Time Out says

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.

Richard Herring: Can I Have My Ball Back?

  • Stand-up

You used to be able to set you clock by the the advent of a new Richard Herring live show: there would be one per year, every year, and he would take it to the Edinburgh Fringe. Now, though, it’s been a walloping six years since Herring has created one of his pedantic, surreal, invariably high concept offerings – in large part because after spending decades in the shadow of his former comedy partner Stewart Lee, he’s finally found something like mainsteam success with his Live from Leicester Square Theatre podcast series.  Now he returns to frontline service with a show about his 2021 brush with testicular cancer, which resulted in the removal of a the titular ball.
