2013 Edinburgh Preview ShowsThe subterranean juggernaut comedy venue in the West End has a comprehensive Edinburgh Preview selection of events including the latest from Iranian stand-up and award-winning star of The Infidel, Omid Djalili (five shows from 5th to 20th July). The brilliantly dour don of deadpan anti-comedy Edward Aczel previews his new hour of uncomfortable ribaldry (with emphasis on the bald), Lives in a Meaningless Shed (Saturday 22nd July), while sleight-of-hand supremo Alan Hudson stuns the audience with Magician or Superhero (Wednesday 19th June & Thursday 11th July). More mirth comes from youngster Matt Richardson's hotly anticipated debut solo show Hometown Hero (Saturday 22nd June), pithy Welsh gagsmith Lloyd Langford with his latest, Galoot (Wednesday 26th June) and the smart and political John Gordillo with Cheap Shots at the Defenceless (Monday 1st July & Monday 8th July). Other Edinburgh preview shows include Max and Ivan, Ivo Graham, Croft & Pearce, Simon Evans, Paco Erhard, Tony Law, Amy Hoggart (as Pattie Brewster), The Pin, Rory & Tim, Gyles Brandreth and Simon Munnery. Tickets cost as little as a fiver. Visit www.leicestersquaretheatre.com for more details.

About Leicester Square Theatre

In 2002 this compact, 350 seater opened with Taboo, Boy George's musical trawl through Thatcher's 80s and his own turbulent career, a production that ran for well over a year. The Leicester Square Theatre seems to have succeeded in carving out a niche for itself amongst the many grand Edwardian playhouses and cavernous auditoriums of London's Theatreland.
