With Comic In Tent

Malcolm Hardee was a central figure in the LONDON comedy world.

He was there at the beginning of ALTERNATIVE COMEDY in the 80s with The Greatest Show on Legs and went on to run two of the most infamous comedy clubs in Britain: the Tunnel Club, and then Up The Creek in South LONDON.

And from the very beginning of the GLASTONBURY Festival he became synonymous with comedy there; every year the somewhat shambling and shambolic figure of Malcolm Hardee would arrive to compere on the Cabaret stage.

When he died earlier this year, his funeral was standing room only.

Family and friends were joined by fans, Tunnel Club habitu退s and comedians who are household names.

They came to pay tribute to someone who was loved and despaired of in equal measure.

Arthur Smith introduces a tribute to Malcolm Hardee from the Cabaret Marquee at GLASTONBURY, with top name comedians including Stewart Lee, Simon Munnery and Jeff Green.
