Glasgow International Showcase

WHAT: Stand-up comedians are fine-tuning their material ahead of the Glasgow International Comedy Festival, which begins in March. But why wait when you can see them go through their paces in Leicester Square?

WHEN: January 25.

DO IT BECAUSE: The sheer variety of stand-up comedy is one of the selling points of London nightlife and this particular event combines a bunch of festival-standard comedians, including Arthur Smith, under one roof. Something for everyone.
