Richard Herring – Lord of the Dance Settee

Richard Herring's eleventh solo show in 11 years doesn't have a particular theme (unlike his recent offerings 'Hitler Moustache', 'We're All Going to Die' and 'Talking Cock: The Second Coming'). 'Lord of the Dance Settee' is a collection of chunks of material about misheard song lyrics, the power of a sombrero and a man possibly named 'Dave Manager'. The consummate comic pedantically picks apart each of his thoughts and observations, and it's typically good fun.

John Shuttleworth – A Wee Ken to Remember

Lights! Camera! Improvise!

You make up three movie titles. They improvise three trailers. You pick which one you want to watch and they create the whole thing before your eyes. Lights! Camera!

Monday might be the dullest day of the week, but the Monday club tries its best to liven it up with top-notch stand-up onboard a boat. There are usually excellent bills here.

Austentatious – An Improvised Novel

  • Critics choice

Improv gets a bad rap in this country, but anyone who dismisses the genre clearly hasn't seen Austentatious. This highly impressive troupe perform a completely improvised Jane Austen novel, complete with period dress and cello accompaniment, with marvellous results. Made up of Andrew Murray, Amy Cooke-Hodgson, Joseph Morpurgo, Cariad Lloyd, Graham Dickson and Rachel Parris, they're all hugely talented performers, able to keep the gag rate high and the made-up story rolicking

  1. Leicester Square Theatre 6 Leicester Place, WC2H 7BX
  2. Mon Dec 1 - Sun Dec 14

Mark Thomas – Cuckooed

Following his mischievous '100 Acts of Minor Dissent' show, superb campaigning comic Mark Thomas goes a little more theatrical for his latest show, 'Cuckooed'. He's roped in director Emma Callander to help him tell a remarkable true story: Thomas discovered that a close friend of his was spying on him for Britain's biggest arms dealer. We're certainly intrigued.

  1. Tricycle 269 Kilburn High Rd, NW6 7JR
  2. Mon Dec 1 - Sat Dec 13
