Farm Africa’s Laughing Season brings together a bumper crop of the UK’s most cutting-edge comedians, to provide a night of hilarity in support of African farmers.

We're delighted to announce the return of our comedy night: Farm Africa's Laughing Season!

For one night only, Farm Africa will be taking over east London's finest venue, EartH, to present an evening of mirth and entertainment, that will raise vital funds for our work in support of farmers in eastern Africa.

The line-up

Providing the giggles, cackles, and full-on belly laughs is an incredible line-up that is crammed to the rafters with the absolute cream of the UK stand-up crop.

  • ‘Live at the Apollo’ and ‘Mock the Week’ regular and host of the ‘Off Menu’ podcast Ed Gamble.
  • Edinburgh Festival’s Comedian’s Comedian Award winner, and soon to be star of ‘Taskmaster’ Lou Sanders.
  • One of Britain’s most celebrated rising stars Tez Ilyas.
  • The “sickeningly talented” Rhys James.
  • Edinburgh Festival Comedy Award nominee Dane Baptiste.
  • Winner of the Best Newcomer at the Black Entertainment Awards Babatunde Aléshé.

+ more acts to be announced.

Tickets are available from the venue. 

If you buy the more expensive ticket, which includes a donation to Farm Africa’s Coffee is Life appeal, the UK Government will double your donation. Meaning double the impact for African farmers.

Your donation will support Farm Africa projects across eastern Africa, and the matched funding unlocked from the UK government will directly fund a Farm Africa project that will give women in Kanungu in western Uganda the opportunity to make a decent living from coffee farming.
