Never far away from a killer one-liner it’s easy to see why he is in such high demand as a writer.” The Basis Magazine
Old Jewish Jokes’ tells the story of a modern Jewish comedian invited to perform at a synagogue benefit function, but upon arrival at the venue for the show, he is given a shopping list of subjects he mustn’t joke about.
In Old Jewish Jokes’ we enjoy the predicament of an ethnic comedian being censored by his own community. Its a fun, revealing and truthful story which also provides an excellent opportunity to hear once again some of the world’s favourite old Jewish Jokes.
A new series of stand-up shows from the people behind critically acclaimed The Rat Pack stand-up comedy. We present the best comedians in distinct and inspiring shows at one of London’s best comedy venues, the Camden Comedy Club.

‘Classy stand-up show. Laid-back, cheesy, joyful fun and a wonderfully friendly vibe’ Time Out

The Nearly Ready/ Emergency Rewrite Preview Special
With just ten days till the Edinburgh Fringe starts, these two dimwits scramble desperately to make sense of all their hard work of the last eight months.
MICHAEL LEGGE: JERK
An afternoon’s light entertainment with Michael Legge on the harpsichord. Sixty minutes of harpsichord classics including Bach’s Minuet in G Major, Rachmaninoff’s Suite No 5 and Shout Out To My Ex by Little Mix, all performed by Michael himself. That’s if he’s learned how to play it by August. If not, he’ll just be screaming about how awful his life is and you are. The grumpy dude from Do The Right Thing is back to ask the question: Why aren’t people more ashamed of themselves? Answer him! ‘First class’ (Guardian).
CAROLINE MABEY: QUETZALS
Caroline’s memory isn’t what it once was. Or so she assumes. Join her as she desperately tries to memorise the 103 allowable two-letter Scrabble words, in this joyful, addled meander through self-help, holistic dance and learning to love the disappointment of truly being yourself.
‘A mischievous, kooky talent’ (Time Out). ‘Slightly deranged offspring of Vic Reeves, Harry Hill and Floella Benjamin’ (Evening Standard). ‘No-one has made us laugh as much at this Fringe’ (Skinny).
