The N20 comedy festival hits Battersea Arts Centre (BAC) this month, with a chance to catch the hottest names in comedy before they head to Edinburgh.

Audiences can expect to see an array of hotly-tipped newcomers, as well as household names Milton Jones, Tom Deacon and Jarred Christmas.

Comedy trio Pappy's Fun Club kickstart the festival with previews of their brand new sketches on February 15.

Their show is followed by the Best of New Comedy, featuring award-winning comedians Carria Lloyd, Ruth Bratt, Pippa Evans and Lucy Trodd.

Other highlights include Milton Jones of Mock the Week and weird-shirts fame, who plans to test out his latest material on Battersea audiences.

Jarred Christmas, who you may recognise from 8 out of 10 Cats, will be showing off his sideburns and glasses in Let's Go MoFo.

Add to the mix Radio 1 DJ Tom Deacon and character comedy from Ariadne The Greek WAG, and you have a whole selection of comedic delights to warm up the bleak mid-winter months.

The clever festival organisers have also scheduled the programme so on most nights the acts don't clash, giving viewers the chance to catch more than one show.

N20 is on at the Battersea Arts Centre, Lavender Hill from February 15-25.

Ticket prices range from £8 to £12. Shows start at 8pm and 10pm.
