<p>Back by popular demand! The Loch-less monster returns to the Soho Theatre to terrorise and baffle patrons with his unique blend of meaningless card tricks and unnecessary swearing!</p> <p>Jerry Sadowitz is best known as the most offensive stand-up comedian in the world, but he is also one of the best close up magicians, inventing tricks and presentations that other better known magicians incorporate in their acts.</p> <p>In this show, he will try as hard as he can to keep the level of offence to a minimum and showcase his magic skills so as to increase his demographic (haha). However, if you cover your ears, you’ll still get a great magic show. </p> <p>Magicians are not welcome as Jerry has had enough of his material “incorporated”, thanks.</p> <p><strong>Age Recommendation:</strong> 16+<br /> <strong>Running Time:</strong> Approx 60mins</p> ]]>

<p>Shappi presents England&#8217;s unsung heroine. For too many years she has been known as just ‘Nelson&#8217;s mistress&#8217;, a bit of a harlot. (You get <span class="caps">ONE</span> job in a brothel and bang goes your reputation.) Women&#8217;s lib wasn&#8217;t a &#8216;thing&#8217; in Georgian times, Emma moved mountains to haul herself from &#8216;scullery maid&#8217; to &#8216;Lady Hamilton&#8217;. Yes, she occasionally danced on tables naked to get ahead in life, but who hasn&#8217;t? As a fellow naked dancer on tables, Shappi is inspired by Emma, although she never wants hair big enough to house mice in.</p> <p><strong>Age Recommendation:</strong> 16+<br /> <strong>Running Time:</strong> Approx 60mins</p> ]]>

She doesn’t want to stay in the village. She doesn’t want to have a baby. She doesn’t want to laugh at racist jokes in the local pub. She’s got to get out. A partly autobiographical dark comedy about finding your voice. Written and performed by Alfred Fagon Award shortlisted writer Natasha Marshall.</p> <p><a href="https://tickets.edfringe.com/venues/assembly-george-square-theatre">Assembly George Square, The Box</a></p> <p><strong>Age Recommendation:</strong> 14+</p> <p><strong>Running Time:</strong> Approx 60mins</p> ]]>

<p>In an age of global socio-political turmoil, Shah presents a show about freedom, fascism, complacency, complicity, resistance, and milk. </p> <p>Ahir&#8217;s last show enjoyed packed runs at the Edinburgh Fringe, here, and a national tour.

<p>All the way from India, Aditi’s Edinburgh debut explores how her place in our global village makes her feel she belongs nowhere and everywhere at the same time. Confusing for someone who’s always been the village idiot, no matter how global it is. A show packed with her trademark ‘acerbic and cutting edge’ comedy (Mumbai Mirror) and charming (possibly litigious) parodies of people she’s met along the way. Aditi has appeared on every major English and Hindi network in India and starred in her own <span class="caps">BBC</span> Radio 4 series, A Beginner&#8217;s Guide to India.</p> <p><a href="http://www.underbellyedinburgh.co.uk/your-visit/venues/med-quad">Underbelly, Buttercup</a></p> <p><strong>Running Time:</strong> Approx 60mins</p> ]]>

<p>This is a show about all of us. But mainly about Bourgeois &amp; Maurice.</p> <p>A lot can change in 10 years. 2007 was the year that Steve Jobs unveiled the iPhone, Barack Obama announced his plans for Presidency, Tony Blair departed 10 Downing Street and, most importantly of all, Georgeois Bourgeois and Maurice Maurice were born. </p> <p>This August B&amp;M look back over a decade of social change in a musical retro-speculative that is part-fact, part-fiction and part-self indulgence. Picking highlights from their four albums of musical satire and social commentary, they attempt to make sense of a decade of rapid change, and work out whether they could, in fact, be to blame for it all? </p> <p>Blending the line between contemporary cabaret, alternative comedy and prancing around in sequins, Bourgeois &amp; Maurice have established themselves as one of the UK’s most subversive and innovative musical acts. They had one of the top twenty best-reviewed comedy shows at Edinburgh Fringe 2016 with How to Save the World Without Really Trying, and their work has been seen around the globe from New York to Belgrade, from a converted public toilet to the Royal Opera House. </p> <p>Don’t miss this chance to celebrate the world that was, before we’re all vapourised in a nuclear war! </p> <p>Featuring guest performances from some of London’s most exciting new acts. </p> <p><strong>&#8216;B&amp;M have worked their way up from the capital’s alt-cabaret scene to become modern day music hall stars.&#8217;</strong><br /> Guardian </p> <p><strong>Running Time:</strong> Approx 70mins<br /> <strong>Age Recommendation:</strong> 16+</p> ]]>

<p>Two of the most distinctive voices in comedy come together in this incredible double bill headlining show, as Tim Heidecker makes his UK stand up debut alongside ‘America’s Funnyman’ Neil Hamburger.</p> <p>Comedian Tim Heidecker is often recognised for his collaborations with fellow comedian Eric Wareheim. The duo created and starred in two successful Adult Swim series <em>Tom Goes to the Mayor</em> (2004) and <em>Tim and Eric Awesome show</em>, <em>Great Job!</em> (2007). </p> <p>The two have also released several comic albums, created and starred in the film <em>Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie</em> (2012) and co-directed a series of popular Old Spice commercials starring actor Terry Crews. </p> <p>Heidecker has featured in films including <em>Bridesmaids</em> (2011) and <em>The Comedy</em> (2012) and released a number of comic albums including a collection of onetime presidential candidate Herman Cain-inspired music and Vice Magazine’s best album of 2013 Urinal St. Station. Heidecker has performed as his stand up comedian persona for sold out audiences across the <span class="caps">USA</span> and Canada.</p> <p>For 20 years Neil Hamburger has worked every imaginable stage, from New York’s Madison Square Garden and the UK’s Reading Festival, to a Hollywood cemetery, Tasmanian pubs, and an abandoned monkey cage in a decrepit Catskills zoo. With his unique brand of comedy, he has thrilled, perplexed and repulsed audiences worldwide, and now makes his long awaited return for his 4th engagement at Soho Theatre. </p> <p>Neil Hamburger was the subject of the critically-acclaimed dramatic 2015 feature film Entertainment, which premiered at the Sundance and Locarno Film Festivals and co-starred John C. Reilly, Tye Sheridan, and Michael Cera.</p> <p>This run of shows will also include a one-off matinee event on Saturday 2 September &#8211; a special screening hosted by the stars of the hit web series <a href="http://sohotheatre.com/whats-on/on-cinema-at-the-cinema/">On Cinema at the Cinema</a>, Tim Heidecker and Gregg Turkington.</p> <p><strong>Running Time:</strong> 70 mins<br /> <strong>Age Recommendation:</strong> 16+</p> ]]>

<p>After selling out an often-extended Off-Broadway run, Australian tour and London run at Soho Theatre, RuPaul&#8217;s Drag Race winner Jinkx Monsoon heads out across the UK with The Vaudevillians, a bawdy, rowdy musical comedy co-starring composer and musician Major Scales.</p> <p>Throughout the 1920&#8217;s Kitty Witless and Dr. Dan Von Dandy toured the United States as The Vaudevillians, wowing audiences with their edgy, original music. One day, while touring through Antarctica, they were victims of a devastating avalanche and were buried under two tons of sleet and snow &#8211; instantly freezing them alive. But thanks to Global Warming, they recently thawed out only to discover that pop artists had stolen their music and passed it off as their own. Now, at long last, they are taking to the stage to reclaim their songs, performing their music as originally composed. It’s a vintage cabaret with a twist of drag.</p> <p><strong>Liverpool Homotopia, Unity Theatre</strong> <br /> Fri 3 Nov<br /> <a href="http://www.unitytheatreliverpool.co.uk/whats-on/vaudevillians.html">Book Now</a></p> <p><strong>Pavilion Arts Centre, Buxton</strong><br /> Sat 4 Nov <br /> <a href="https://buxtonoperahouse.org.uk/event/the-vaudevillians-jinkx-monsoon-and-major-scales">Book Now</a></p> <p><strong>Gatehouse,Stafford</strong><br /> Sun 5 Nov <br /> <a href="https://www.staffordgatehousetheatre.co.uk/en-GB/shows/the%20vaudevillians-%20jinx%20monsoon%20-%20major%20scales/info">Book Now</a></p> <p><strong>Gala Theatre, Durham</strong><br /> Mon 6 Nov <br /> <a href="https://www.galadurham.co.uk/galapost/the-vaudevillians-jinkx-monsoon-major-scales/">Book Now</a></p> <p><strong>Northern Stage, Newcastle</strong><br /> Tue 7 Nov<br /> <a href="https://www.northernstage.co.uk/whats-on/44444?spektrix_bounce=true">Book Now</a></p> <p><strong>Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough</strong><br /> Wed 8 Nov <br /> <a href="https://www.sjt.uk.com/event/395/the_vaudevillians__jinkx_monsoon_&amp;_major_scales">Book Now</a></p> <p><strong>Westlands Entertainment &amp; Conference Centre, Yeovil</strong><br /> Tues 14 Nov <br /> <a href="https://www.westlandsyeovil.co.uk">Book Now</a></p> <p><strong>Northcote Theatre, Exeter</strong><br /> Wed 15 Nov <br /> <a href="https://exeternorthcott.co.uk/calendar/the-vaudevillians-jinkx-monsoon-major-scales/o.uk">Book Now</a></p> <p><strong>Sherman Theatre, Cardiff</strong> <br /> Thurs 16 Nov <br /> <a href="http://http://www.shermantheatre.co.uk/performance/theatre/the-vaudevillians/">Book Now</a></p> <p><strong>Komedia, Bath</strong><br /> Fri 17 Nov <br /> <a href="https://www.komedia.co.uk/bath/cabaret/jinkx-monsoon-major-scales-vaudevillians/">Book Now</a></p> <p><strong>Junction, Cambridge</strong><br /> Tues 21 Nov <br /> <a href="https://www.junction.co.uk/jinkx-monsoon-and-major-scales">Book Now</a></p> <p><strong>Norden Farm Centre for the Arts, Maidenhead</strong><br /> Thurs 23 Nov <br /> <a href="https://norden.farm/events/jinkx-monsoon-major-scales-the-vaudevillians">Book Now</a></p> <p><strong>Y Theatre, Leicester</strong><br /> Sat 25 Nov <br /> <a href="https://tickets.leicesterymca.co.uk/en-GB/shows/the%20vaudevillians-%20jinkx%20monsoon%20-%20major%20scales/info">Book Now</a></p> <p><strong>Colchester Arts Centre</strong><br /> Tues 28 Nov <br /> <a href="http://www.colchesterartscentre.com/events/comedy/the-vaudevillians-jinkx-monsoon-major-scales-/">Book Now</a></p> <p><strong>The Old Market, Brighton</strong><br /> Thurs 30 Nov &#8211; Fri 1 Dec <br /> <a href="http://theoldmarket.com/shows/the-vaudevillians-jinkx-monsoon-major-scales/">Book Now</a></p> <p><strong>The Glee Club, Nottingham</strong> <br /> Tues 5 Dec <br /> <a href="https://www.glee.co.uk/performer/the-vaudevillians-jinkx-monsoon-major-scales/">Book Now</a></p> <p><strong>Contact Theatre, Manchester</strong> <br /> Thurs 7 &#8211; Sat 9 Dec <br /> <a href="http://contactmcr.com/whats-on/73492-the-vaudevillians-jinkx-monsoon-major-scales/">Book Now</a></p> ]]>
