In his first new show for seven years, Rob tells the story of how a series of personal disasters and jammy flukes led him to stumble upon a whole new theory of evolution, which he calls the Survival of the Misfits. It’s a story which includes altruistic vampire bats, Prince Kropotkin’s daring escape from a Tsarist dungeon and Richard Dawkins’ postman wrestling naked.

About The Festival


It’s back and better than ever! South London gets its ribs seriously tickled at Banana Cabaret’s 2014 Balham Comedy Festival from Friday 11 to Saturday 19 July

“The Balham Comedy Festival celebrates all that’s great about the live comedy scene - motivated by a love of all that’s great in stand-up. ” Harry Hill

A raft of home grown and international talent descends on The Bedford across 8 nights and 9 days of uproarious hilarity, giving comedy fans a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with artists they know, and those they don’t know they love yet but soon will! There will also be special daytime events for parents with children plus complimentary comedy workshops.
