Preview: The Horne Section With Alex Horne

Mixing jazz and comedy on a Monday night, Alex Horne hosts "unique and hilarious noises" at the Lyric Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue for 5 weeks.

In the jazz tradition, much of the show is improvised. Comedians confirmed to jam along with Horne's excellent jazz band include Tim Key, Tom Basden, Mark Watson. Doc Brown, Tim Minchin and a welcome and yet possibly frightening return to the stage from kids' entertainer, Jeremy Lion.

But you're also promised the cream of cabaret, juggling and - um - stripping. We have no expectations except that it will be fun.

Here's a wee song about balding to whet your appetite.

The Horne Section starts on Monday 31st January at The Lyric, Shaftesbury Avenue, W1 at 7.30pm. Tickets from £12.

We last encountered Alex Horne's work documenting one hundred days in the life of his baby at London Word Festival.
