Welcome to Cheerful Earful, a festival of funny podcasts, big & small. Over 6 days, audiences can see their favourite podcasts live with all-star guests from the world of British comedy and beyond. The festival is proudly supported by our lead media partner, Adelicious.      



Day three: The Adelicious Headline Stage

The Bedford Pub, Balham 

Desert Island Dicks 19:00 

SPECIAL GUEST: Jenny Eclair!

The show that sees you marooned on a desert island with the worst people and the worst things imaginable.

A Gay And A Non Gay 20:30

SPECIAL GUESTS: Fat Tony & Jammi Dodger! 

In a time when we’re all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power, A Gay and A NonGay challenges our differences head on and resolves that no matter who you are, or what you’re into Bruce Springsteen or Britney, love is love and Gays and NonGays can be friends.

'Highly Recommended' Guardian 

'One of the most fundamentally kind and funny podcasts in Britain' RadioTimes '

We are very grateful to our media partners for their support, which allows us to keep the festival free for those performing.

The Bedford

The Bedford in Balham was built in 1931 and following a multi-million-pound refurbishment reopened in 2018. One of the best venues for live music, comedy and wrestling in the city.  A fresh seasonal menu will fuel you for an evening of dancing. Some of the hottest new music acts fill the club room…
