Don't know about you, but we like to be 'in the know' about the comedy shows in London that are 'so totally hot right now'. Well, using some sort of complicated algorithm the list below gives you the top 10 most popular comedy shows currently on the Time Out website. Now you'll never miss out those hot tickets that everyone's talking about – hurrah!
Improv gets a bad rap in this country, but anyone who dismisses the genre clearly hasn't seen Austentatious. This highly impressive troupe perform a completely improvised Jane Austen novel, complete with period dress and cello accompaniment, with marvellous results. Made up of Andrew Murray, Amy Cooke-Hodgson, Joseph Morpurgo, Cariad Lloyd, Graham Dickson and Rachel Parris, they're all hugely talented performers, able to keep the gag rate high and the made-up story rolicking along. Tremendous fun.
Cult Scottish comic Limmy – aka Brian Limond – celebrates the release of his second book, 'That's Your Lot', with a live tour. Limmy's strange and hilarious TV sketch show – inventively titled 'Limmy's Show' – has a huge cult following, but because it's only broadcast in Scotland, we English folk have had to seek it out by other means (thank god for Netflix). Those loyal London fans will be out in force here.
The American born, Scottish stand-up presents his brand of offensive humour alongside a selection of card tricks.
