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 central London club, at the newly renovated Comedy Pub, always features good, solid line-ups for some weekend giggles every Friday and Saturday night. For the latest line-ups see the dates below.
This brash, confrontational and dangerously funny comic has just added a second Brixton date (July 31) due to popular demand. Jefferies's ability to both charm and offend the crowd in equal measure has gained him a hardcore audience, and having practically given up booze (well, on stage, at least), his shows are now far more consistent. His drunken anger when things aren't going well has gone, and so has (most) of the blatant misogyny. Now based Stateside, and with a second

This cult American showcase of odd and hysterical undiscovered videos is a hoot. Hosts Nick Prueher and Joe Pickett introduce clips from their 20-year-old collection of VHS videos found at garage sales and thrift shops across the US.

Devilish Pittsburgh-born comic Anthony Jeselnik is a dark, deranged stand-up, telling smartly constructed near-the-knuckle jokes. In the States he's had his own Comedy Central series, 'The Jeselnik Offensive' (geddit?) which has landed him in trouble a bunch of times. You'll find yourself laughing at his so-wrong-they're-right jokes before you even get a chance to wince. Shockingly funny.
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
Comedy Carnival, in the West End, takes place every Friday and Saturday night with line-ups of circuit regulars, and various drink and show packages are available. For the latest bills check each date below.
There’s no doubt about it, the Comedy Store is the daddy of all comedy clubs, and what most other gigs strive to be. Seemingly as old as London itself, the club has been instrumental in the growth of alternative comedy, and still to this day hosts stunning shows most nights of the week. At weekends they host conservative stand-up shows, with circuit stalwarts performing their tried-and-tested sets. See below for the latest line-ups. Check out our guide to the Comedy Store.
Stand-up for Tooting dwellers from lots of pro and rising comics. Check the dates below for the full line-ups.
