Comedy Slice #54

Art & Culture

This weeks comedy slice is like a bag of Revels,  filled with a selection of succulent comedy morsels for all!

Friday 18th – Cariad & Paul: A two-play player adventure – Pleasance Theatre – 7

If you were a fan of 90s comedy wonder Whose Line Is It Anyway? or if the off the cuff skills of Abandoman make your sides split with laughter then you are spontaneous improv comedy lover, and  this show is so far up your street it is in your living room sitting on your lap. Improv veterans Cariad Lloyd and Paul Foxcroft bring their sell out Edinburgh show to the streets of London for a mere two nights. Taking a single word from the audience these two acrobats of the spontaneous, dive into a show devised on the spot. Go armed with a good word to throw at them.

Sunday 20th – NewsRevue – Canal Cafe Theatre – 12.50

How do you stay on stop of current affairs? Paper, TV, online, radio snippets, word of mouth? Or do you feel completely out the loop news-wise (with the exception of knowing all about Miley Cyruss latest exploits). How about if I told you that you could get your news in comedy format?  Salvation from ignorance is here in the form of Newsrevue. Think Mock The Week or Have I Got News for you but live and without points. Knowledge and a laugh, even the legendary Jon Snow cant deliver this. (Or could he?)  

Wednesday 23 – The Bad Boy of Feminism – Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club – 5 

Something happened to James Mullinger after University. At the end of his degree in Womens Studies,  Mullinger seemed to hand back his feminist movement card to head over to the dark side with a job on a mens magazine alongside a career as a stand-up comedian. Following his critically acclaimed sell-out solo tour Mullinger is back for one night only to seek redemption in a show of completely new material all about life for a male feminist. Intrigued? You should be, its going be hilarious.
