Preview: The Week Ahead March 3 - 9

David Mills

It's an unusually quiet week for comedy in London, giving fans and critics a chance to save their strength for some big arrivals in a couple of weeks such as Jack Whitehall, Miranda Hart and Russell Howard. The pick of the bunch at the Soho Theatre is Brett Goldstein's autobiographical Contains Scenes of an Adult Nature, which runs from March 3 - 8. I saw it in Edinburgh last summer and reviewed it here.

If you can't get in to the Soho Theatre to see Goldstein David Mills is doing his first full-length show there from March 3 - 5. Mills was a runaway winner of the Hackney New Act of the Year Award a few years back and he has also worked as Scott Capurro's sidekick. In fact he has a similarly waspish style to Capurro, but without the taboo-busting tendencies or the compulsive desire to shock. He also dresses very well indeed, looking more Vegas Rat Pack than Dean Street. Definitely worth a look. 

The other show I want to recommend is theatre, but obviously of interest to comedy fans with taste.  Daniel Kitson's latest piece, Analog.Ue opened at the Lyttelton last week and has had reviews ranging from two stars in the Times to five stars in the Telegraph. I really enjoyed it, but then I always enjoy Kitson. However, I did have a few misgivings about it which I shall be writing about later. But don't listen to my witterings, make up your own minds. Advance tickets are sold out but there are some tickets available on the day if you can get to the National Theatre in time.
