News: Clapham Grand Announces Comedy Season With Daniel Sloss, Russell Howard, Jimmy Carr & More

London’s iconic venue The Clapham Grand has announced a run of post-lockdown shows for 2020. Names announced include Russell Howard, Daniel Sloss, Jimmy Carr, The Vivienne, Baga Chipz, Courtney Act and Crystal Methyd.

The Grand has been one of the first venues to get up and running with socially distanced shows. A run of Save Live Comedy online gigs was quickly converted into shows with audiences following the loosening of lockdown rules regarding indoor performances in August.

The current run just announced includes a four-night residency from Daniel Sloss (pictured) performing his new touring show HUBRIS from November 2 - 5. Sloss is also playing shows around the UK and is scheduled to perform at the London Palladium in October. More details here.

The Clapham Grand is one of 135 grassroots music venues to receive emergency funding as part of the Government’s £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund. The shows will also mark the re-opening of the refurbished top tier balcony for the first time in 15 years bringing the distanced capacity to 400. It was last used when Oasis played at the venue.

This Friday 18th September Frank Turner, returns to Clapham Grand after raising £25k for the ‘Save The Grand’ campaign by playing a Government endorsed pilot of his ‘Independent Venue Love’ live stream from the venue in the summer.
