Comedy in London this winter
Date Posted: 13/01/15
With Christmas and New Year over and done with, and spring still looking a long way off, you're never more in need of a pick-me-up on the happiness scale than during the months from January to March. So why not make the most of London's vibrant entertainment scene and seek out some top-notch comedy this winter? Below are some of our favourite acts.
Tony Law - ToneZone
Canadian absurdist Tony Law rocks up at the Soho Theatre for a stint that will last until January 17th, and with a few extra dates from the 29th until the 31st at the Leicester Square Theatre. Having proven that he can tickle our funnybones by appearing on panel shows including Mock the Week and Have I Got News For You, Law brings a show involving plenty of silliness and chaos to the centre of London's West End.
Bridget Christie - An Ungrateful Woman
Another offering from the riot of hilarity that is the Soho Theatre, Bridget Christie's fiery yet funny criticism of sexism once again proves a massive hit with comedy lovers everywhere. Capable of going from irrelevant silliness one minute before becoming deadly serious in just a millisecond, her show is not to be missed. She'll be at the venue until January 24th, and will return in March for a short stint from the 2nd until the 6th.
Milton Jones and the Temple of Daft
Much-loved Mock the Week regular Milton Jones comes back to London this February for two shows only, bringing his unique brand of surreal one-liners with him. This latest show features Jones at his best - or bizarrest, depending on how you look at it - and sees him weaving a hypnotic wand of lunacy over the audience as always. Two dates in February (7th-8th) are followed by two in March (11th-12th) and one in May (1st).
Nina Conti - In Your Face
Spectacularly funny Nina Conti, who has been successfully proving to audiences across the UK that ventriloquism is one of the best ways to get a laugh out of people, once again returns for a typically chaotic show. Featuring her favourite puppets and a number of new faces, the Bafta nominee will be taking to the stage at Tricycle in Kilburn from February 9th until the 14th. Conti will then return to London in March at the Soho Theatre for a limited stint from the 12th to the 16th.
Sara Pascoe vs History
There's no better way to warm up from the cold February wind than with the welcoming charms of Sarah Pascoe, whose fantastic political satire intermixed with extended anecdotes and metaphors from her home life is breathtakingly funny. She'll be at the Soho Theatre from February 16th until the 21st, so don't miss out.
