I don't normally feature comedy, circus and cabaret on the site, but the Udderbelly Festival takes place on the Southbank and is HUGE! So here, belatedly, is a plug for it.

E4 Udderbelly Festival at Southbank Centre, London
6 April to 8 July 2012
We are delighted to announce that E4 Udderbelly Festival has opened its doors at Southbank Centre for its fourth ox-hilerating year.
Our upside-down purple cow will play host to a full programme of family shows, music, theatre and the biggest comedy programme anywhere in London.
With an excellent programme of internationally renowned artists like Tim Minchin, Greg Davies, Nina Conti, Abandoman and many more it's full cream ahead as E4 Udderbelly Festival returns until Sun 8 July.

Underbelly is a UK based live entertainment company. We run Underbelly at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe - one of the largest venue operations at the largest arts festival in the world - and E4 Udderbelly Festival at Southbank Centre in London. Our iconic upside-down purple cow venue - E4 Udderbelly - is an annual fixture on both the London and Edinburgh skylines. Through our Underbelly Productions arm we also produce and promote live shows for UK and international touring. In short, we're all about entertaining people... and last year over 350,000 bought tickets to our shows.
In 2009, Underbelly joined forces with Southbank Centre to launch the E4 Udderbelly Festival at Southbank Centre - an 8 week summer festival of the brightest comedy, circus, family and cabaret shows. In 2010 we extended the season to 10 weeks and in 2011 E4 Udderbelly Festival played a whopping 13 weeks on the Southbank.
