Watch a comedy show in a cow's udder

Those who have been to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in recent years will be familiar with E4's Udderbelly, a huge tent in the shape of an upside down purple cow, named after the Underbelly, a longstanding fringe venue on Edinburgh's Cowgate (do you see what they did there?).

Well last night, the Udderbelly came to London for the first time, opening a eight week residence in the car park next to Jubilee Gardens on the South Bank (between the Southbank Centre and the London Eye).

Between now and July 19th, you can see a range of comedy and other acts, including Josie Long, Rhod Gilbert, Arthur Smith, If.Comedy winner David O'Doherty, Arthur Smith, Reginald D. Hunter, Clive James, the Comedy Store Players, Mitch Benn and many more.

Prices are mostly around £10-£15 (though a few are higher) and there is a box office on the South Bank. For more information, visit http://www.southbankcentre.co.uk/festivals-series/e4-udderbelly.

  1. If you enjoy the show and are planning a trip to Edinburgh for the festival this summer it might be worth trying out self catering accommodation rather than a hotel.

    Edinburgh Holiday Lets www.edinburghholidaylets.co.uk offers high quality self catering apartments for the same price as a hotel, and we're close to all of the festival attractions.

  2. I'll let this comment stay as I'm only too aware how difficult it can be to get accomodation for the fringe.

    I usually delete advert-comments on sight, however.
