There’s an egg here to find other eggs and see if they’re OK? 30 minutes of relaxing nonsense. For anyone aged 0-99 that ever had a little crack. By Lucy Pearman (LetLuce, Weirdos, The Bill).

‘Delightful Lucy Pearman is a genuine comedy talent, subtle, straight and seemingly completely crackers’ (




ben-van-der-veldeben-van-der-veldeBen Van der Velde is a stand-up comedian, actor, improviser and presenter, who, over the past few years, has spread joy and nonsense to all four corners of the British Isles, as well as Estonia, Latvia, Finland and Norway.

A sharp and crafty gagsmith, with wittily obtuse takes on…an impressively wide range of topics…bringing flair and confidence to them all.’ (Steve Bennett, Chortle)

All tickets are free and will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis from 1.30pm.

This event will be held at Dalston Square and is supported by London Borough of Hackney.
