Want to see the cream of London's comedy? Tickets now available for the E4 Udderbelly Festival 2011

Posted: 22nd March 2011

The annual comedy and performance show will be cowing around on the South Bank for the third time this year, when dozens of unique performers will take to the stage for the Udderbelly Festival, sponsored by E4. The familiar upturned purple cow will be revealing plenty of talent (pay attention!) from 21st April and 17th July, hoping to emulate last year's successes of reasonably priced tickets for the cream (sorry) of comic talent, all performed in a great location - next to the London Eye in an indigo bovine's stomach.

The line-up is seemingly endless - just how can you choose your favourite? Well, if you want top-drawer comedians of today you've got Jason Byrne (24th and 25th June), Brendon Burns (14th May), Isy Suttie (12th July) and Richard Herring (6th July). Or how about established legends such as Arthur Smith (9th July), Barry Cryer (17th July), Robin Ince (11th July), Roy Walker (6th May) and Jenny Eclair (27th June)?

There are also plenty of sketch and one-man shows to pick from as well including several Best Of The Comedy Store every Saturday from 30th April, the Fitzrovia Radio Hour show on 18th May and 19th June, the eccentricity of Flanders and Swann's words and music on 4th June and the One-Man Star Wars Trilogy on 31st May and 1st June. Then there's the madcap The Boy With Tape On His Face on 17th June.

Tickets are available now at various prices from £12.50 - £15.50 - but hurry as many performances will sell out fast!
