Formerly known as The Venue, Leicester Square Theatre gave the beery, dank space something of a facelift in 2008 and opened with a bill of comedy, cabaret and theatre that included Joan Rivers, burlesque star Polly Rae and an experimental take on Oscar Wilde's 'Dorian Gray'. Its diddy basement bar is one of the most intimate places to catch a comic or cabaret turn in town.
What's on at Leicester Square Theatre
Pop, Solo shows, Musical comedy
Australian comedy band The Axis of Awesome, best know for their 'Four Chord Song' which has racked up over 20 million YouTube views, hit London. They mix original comedy songs with pop parodies and are a big hit at the Edinburgh Fringe.
Musical comedy, Fringe, Cabaret
An old nostalgia fest from Stuart Saint starring cabaret and club performer Dusty O as Lady Veronica Burlington who will transform the theatre to an old music hall with dancing, singing, comedy and even a bit of the ukulele.
Stand-up, Solo shows
The ultra laidback Canadian comic is back on tour, after hugely successful performances on 'Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow' and 'Live at the Apollo'. He's a charming story-teller, with a superbly oddball view of the world.
