Hosted by character comedian and impressionist Liam Hourican (Very Important People, The IT Crowd, Murder in Successville), this anarchic comedy night in Stoke Newington brings together the best alternative and character acts on the circuit. Surreal, absurdist, and satirical, this month’s line up previews Edinburgh gold from Rachel Parris, Jenny Bede, Mike Hayley and Marny Godden. As well as bringing fantastic, original comedy to Hackney, Cabaret Sauvignon is committed to helping refugees. Each month the proceeds of the night are donated to a different refugee charity. This month we are raising funds for Love Music Hate Racism.
There will be a raffle on the night with prizes including the iconic LMHR t-shirt (as worn by Stormzy and Ed Sheeran), LMHR tote bag and the new book ‘Reminiscence of Rock Against Racism’ edited by RAR founders Roger Huddle and Red Saunders.

Jenny first gained a following on YouTube by writing, directing and performing in a series of topical parody music videos, gaining over 2million views as well as the eye of the industry.
She started stand up in April 2013, winning Best Newcomer at the Musical Comedy Awards after just three gigs.

Essex boy Johnny Cochrane’s infectious charisma and cheeky charm landed him his own comedy sketch series on CBBC, alongside sidekick Inel Tomlinson. The Johnny & Inel Show was met with huge critical praise leading to nominations for two Royal Television Society Awards including Best Comedy Programme and Best Performance in a Comedy. As creator, writer and star of all 26 episodes, Cochrane quickly established himself as a bold and staggeringly ambitious Writer/Performer.
This rising star has since gone on to become a regular face on television with credits including: Safe Word (ITV2), The Funny Thing About (C5), The Dog Ate My Homework (CBBC), Sunday Brunch (C4), All Over the Place (CBBC) and Match of The Day Kickabout (BBC). He is also a firm favourite on radio, having presented two hugely successful high energy shows on both Fubar and Virgin.
