Thursday 21 March
Our March show is headlined by the impeccable, Ben Van Der Velde! “The perfect comedy club host – he is a master of audience interaction. The audience weren’t just warmed up, but pretty hysterical even before the first act of the night hit the stage.” Huffington Post.
Ben is a regular host and act for respected British comedy clubs such as The Comedy Store, Komedia, The Backyard, The Glee, Covent Garden Comedy Club, The Stand, Comedy Loft, Top Secret Comedy, Outside the Box, the Frog & Bucket and Comedy Club 4 Kids, as well as hosting stages for Bestival, Festival No.6, End of the Road and Sunday Papers Live.
“Wonderfully improvised riffs showcasing his impressive spontaneity and sharp tongue.” Edinburgh Festivals Magazine
A bumper month of support this month comes from Aaron Simmonds! Star of “The Russell Howard Hour”, disabled comedian Aaron Simmonds has been failing to stand up for 30 years; luckily he is far better at comedy than standing up. He has a unique perspective on life, usually of people’s belly buttons, which gives him stories to tell, and a sore neck. “A comedian going places” **

Plus, super talented up and comer Shalaka Kurup, one of the best new comics our booker has ever seen. Shalaka Kurup is an award-winning stand-up comedian and seasoned Roast Battle-r. She has won spots at The Comedy Store, Up the Creek and Backyard Comedy, but let’s be real, she’s saving the best for Catford. Plus impeccable jokewriter Saban Kazim! Saban Kazim is half English, half Turkish Cypriot, and 100% Lewisham. The South Londoner has been gigging since 2010 performing at venues including The Comedy Store, The Comedy Cafe, Top Secret Comedy, Downstairs At The Kings Head and The Backyard Comedy Club to name a few, but today, he is making his homecoming debut at the Broadway in Catford .
