Laugh Out London | The Antelope SW17 | 18 Apr
It’s a cracking line up for Laugh Out London at The Antelope in Tooting, so even if Tooting isn’t on your doorstep, you ought to make the effort to get there. And that line up, for your information, is as follows: Tony Law, John Kearns, Lou Sanders, and Jayde Adams, hosted by Jordan Brookes. Yes, I said cracking and I meant cracking. See this page here for info and ticket link.

Taival | Jacksons Lane | 18 Apr
Part of Sirkus, Jacksons Lane’s Finnish circus showcase, this appears to offer a very contemporary take on the genre, incorporating elements of dance, circus and visual theatre and effective use of light and sound. The piece presents a portrait of the human body, and explores themes of manipulation, control, beauty and pain, which sounds both challenging and engaging. Click here for details.

Cuncrete | Soho Theatre | 18-22 Apr (pictured)
A very, very interesting show, this, which we first heard about up at the old edfringe last summer. Rachael Clarke and The Great White Males present this punk, drag king gig-cum-musical featuring original songs, “grotesque posturing, sharp suits and wet cement”, which has a searing critique of alpha (toxic?) masculinity and the connected unpleasantness of capitalism at its heart. Head this way for more.
