David Shrigley

There’ll be more fireworks overhead tonight I’d imagine, the fifth falling on a Monday meaning we get three Guy Fawkes nights in a row.

But ignore all that banging and focus on this little lot instead…


Sunday Sermons Presents… David Shrigley – Vice, The School Of Life (pictured)
His ‘Brain Activity’ expo having widened minds at the Hayward this Summer, alt-illustrationist David Shrigley now moves to preach truth and absurdity as regards humanity’s most vile and evil vices. He says: “You say your lower region is nice but you could be lying. It might be horrible and/or diseased. I will show you the parts of the brain that harbour vice to help you behave less like a monkey”. The lesson begineth here with ticketing info.


Alan Davies – Life Is Pain, Richmond Theatre, 4 Nov
Once a Perrier-winning buzzy stand-up, now author of his own culinary sitcom ‘Whites’ (and a book!), Alan Davies traces past and present personal agonies in his first live routine in over a decade. Life is pain, but it must go on, so go on and view booking details for the show now.

Laugh Out Live Comedy Showcase, Electric Brixton, 4 Nov
Big-name US comic Dave Chappelle (appearing as his ‘Chapelle’s Show’ TV character Ashy Larry/Donnell Rawlings) headlines a pretty electrifying night also co-starring Brit livewires Slim Comedian, Paul, Kevin J, KG Tha Comedian and divisive ‘grimedy’ duo Shadrack And The Mandem. Tickets for this trans-Atlantic face-off here.


The London Improvisers’ Orchestra, Cafe Oto, 4 Nov
London’s premier off-sheet orchestra pools every note of its big band spontaneity for a once-monthly concert at Dalston’s Cafe Oto, as LMO musicians collaborate via a series of secret signs in a demo of starling prowess. Info here.
