London Laughs

An exhibtion of original cartoons featuring "London landmarks or London itself as the theme" opens today at the Political Cartoon Gallery on Store Street.

Around 50 cartoons dating from the 30s up to the present day will be on display, with names such as James Gillray and E H Shepard (who gets his own show at the gallery next year) represented alongside more contemporary artists like Steve Bell and Martin Rowson.

Best of all is the fact that Ken himself will be there today to open the exhibition, despite featuring in quite a few of the cartoons in a less than flattering light.

And we're sure Ken will be back at the gallery in January for the 'Misunderestimating the President Through Cartoons' exhibit. Excellent.

London laughs is at the Political Cartoon Gallery from today until 10 November. Entrance is free.
