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

Cardinal Burns

  • Critics choice

Cardinal Burns are longtime circuit favourites and stars of their own brilliantly funny British Comedy Award-winning Channel 4 series. Now they’re setting out on their first live tour (about bloody time!), and Londoners are treated to a full two-week run at the Soho Theatre. Expect silly, slightly perverse sketches and subtle, worryingly believable performances. Dustin Demri-Burns and Seb Cardinal are mighty talented. Read Cardinal and Burns’s interviews with each other
