Banana Cabaret at The Bedford, Balham, is one of London’s longest running, premiere stand up comedy clubs. We have the longest residency in the UK, 38 years at The Bedford and counting! We are a favourite with comedians and audiences alike with always one of the best lineups in town. All your favourite household-name comics have performed at Banana Cabaret and at our critically acclaimed Balham Comedy Festival in The Bedford's iconic round Club Room. Many still do!
