Following their sell-out shows in 2022 and 2023, ARG and Shoreditch Town Hall are thrilled to present another spectacular, star-studded showcase of comedians at the top of their game!

This July’s blockbuster bill features Suzi Ruffell, Jamali Maddix, Sara Pascoe, Larry Dean and Sikisa, with your host by Ania Magliano — plus even more to be announced!

Suzi Ruffell
Channel 4 National Comedy Award nominee for Best Stand Up Show, and host of BBC Radio 2’s Explicable Me and hit podcast OUT with Suzi Ruffell.

“Instinctively, exquisitely funny from the moment she sashays onto the stage… a crowd-pleasing show packed with punchlines.” - Evening Standard

Jamali Maddix
As seen on Taskmaster, Frankie Boyle’s New World Order, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, and his critically acclaimed series Hate Thy Neighbor for Vice.

★★★★ “It’s a failing of the comedy industry that there aren’t more voices like Jamali Maddix on the circuit” - Chortle

Sara Pascoe
Multi-award-winning comedian, writer and actor. As seen in BBC stand up special LadsLadsLads, her own sitcom Out of Her Mind, and hosting The Great British Sewing Bee.

Sara wrote and performed the BBC2 short Sara Pascoe vs Monogamy, which was inspired by her first book, Animal. Her second book, Sex Power Money, was a Sunday Times bestseller, and the accompanying podcast has garnered millions of listens and multiple award nominations.

Larry Dean
Three-time Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee. As seen and heard on Live at the Apollo, Mock the Week, Michael McIntyre’s Big Show, World’s Most Dangerous Roads and Shared Baggage.

★★★★★ The Telegraph

As seen and heard on Live at the Apollo, Jonathan Ross’ Comedy Club and Off-Menu with Ed Gamble and James Acaster. Tour support for Kiri Pritchard-McLean and Catherine Cohen.

★★★★★ “will leave you in stitches and in awe of the incredible woman on stage” - Broadway World

Ania Magliano (MC)
Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Show 2023 nominee. She has opened for Ed Gamble, Marc Maron and Catherine Cohen, and she also writes with comedian, journalist and viral sensation Amelia Dimoldenberg on Chicken Shop Date and Amelia’s Cooking Show. Her choices on Off Menu were widely regarded as one of the worst menus of all time.

★★★★ “Consistently amusing and deceptively daring” - The Times
