Our selection of London’s alternative, clever and offbeat comedy gigs this week.
OK. Let's deal with the Daniel Rigby issue. Known to everyone as the 'annoying one' from the BT adverts, he's also won a BAFTA for playing young Eric Morecambe, more than holds his own against Stephen Fry in the Radio 4 series Warhorses of Letters and is also a stand-up. What we're saying is, the BT ads are an aberration. And we bet they pay well. Anyway, see him in a work in progress show at Soho Theatre on 25 November (£10, 9pm) and Invisible Dot on 5 December (£8, 9.30pm) with Mike Wozniak and Cariad Lloyd.
Help raise funds to restore Hoxton Hall with a night curated by Hat Trick Productions on 28 November. Cardinal Burns headline, plus Stu Hudson, Spencer Jones, Richard Todd, Matt Rees and more. Tickets from £25, 7pm.
See creative, quirky, offbeat stand-up, character and musical comedy with Knock2Bag at Rich Mix. Performers are Will Adamsdale, Mae Martin, Nathaniel Metcalfe, Phil Wang, Harriet Dyer, Oram & Meeten and Lloyd Griffith. 29 November, £8, 7.30pm.
Henning Wehn's Christmas
