44 new shows on sale today!

26th Feb 2019

As if this summer wasn’t looking exciting enough, we’ve just announced yet more shows to the 2019 programme including some of the best names in comedy, more chances to catch your favourite podcast in a live recording, plus more brilliant cabaret and variety. It’s going to be a summer to remember.

Introducing…

Transit


Joining our previously announced headliners, A Simple Space, Little Death Club and Yummy are contemporary circus company Flip Fabrique who bring Transit to the Belly Theatre. 

Hailing from Quebec, in this show the troupe celebrate the up and downs of touring theatre and the fun of being together and sharing meaningful experiences. Treating every show like it’s their last performance together, this is a treat to see some fantastic circus, showing that anything is possible. Check out the trailer to see the troupe in action here. (will add in a link as the video sells the show a lot more than their copy does!)

COMEDY

We’ve got some of the biggest names in comedy gracing our two spaces including Gina Yashere, as well as Britain’s Got Talent winner Lost Voice Guy. 

Alison Spittle, Tiff Stevenson, Maisie Adam and Sindhu Vee bring their solo shows, as well as Phil Wang and Jason Byrne and the ‘UK’s favourite Frenchman’, Marcel Lucont who bring an hour of comedy with a live band with wit sharper than a pint of English Wine. 

Improv group The Noise Next Door present their Comedy Lock In with special guests in some off-the-cuff madness, and Notflix’s all female troupe use audience suggestions of recently watched films to create a unique improvised musical. 

 

CABARET & VARIETY

As always, the Underbelly Festival Southbank is full of the unexpected, and a cabaret night is the perfect place to jump into the unknown! 

Le Gateau Chocolat brings a heartwarming and moving celebration of musical heroes and relationships that shaped his life and inspired his dreams in Icons. The queer cabaret Mariah & Friendz brings some of the best live acts together, whilst Timberlina & Dr Aspalls bring hilarious original songs.

Or, experience the launch of Positive Runway Pride Fashion Week with an exquisite evening of fashion, paired with live performances and inspiring speakers. 

 

PODCAST
 

Adding to our Podcast Live season is An Irishman Abroad celebrating the 300th episode with Jarleth Regan who is joined by special guests from the series. 

The award-winning Griefcast also records live as well as Angelos Epithemious & Barry From Watford in the Angelos & Barry Show. Brett Goldstein also sifts through films that shape our lives, ultimately choosing Films To Be Buried With, whilst The Guilty Feminist comes in April. 

 

FAMILY

Cbeebies sensation Twirlywoos welcomes young theatre-goers in a brand-new theatrical adventure with inventive puppetry to bring Toodloo, Giant BigHoo, Chickedy, Chick and Peekaboo to life for four weeks in August.

Plus, from the producers of the hit Comedy Club 4 Kids, How Does This Politics Thing Work Then? brings a hilarious and easy to follow roundup of the happenings in parliament, whilst Rubbish Shakespeare bring a silly version of Romeo & Juliet, truly showing that Shakespeare is for all!

 

With over 120 shows on sale, the South bank will be your ultimate destination for all things entertainment, food and drinks from April until September.
