy, will perform on December 15.

Unable to speak, he is the first stand-up comic to use a communication aid to perform.

Anna Mann, star of BBC’s Murder in Successville and Being Human, will headline the first show with support from Alan Francis, Jenny Collier and Sonia Aste.

Doors will open at 7pm, with the show starting at 8pm.

Tickets can be bought online for £10, or for £15 on the door.

Students are entitled to a free drink on opening night.
