A comedy showcase will mark 10 years since the passing of one of Greenwich’s comedy legends.

The iconic Malcolm Hardee, described by the Guardian as ‘godfather to a generation of comic talent in the 1980s’, died ten years ago on January 31.

His funeral at St Alfege’s Church in Greenwich attracted 700 mourners and eulogies were delivered by comedy greats Jo Brand, Arthur Smith and Stewart Lee, as well as his son Frank Hardee.

Another local, Jools Holland played piano.

Malcolm founded the comedy clubs The Tunnel and Up the Creek, which has been home to many of stand-ups biggest stars.

A special gig is being put on at Up the Creek on February 2 to celebrate Malcolm’s life and to raise money to complete a documentary on his life, called All The Way From Over There.

The bill includes Malcolm’s comedy troupe The Greatest Show on Legs as well as a long list of other great acts including EastEnders star and surreal stand-up Terry Alderton and Funny Woman 2014 Winner Jayde Adams.

More high-profile names are yet to be announced.
