About the event

Mmm! Another helping of deliciously different comedy, hand-picked with love for you and your mates.

Come wrap up your Sunday with a hand-picked, fruity fresh mix of the most original acts in stand-up, experimental and alternative comedy, from big TV names to undiscovered peaches.

Conceived in a late-night delirium of pineapple chunks, Permitted Fruit is hosted by stand-up/alternative comedy collision Sian Docksey (“???? Joy and bewilderment in equal measure” - The Skinny) with the mission of staging the highest-quality oddness from acts she thinks are just great. Enter Sian’s queer polyamorous comrade Magic BanAnna, who platforms voices not given enough space in the mainstream, and who for an anarchist is frankly shockingly good at organizing things. They started plotting the kind of comedy night they’d like to bring their mates and dates to, and BOOM!: in the sudden oxidization of wonky bananas and thirsty melon emojis, they had themselves a show. This month's sweet and zesty 5-a-day are:

Extraordinary collision of character comedy, tinfoil, absurdism and shambolic joy. Cheekykita has supported Robin Ince, Tony Law and Simon Munnery on tour and has been compared to Spike Milligan.

“Alice in Wonderland on Adderal … curious, shambolic and kind of magical” - The List.
????? “A work of genius” - Funny Women
????? “ The silliest, maddest, funniest hour I have ever spent and it is fantastic” - Fringe Review
????“Like the Mighty Boosh on crack” - Broadway Baby
“One of the strangest acts you’re ever likely to see. But see her you must, because it’s very difficult to describe exactly why she’s a genius” - Manchester Wire
“A Mancunian Maverick, like no one else out there” - The Alarmist

Award-nominated comedian and creator of the cult fringe show Hell To Play.

“Touched with madness... I don't think I can begin to do him justice; a producer and performer of some refreshingly different material" - Chortle
“Warm, insane and very funny” - Stephen Appleby, The Guardian
????? - One4Review
???? - The Stage

Scathing, playful, laid-back and assured, Mary brings her perplexed take on life to the stage. She flits from angry to surreal when she can be bothered.

Your guide to the cosmic void of outer space and broken dreams.

Permitted Fruit is delighted to have a home at The Apple Tree pub in Clerkenwell, a unique LGBTQ+ friendly venue and host to all things beautifully unconventional. The Apple Tree serves a delicious selection of Vegan Sunday Roasts, alongside small platters and gorgeous cocktails and mocktails. And because they’re nice, the show wraps up by 9pm so you have plenty of time to hang out, soak up the good vibes and/or head home before the wage slavery on Monday can recommence.
