Angel Comedy

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

The Goodfather

Head-fuck genius Phil Kay is joined on his Goodfather ship by a bill of rising comedy stars. September 2's bill includes circuit legend Terry Alderton, loony stand-up Tim Shishodia, the brilliantly bizarre Mark Silcox, Thanyia Moore and mad character comic Ali Brice.

Rhys Nicholson – Eurgh

Young, dapper Australian stand-up Rhys Nicholson brings his solo show to London off the back of a well-received Edinburgh Fringe run. The unashamedly brash and fabulously filthy comic mixes anecdotes and caustic lines to discuss the differences between those who protect and those who are protected, or 'guard llamas' and 'sheep'.

  2. Tue Sep 2 - Sun Sep 7
