London comedy NEWS, feat Tim Key
This week's parish notices are on Tim Key, Greg Davies, the Comedy Tree and more
• Tim Key – look at him! – has announced a run of his most recent show, Masterslut. It was his 2011 Edinburgh show and London is Funny gave it 5 big ones. Now it is getting quite possibly its last outing, at the Arts Theatre from November 15-24. Full details and booking here.
• Man/comedy mountain Greg Davies has added another London date of his new show. He will be performing The Back Of My Mum's Head at the Hammersmith Apollo on November 27, and if it's half as good as his last show it should be a cracker. Tickets on sale now.
• If you live around Putney/Fulham way and have never been to the Comedy Tree, this Friday presents an ideal opportunity. The club is celebrating its 10th birthday, and the anniversary show features a special appearance by hero of the British comedy scene, Milton Jones. The club has recently moved to a new home on Fulham High Street, and has had recent appearances from Stephen Merchant and Micky Flanagan. The birthday show will also feature spots from the original Comedy Tree duo Erich McElroy and Pete Jonas, full details here.
• Any new-ish comedians out there in search of a new act competition, Laughing Horse is now taking entries for its annual, nationwide contest. The heats begin in November and it culminates in the final in May at Highlight Camden. The prize this year, thanks to We Got Tickets putting heir hands in their pockets, is £2,000. Matt Rees won last year, and previous winners and finalists include Russell Kane, Jack Whitehall, Greg Davies, Rhod Gilbert, and Nina Conti. For competition entry information, click here.
