The large upside-down purple cow returns to the South Bank for an eighth year in 2016. It is always a sign that the warmer weather is just around the corner when Udderbelly presents an eclectic programme of comedy, circus and children’s shows next to the River Thames. The site has a number of paid attractions but if you would like a drink at one of London’s largest outdoor bars or a bite to eat, you can enter Udderbelly and enjoy the atmosphere for free.
Highlights of this year’s festival are incredible circus performers, Circa who premiere their brand new show Close Up. Learn weird and wonderful facts from the QI Elves in a live version of their podcast No Such Thing As a Fish and let Nina Conti get In Your Face. The kids will be entertained by the Comedy Club 4 Kids and The Amazing Bubble Man.
Some of the biggest names in comedy will be appearing at the festival including Andy Zaltzman: Political Animal, Milton Jones: Gold Refining in Progress, Sean Hughes: Mumbo Jumbo, Stephen K Amos: The Laughter Master and Reginald Hunter.
Some of the top children’s shows include Bec & Tom’s Awesome Laundry, Brainiac Live! Science Abuse, Comedy Club 4 Kids. Jay Foreman’s Disgusting Songs for Revolting Children (and other funny stories) and The Amazing Bubble Man.
