Comedy Festivals ThisWeek In London

Three To See on 23 Aug: Jarlath Regan – Organ Freeman, We Should Know Better, Joe Jacobs – Cracker

And today’s ThisWeek-tipped, LDN-based events are…

Jarlath Regan – Organ Freeman | Soho Theatre | 23-25 Aug
I think we have probably tipped performances of this show before, and that’s a) because Jarlath Regan is generally fabulous, but also b) because this particular show has won a lot of love and acclaim. The listing describes this run as “three very special, final performances” so if that’s the case, you should make sure not to miss it if at all possible. So, haste ye this way to get your tickets sorted.

We Should Know Better | Camden Comedy Club | 20-23 Aug
And here’s something else not to miss: all the shows you can still see before Camden Fringe comes to its sad, yet inevitable, and somehow hopeful end this weekend. Today, because we’re doing quite a few tips from the festival in these last few days, we’ve got two comedy options for you. Starting with this, from Sikisa (BBC New Comedian 2017 finalist) and Adrian (who was cut out of the TV show The Night Manager). Last night tonight! See this page here.

Joe Jacobs – Cracker | Aces & Eights | 23-24 Aug
I’ve only just noticed that it’s absolutely all comedy today, but that is not a bad thing. Our final tip for the day is a set from comedian/rapper Joe Jacobs, who you may be well aware of via his live, TV and radio appearances. If you haven’t, then take it from us and all the critics who say that he’s brilliant, that he is actually, er, brilliant, and that you should head this way to find out more.
