The best comedy shows in London this Monday

Angel Comedy

  • Free

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 either 'Bad Film Nights' or improv shows, Tuesday's show features an hour-long solo show or Edinburgh Fringe preview, and Wednesdays and Sundays are new act

  1. Camden Head 2 Camden Walk, N1 8DY
  2. Wed Apr 16 - Sun Apr 27

Adam Buxton – Kernel Panic

  • Critics choice

The 'Adam' half of 'Adam & Joe' has been hosting brilliant fun music videos-based night Bug for yonks, but now he's going solo with a new tech-heavy solo show, which he's bringing back to London after a run at the Union Chapel. The show explores how we present ourselves in the internet age. Basically, Buxton + a laptop = brilliant buffoonery! These tickets will be snapped up super-quickly, so book soon.
