June and July are exciting times for comedy, especially in London, as so many talented people are getting their shows ready to take to Edinburgh in August. Most comedy clubs put on two hour long previews during this time. We are different. Instead of two hour long shows, from the 11th of June, we're having three 35-45 minute previews per night in June and July: long enough for a comedian to try their show material out and long enough to give you a great taste. And what acts!
