The best comedy shows in London this week
The next seven days of laughter in London
As the unofficial comedy capital of the world, London's comedy circuit doesn't take a break. There are stand-up shows seven days a week, from early evening through to the small hours. To help you plan your week of witticisms, here's a nifty calendar of the best comedy shows in London this week.
This Kilburn club has been running every week for yonks now, still bringing it top notch line-ups for just a fiver. For each line-up see the dates below.
Stand-up from carefully selected open-mic comics and experienced acts testing new stuff or performing solid-gold sets – all for free (with a voluntary donation at the end, of course). The room gets absolutely rammed, so get down there early if you want to grab a seat. The club's now running seven nights a week. Mondays are improv shows, Tuesday's show features an hour-long solo show or Edinburgh Fringe preview, and Wednesdays and Sundays are new act and new material gigs. To
Fans of hugely popular podcast 'The Bugle' rejoice! Co-host Andy Zaltzman is back at Soho Theatre with his 'Satirist for Hire' show. Email Zaltzman with what you'd like him to satirise, and he'll do just that. He's still probably the best satirical comic we've produced in yonks. He's intelligent, biting and silly enough not to take himself too seriously. A master satirist.
- Critics choice
A top line-up comes together tonight to perform in aid of the charity International Alert. Alistair Barrie MCs, with sets from Canadian punmeister and ace gagsmith Stewart Francis, the grizzled and hilarious Rich Hall, plus Matt Rees, Daniel Simonsen and Nick Revell.
Super-smart stand-up and 2014 Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Sara Pascoe hosts a group of very talented comics, who are all testing new material and ideas. And it'll cost you less than the price of a panini. September 22's line-up includes Pascoe introducing erudite wonder Robin Ince, lovable loon Lou Sanders and cheeky Bristolian John Robins.
Mexican-born, North Carolina-raised comic Tim Renkow has won just about every new act competition going. Renkow has cerebral palsy, and smartly plays with audience preconceptions about his condition. But most of his material focuses on his US upbringing and experiences of London life. He's definitely one to watch.
A set from the wonderful comedy poet laureate John Hegley and his friends. On September 22 he's joined by Rachel Pantechnicon and Diego Brown & the Good Fairy.
