Watch the World's longest running live comedy show

NewsRevue is a satirical sketch and music based comedy production which began in 1979 and is still running at the tiny Canal Café Theatre in Little Venice.

In 2004, the show was awarded the Guiness World Record for the World's Longest Running Live Comedy Show, and as it is still running this record still stands. Sure, it is fairly am-dram but it is updated every week and has, in the past, won numerous awards and starred the likes of Rory Bremner, Michelle Collins, Josie Lawrence & Bill Bailey, so it will hopefully raise a few laughs.

Tickets are £9.50, but you also have to pay a £1.50 membership fee to the theatre. Newsrevue is on stage from Thursday to Saturday at 9.30pm and Sundays at 9pm, 50 weeks of the year. The nearest tubes are Warwick Avenue, Royal Oak and Paddington.

  1. When I came to London in 2000, I thought I must definitely go to a comedy show, as it's London-y thing to do. Nine years later I still haven't quite got round to it... maybe this is my chance!

  2. I'd go with the Comedy Store Players. Funnier than any scripted show I've seen.
