  • Thursday23/03/2017
    8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Laugh Out London presents a night of supremely good comedy in aid of Performers Without Borders.

TIM KEY
You probably seen him as Alan Partridge’s put-upon sidekick, Sidekick Simon, in Mid-Morning Matters or Alpha Papa. Or maybe the final series of Peep Show, or contributing poems to Charlie Brooker’s Screenwipe, or the criminally underrated sketch show Cowards.

Edinburgh Comedy Award Winner 2009
“In any other sphere apart from comedy, we’d probably class this way of looking at the world as certifiable. Here it feels like genius” – Telegraph
‘This is one art house form-buster who can really give you a good time.’ – ★★★★ Times
“At times it’s like a wind-up; elsewhere it’s so lovely you could bathe in it” – ★★★★ Guardian
“He’s a genius plain and simple”- Time Out

NISH KUMAR
Edinburgh Comedy Award Nominee 2015 & 2016
As seen on Live at the Apollo and Have I Got News for You.

“one of the most engaging, and politically engaged, comics around” – ★★★★ The Telegraph
“Kumar keeps the laughs coming as he teases the zeitgeist” – ★★★★ The Times
“One wonders how many more years Nish Kumar can keep up the seemingly impossible trend of continually upping his game” – ★★★★★ Broadway Baby

LOLLY ADEFOPE
Fast rising satirical character comedian who seems destined to be huge. Lolly’s two Edinburgh shows have received tonnes of critical praise and sell out runs at the Soho Theatre. She was recently named one of the rising stars on 2017 by the Guardian.

“a highly talented comic actor, and you can expect to see her on our screens even more than she already is” ★★★★ – Chortle
“I never wanted this show to end” ★★★★★ – Three Weeks
“Adefope steps from one persona to the next with ease, adopting finely tuned mannerisms, pitch-perfect accents, and a lot of sheer silliness” – The Guardian

PHIL WANG
As seen on Have I got news for you, Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central and former Chortle Student Comedian of the Year. Phil is also one third of Edinburgh Fringe Best Newcomer nominees Daphne.

“Certain belly laughs” – ★★★★ Sunday Times
“A well-rounded young comic headed for greater things” – Steve Bennett, Chortle
“He’s an intelligent, attuned observer and his thoughts reward attentive listening” – Scotsman
“Exceedingly funny… One of the most gifted young comedians to grace the Fringe” -★★★★ Skinny

HOST: JOHN KEARNS
Multi-award winning surrealist who combines absurdism and bare humanity to beautiful effect. John made history as the first person to win the Edinburgh comedy Award best newcomer and best show awards in successive years. He has gone on to star in new BBC sitcom Top Coppers.

Edinburgh Comedy Awards Best Show 2014 – WINNER
Edinburgh Comedy Awards Best Newcomer 2013 – WINNER
“Now THIS is how you do absurd comedy” ★★★★★ -Chortle
“A true comedy original” ★★★★ -Time Out
“Kearns could be your new king of comedy” ★★★★ – Evening Standard
