About Top Banana

Catch the stars of the future right at the beginning every Wednesday night at our new act competition!

Each show a welcoming host presents a magnificent seven promising comedy hopefuls vying for the audience vote to become Top Banana.

We also have established acts dropping by to road-test some new material, and a brilliant Monkey Barrel Spotlight rising star to close the show.

Doors 7pm, show 8:30pm. Book online or call 0845 500 1056

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Top Banana are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
