We love a bit of musical comedy here at Time Out. From Bill Bailey's orchestral deconstructions, to Doc Brown's super-sharp raps about tea-making, via the Brett Domino Trio's awkward covers of Justin Timberlake hits.
The good news is, musical comedians are always popping up on the London comedy circuit, and plenty perform their own solo shows. The list below shows the next ten comedy gigs in London featuring a musical comic.
Upcoming musical comedy shows in London
This classy stand-up show has a loose, slightly unusual format: all the comics are sat on stage throughout the gig, standing-up to perform their, well, stand-up, backed by swing music. It's all laidback, cheesey, joyful fun and has a wonderfully friendly vibe. If you want to find you're A-number one, top of the list, king of the hill (sorry, we'll stop), head down to the Rat Pack. Check 'dates and times' to see who'll be joining host Nathan Cassidy next.Read more
This mini-fest of laughs takes places on Thursdays, and a few other sporadic dates, throughout June, July and August in various Croydon venues. In June and July you can catch acts workshopping their latest Edinburgh Fringe shows, and in August comics not performing in Edinburgh this year take over the Oval Tavern's garden stage. Acts include Mark Thomas, Nick Helm, Sara Pascoe, Richard Herring and many more. Check 'dates and times' for the full line-ups.Read more
