This is a nicely cozy theatre in a lovely pub in a picturesque part of Little Venice in the best city in the world. Having to pay for theatre membership is a minor annoyance.

This is a really adorable little theatre in a lovely location near Little Venice and at the top of a really decent pub. The small size makes it quite intimate which really adds to the ambience of the show and I really love the seating layout where the audience sits around tables to watch the performance. It makes it more of a social event rather than just trying to cram in as many seats as possible.


The downsides of this venue is that unfortunately there doesn't seem to be any sound proofing and the pub kitchen must be located right next to the theatre. This means we could hear staff washing up,clattering pots and pans and chatting loudly. This really ruins the atmosphere for the show and it must be off putting for the performers. It was also incredibly hot where I was sat so I couldn't wait to get outside after the show and get some air.


I also wasn't very happy at the fact that I had to pay for a membership on top of the price of the ticket. I'm not really sure how often I'll be coming back so it doesn't seem fair to insist on having a membership.

Great evening of satirical laugh out loud comedy at the NewsRevue last night. Cast of 4 with talented musical director kept us laughing throughout the all too short hour. Sketches and some fine singing from the cast. Notable standout moments were Doanld Trump, Nicola Sturgeon and the 4 Labour Candidates who all get their comeuppance. Go and see this!

Hilarious, very well put together show. Brilliant comic timing delivered by a very talented cast. Some very funny references to living in London that everyone will appreciate! Highly recommend!

The London Revue: What an unexpected and delectable treat. The 20-strong song list benefits from an impressive cast of six, with just the right amount of movement to enhance their vocal stylings. Great directing in terms of pacing and transitions between songs. Pieces range in subject matter from Tube etiquette - or lack thereof - to ripped off tourists, the deranged glee of burglars and fraudsters, a London Marathoner's biography, saucy dates at Kew Gardens, and a run-down of the City's culinary delights by postcode, amongst others. Two very good songs worth mentioning are: The Nearly Mets and The Ballad of Vera & Bob. The score itself is incredibly clever, rife with witty and often touching observations about London's idiosyncracies, which make it so special for both those who live here and those just passing through. James Michalos has accurately captured the zeitgeist of modern-day living in The Big Smoke from just about every angle. Leaves you wondering if telepathy DOES exist...! Perfect for the intimate Canal Cafe Theatre, though would be suited to a larger West End stage with the songs or set list extended. GO SEE THIS SHOW!! It's an absolute fringe gem.

What a wonderful hour well spent! Fantastic little theatre and a truly fantastic show. I would recommend the London Revue to anyone. Brilliant cast and humourous, heartfelt songs. You will laugh out loud, and probably shed a tear too. See this show.

1hr of pure entertainment in a pretty part of town. Too many laugh out loud moments to count, also a few tears! Comic timing was spot on and great voices. I would say a must see for all Londoners. Loved it.
