EIGHT DAYS of pure laughs!
**It’s a TicketText update klaxon!**
The new & updated TicketText Scanner App has been released!
We’ve added some new features and improved the old system so you can have the best TicketText experience possible!
Here’s everything you need to know...
You will never need to print out a guestlist again. The app allows you to control your guestlist with ease using your smartphone or tablet. The app is connected to our live servers so once you have scanned a guest’s e-ticket the app will instantly update, allowing you to track up to the minute sales for all of your events. You can even keep events on sale once your show has started so you can continue selling tickets throughout the night!
Guest can’t find their barcode? Not a problem! Search your list by name and swipe right or tap on a guest’s name to check them in.
Avoid long queues and complaints at the venue. By setting up multiple box office staff on the app you can sign in guests simultaneously. Speedy and efficient.
Need to make a last minute line up change? Simply click through from the app to your promoter page to manage your event in real time.
For the past 20 years, The Backyard Comedy Club has been one of the most beloved London comedy venues. Located in the East End, comedian Lee Hurst founded the purpose-built comedy venue that has become a platform for the world's biggest comedy stars whilst still supporting the best in upcoming talent.
Alongside their wildly popular weekly shows, aptly named Thursday, Friday and Saturday Night at The Backyard Comedy Club, the venue is home to a large selection of comedy nights that cater for specialities ranging from health to musicals to evenings of unnecessary detail; if you want to laugh about it, The Backyard Comedy Club will have a night that lets you.
The best of the best perform at The Backyard Comedy Club, Russell Howard doesn't believe there's a better comedy club in the world, and in October Rhod Gilbert is performing a special one off charity night with The Comedy Hump to raise funds for the Velindre Cancer Centre. The centre supplies specialist treatment to over 1.5 million people across South East Wales and beyond. Based just outside of Cardiff, every year they treat over 5,000 new referrals and around 50,000 outpatients.
Surely there's no better way to spend an evening then in the presence of a hilarious Welshman raising money for charity? No, we don't think there is either.
October 3rd 7.30pm
Off The Cuff Comedy is a brand new (and we think a new favourite!) comedy night at an awesome new venue! Featuring a hand-picked selection of some of the funniest, coolest and weirdest up-and-coming AND well established comedians in the UK today – OTC Comedy hits Herne Hill on the last Wednesday of every month. In May we bring you these brilliant acts:
Jordan Brookes – Nominee: Best Show - Edinburgh Comedy Awards 2017.
Bec Hill – Dara O’Briain’s Go8Bit.
Ali Brice – “The inventive edge of the comedy scene” The Times ****
Harriet Dyer – BBC Radio4 Extra, Absolute Radio.
With more to be announced! All performing in one of the most unusual and friendly venues we’ve been to in years. Hailed as ‘The Cavern Club of South London’, come and check this space out before all the hipsters get whiff.

The much loved trio of geeks are back with just TWO nights of extreme nerdity. The nerds are recording their latest tour show over two nights in London for DVD and download. Be part of the audience by booking below. Two nights, muchos nerdity! Don’t miss this ‘resplendently geeky trio’ (The Times) as they put the “oooh” into zoology, the “fun” into fundamental theorem of calculus and the “recursion” into recursion in the ultimate show for nerds. And non-nerds.
A whole weekend of comedy?! No. Way! Yes. Way!! Yep, you read right, The Actually Rather Good Comedy Festival is back for a seventh year! And it’s not to be missed! It’s an entire weekend of unsolicited comedy fun taking place on the 7th and 8th of July. I mean, is there anything better than a whole weekend of laughter, we think not…
As with previous years they'll be bringing the spirit of the Fringe to East London, filling the labyrinthine Shoreditch Town Hall with the finest comedy talent the world has to offer. Over the weekend there will be forty eight full-length previews with twelve comperes hosting three intimate stages of the very best shows heading up to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The festival runs from midday until 10pm on both the Saturday and Sunday. You can book for one day or the whole weekend and come and go as you please. It’s quite literally your festival to do what you wish with and tailor as you fancy. It’s quite the done thing for people to miss a slot in order to get food, although it’s equally common for hardcore fans to stay from start to finish – it’s your choice!
The festival brings an attentively curated programme of sixty comedians — from big name TV favourites to up-and-coming newcomers. In 2016, ARGComFest became the first major comedy festival to have a gender balanced programme and it continues to champion diversity and representation within comedy. Who wouldn’t want to support that!
There’s tickets for the full weekend as well as Saturday or Sunday day tickets. On top of this, each ticket type comes in super early bird, early bird, or standard varieties — the tickets are cheaper the earlier you buy them so don’t miss out!
LIVE at the Backyard Comedy Club in Bethnal Green.
