The Venue

Get ready to laugh til you cry as we're joined by the best of London's Black comedy circuit! Lateef Lovejoy will present Michael Akadiri, Babatunde Aléshé, and Toussaint Douglass for a night that will give you stitches.

Toussaint Douglass is one of comedy’s most exciting and talked about new names and is already making serious waves across the industry. His innovative brand of stand up mixes the personal with the political, whilst adding a uniquely absurdist slant to brilliant comic effect. Toussaint made his TV debut on BBC Presents: Stand Up For Live Comedy (BBC Three) and has supported massive comedy names including Russell Howard and Paul Chowdhry.

Babatunde Aléshé is one of the biggest names on the Black British comedy circuit, regularly performing at iconic venues such as the O2 and Hackney Empire. Last year, he was featured in the groundbreaking documentary Black, British and Funny, celebrating artists and icons from the Black British circuit, and has also appeared as part of the new cast for Celebrity Gogglebox, becoming a fan favourite and representing the show for its BAFTA nomination.

Michael Akadiri is a fast rising, multi-award winning comedian. His natural charm and cheeky, observational style has already seen him make an impact on the UK comedy scene, most recently winning the Komedia New Comedian of the Year award.

Lateef Lovejoy is one of the most distinctive acts on the mainstream and international comedy circuits, headlining in countries from the US to Belgium, Nigeria to Sweden. Known for his unique comedic voice, Lateef revels in cultural anecdotes, social commentary, satire and his contemporary take on popular culture.

The bar will be open for drinks and snacks throughout the show.
