Francesca Martinez: What the fuck is normal?

Martinez, who describes her cerebral palsy as “wobbly”, tackles prejudice, ignorance and people’s misguided attempts at political correctness in her quest to illustrate just how bizarre society’s notion of normal is.

An essential, intelligent, challenging and, above all, highly moving show.

Marcus Brigstocke: The Brig Society

The broadcaster, comedian and actor lays waste to the all-encompassing, mean-nothing banner of the ‘Big Society’ that PM David Cameron and his cronies want us to nurture, as we go about our business hugging hoodies left, right and centre. Topical, satirical, thought-provoking and very, very funny indeed.

Nov 23 & Dec 12, 8pm, £15

Alan Davies: Life Is Pain

The halfwit to Stephen Fry’s genius in TV’s QI, Alan Davies proves himself anything but in this new show, his first stand-up turn in more than a decade.

Childhood, ageing and the cruder aspects of life all come under scrutiny in this depressingly titled new show from this most perceptive and deceptive of performers.

Nov 4 & 12, 7.30pm & 8pm, £25

Mark Watson: The Information

Write about what you know, that’s the advice, right? The geekish, snappy-chattering Watson took this to heart when someone stole his identity and, swiftly, relieved him of all of his money, too.

He draws on this rather inconvenient and slightly frightening episode for his new show, which considers the information age and our identity, and how the two affect one another.

There are also funny stories, anecdotes and his whimsical way with words, of course.

Jo Brand

The fiery feminist of the Nineties has mellowed somewhat in recent years, embracing motherhood and family life, but her razor-sharp wit has blunted none.

She appears at this 15x15 spoken word series (five speakers, 15mins each) at The Tabernacle in Notting Hill on Nov 19 and then does a full gig in Kingston on Nov 24.

Nov 17 & 24, 6.15pm & 7.30pm, £12+
