Politics is boring. Politics is complicated. Politics is for adults.

Rubbish! Politics is actually super important and can be made really fun, if you know how. Luckily Tatton Spiller (Simple Politics) and Tiernan Douieb (Comedy Club 4 Kids, CBBC's The Slammer) know exactly how and will show you over 60 minutes just how to make sense of it all.

You might not be able to vote. Not yet. You do have opinions, though. You know the world you want to see. You know what’s right and what’s wrong. Also, you want to have a fun. Comedy Club 4 Kids specialise in making children laugh & Simple Politics specialise in making them understand how politics works in a clear, informative and fun way. So we’ve teamed up for a show that keep you entertained, engaged and informed so you can also shout at the telly along with your parents during Question Time!

View Seating Plan

The Underbelly tent is situated at Jubilee Gardens, Belvedere Road, close to Waterloo train and tube stations in the heart of central London. A sister venue to the Underbelly theatre in Edinburgh, Udderbelly is completely unmissable, in terms of both the acts it presents and the way that it looks : it’s an enormous purple tent in the shape of an upside-down cow!
This bonkersly bovine 410-seat venue was founded by directors Ed Bartlam and Charlie Wood. It originally opened in 2006 as part of the Edinburgh Festival and has since been spotted grazing happily at the Brighton Fringe.
Now a regular summer fixture in London, the venue is host to the annual E4 Udderbelly Festival at Southbank Centre, an 8 week, annual summer beano comprising circus acts and cabaret shows for all the family. In 2010 the season was extended to 10 weeks and in 2011 the festival played a whopping 13 weeks on the Southbank.
Udderbelly has been an enormous success, quickly establishing a reputation not only for being a great fun destination in its own right, but for hosting the very best in comedy, theatre and music.
A veritable roll-call of the cream of British comedy talent has processed beneath Udderbelly’s magnificent heavenward-pointing teats in recent times, including Marcus Brigstocke, Kevin Bridges, Reginald D Hunter, Sarah Millican, Jon Richardson and Shappi Khorsandi.
The wacky design, cow-lossal size and electric atmosphere of the Udderbelly tent make it the perfect place to see plays, bands and comedians at their finest. Recent successes include The Adventurers Club, Showstopper! The Improvised Musical, Havana Rumba and So Long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, Goodbye.
Whatever you decide to see at the Udderbelly, we wish you an entertaining and rewarding visit.
