News   Joan Rivers Is First to Play London's "Udderbelly"; 40 Acts Planned
The E4 Udderbelly — a giant, 400-seat tent shaped as a giant upside down purple cow that has become an annual fixture at the Edinburgh Fringe, where sat in Bristo Square every August — is grazing to pastures new: it will pitch itself at London's Southbank Centre.

Sandwiched between the London Eye and Royal Festival Hall, the tent will house more than 40 shows May 27-July 19. The season begins with Joan Rivers in her new show Unplugged and Uncensored (May 27-29), with appearances by comedy acts Jimeoin (June 8-14), The Comedy Store Players (June 16), Rhona Cameron (July 4), Rhod Gilbert (July 10), Reginald D Hunter (July 11-12), Jason Byrne (July 17-18); music acts including Tom Tom Crew, fusing circus, music and spectacle (May 27-July 19) and Camille O’Sullivan (June 27); and theatre shows including a stage version of Private Peaceful, a wartime novel by Michael Morpurgo whose War Horse was also adapted for the stage (running May 27-July 19), The Terrible Infants, based upon a series of twisted tales by Oliver Lansley and Sam Wyer, and blending puppetry, live music, performance, story telling and physicality (May 27-July 19).
