THE ROOF GARDENS COMEDY FESTIVAL 2017

Sunday 25th June

Bring on the sunshine 100ft above the London streets and join us for a truly unique blend of award-winning laugh out loud comedy coupled with beautiful cocktails, outdoor garden games and outstanding summer BBQ food...

After previously hosting huge comedy names such as Doc Brown, Katy Brand, Matt Forde, Abandoman, Gareth Richards, Joe Lycett, Steve Hall, and Kerry Godliman to our comedy stages, we're delighted to present an equally amazing line-up for 2017. The festival is an incredible opportunity to preview some exclusive Edinburgh Fringe material from a selection of the UK's very best comedians, performing across two stages in the magical setting of the The Roof Gardens.

We're so excited to present our line-up for 2017, packed with award-winners including...


MAINSTAGE

DANE BAPTISTE

Original, provocative and exceptionally prolific, Dane Baptiste brings a new show about our worldwide pursuit of wealth, power and pleasure.

‘Observational comedy at its finest’ The Independent.


MATT RICHARDSON

Matt is a multi-award winning stand-up comedian and one of the most exciting names currently rising through the ranks. Having started stand-up in 2009 at 18 years old, Matt became one of the youngest comedians on the circuit and soon made it through to the finals of two national stand-up competitions – the prestigious So You Think You’re Funny and the Chortle Student Comedy Award – as well as coming runner up in the Reading Comedy Festival New Act of the Year and winning the Newbury and Bath Comedy Festival new act competitions ‘ – all while still in his teens.

Since then Matt has firmly established himself as one of the UK’s most exciting young performers and presenters - hosting the drive-time show on Virgin Radio. His TV credits include co-hosting the Xtra Factor alongside Caroline Flack, co-hosting Celebrity Haunted Hotel Live! alongside Christine Lampard and helming the live spin off show alone, two one-off documentaries for ITV2 - Pampered Pooches, Hollywood and Meet The Family Guys, a series regular role on Viral Tap (ITV2), Nevermind The Buzzcocks, Celebrity Juice, Sweat The Small Stuff, Big Brothers Bit on the Side, Fake Reaction, It’s Not Me It's You, I'm a Celebrity Get Me out of here Now! and countless other shows.

TOM DEACON: Happy Landing

In a time when everything seems doomed politically, it’s time to wish for a happy landing, everything will work out. Trust me.

Tom Deacon has starred on Radio 1, Capital FM and Copa 90’s The Eurofan. After 18 months of Breakfast Show early mornings, he’s now back doing what he loves. Join him for his hilarious new show and be a part of his happy landing.

“A mighty fine comic” The Guardian

“With looks, confidence, charm and great material; expect other comics to lynch him” The Sunday Times


TUDOR GARDEN STAGE

LUCY PORTER: Choose your battles

In her new show, Lucy Porter asked what is really important to her.

In Marriage, in parenting and life in general you have to choose your battles, so when do you let things go and when do you make a stand?

“It’s impossible not to be won over.” The Reviews Hub*****

"Lucy Porter is exactly what every stand-up comedian at the Fringe should be like… An incredible breath of fresh air.” EdFest ****


BOBBY MAIR

Bobby Mair is a hilarious, dark and honest stand up comedian who has opened For Bill Burr and Doug Stanhope. He's trolled Katie Hopkins and read the internet through a megaphone to Julian Assange. He's appeared on 8 Out of 10 Cats, and is a regular on CH4's World of Weird and E4's Virtually Famous. His show is not one to be missed.


ELLIE TAYLOR: This Guy 

Following a sell out 2016 fringe and nationwide tour, the star of BBC's Live at the Apollo, Mock the Week & The John Bishop Show, Channel 4's 8 Out Of 10 Cats and Radio 4's The Now Show presents an unmissable new hour of stand-up.
