BBC Studios Comedy @ The Backyard

February 6, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


BBC Studios’ brand new live comedy night! A chance to see some of the UK comedy scene’s top (and up-and-coming) talent showcase their stuff before it gets recorded. From stand-up, to sketch to new format ideas, every night is a chance for a peak behind the scenes at what goes into making brilliant radio and TV comedy.

Topical material from Mock The Week regular and host of BBC R4 Extra’s Newsjack, Angela Barnes – ‘She’s just a gloriously down-to-earth, straight talking and extremely funny comic’ – The Guardian

Edinburgh comedy award nominee 2017 Sophie Willan. Break out comedy star Sophie Willan is coming to Radio 4 with an exciting new series looking at what it is to be ‘normal’. Brutally honest and gloriously unpredictable, Sophie takes inspiration from her unusual life experiences. Come along to see new material.

And a half hour stand-up special from Live at the Apollo and Mock the Week star – Tom Allen tests new material for his Radio 4 pilot, as he does his best to present an exterior image of serenity and poise while everything collapses around him.
