Beckenham is getting its ribs tickled by a comedy club that’s packing ‘em in on the last Friday of every month.

St George’s Church Hall in Albemarle Road is the venue for the Beckenham Comedy Cabaret, run by Jody Kamali. The club has proved such a success that a second club will open in Petts Wood on April 8.

Jody is working with CBeebies presenters Sid and Rebecca from hit TV show Let’s Play to present The Little Big Variety Show for ages 4+ at St Georges Hall on April 23.

He said: “It’s all the silliness and chaos of the monthly Beckenham Comedy Cabaret, but for kids.”
