We experienced several comedy shows in London – stand-up, improv, and theatrical comedy.
We saw Stewart Lee perform a 90 minute set at the Leicester Square . He performed his 2011 show Carpet Remnant World. If he’s on while you’re visiting and your into smart, liberal comedy – check him out,
We also saw Sam Simmoms perform his inappropriate sketch comedy Meanwhile and Thing’s at the be Soho Theatre. The opening wear he walks out in a NASA space suit to deliver a box of Old El paso to an audience member is unreal. Never have a comedian’s balls been so prevalent in a show. Sam spends most of the ahow wearing t-shirt and shorts pajamas. Sam’s ability to switch gears and inhabit different ridiculous characters back to back is impressive.
We were also lucky enough to James Corden as Frances in One Man, Two Guvnors. Do what you have to to get tickets to this hilarious show. The show is sold out through it’s current engagement, but every day there are day tickers available if you’re willing to wait in line at Adelphi Theatre. I recommend queueing up at 7am to guarantee you get tickets to the show the day of your choice. I arrived at 9:15 am and the matinee and evening shows sold out several people in front of me. For some reason none of them asked for tickets for the next day. I did and thankfully got the last two tix available as returns for the following evening. One Man, Two Guvnors was one of my favorite experiences in London.
