Preview: The Week Ahead July 15 - 22 & Daniel Kitson News

The Soho Theatre's comedy programming policy has been consistently high in recent years but in the last couple of months they've blotted their impeccable track record with a few disappointing – to me, anyway – American visitors. Judah Friedlander failed to lived up to the hype and college humour duo Jake & Amir just made me feel old with their blend of juvenile smut and puerile banter. But the best venue(s) in London gets back on track this week with two surefire bets both opening on Monday.

The Week Ahead: July 8 - 14

There is no Pappy's show in Edinburgh this summer – sob – but that doesn't mean they will be keeping a low profile, oh no. Their eagerly anticipated BBC3 sitcom Badults starts later this month and BTJ will be running a review shortly. But if you still need your live fix of Tom, Ben and Matthew they are doing a one-off podcast recording of Pappy's Flatshare Slamdown at the Soho Theatre tonight.

Review: Cat Laughs Festival, Kilkenny, Part 2

One of the funny things about this year's festival was that one of the highlights was not a stand-up gig at all in the conventional sense. The Mitch Hedberg Tribute Show paid homage to the cult comedian who died, aged 37, in 2005. I don't think Hedberg ever played London or Edinburgh but I was lucky enough to see him in Kilkenny in 1999. In was in Kytelers Bar I think, just after Phill Jupitus had done a routine about spiders.
