What must be the best value comedy night in London returns on Tuesday May 29th with headliners sketch sisters Toby, and James Acaster, from off the telly.
Venue is once again the Queen’s Head, 15 Denman Street, right by Piccadilly Circus, with doors at 8pm for an 8.30pm start.
Only £4 (£3 students) in advance, or £5 (£4 students) on the door.
The Daykin sisters fill their dark, deranged sketches with a sibling rivalry of real love, emotion and delusion.
A cult hit at both 2010 and 2011 Edinburgh Fringe Festivals, the duo have completed a run at the Soho Theatre and written and performed for Dick and Dom’s Funny Business and Channel 4 and BBC Comedy Online.
Sarah has also appeared with Simon Bird, Joe Thomas and Jonny Sweet in Channel 4’s Comedy Showcase Chickens, soon to be on Sky.
