The world's longest running live comedy show!
A fast-moving mix of sketches and songs, NewsRevue propels you through the world's news and current events at breakneck pace - all-kicking, idol-burning comedy, updated every week by a crack team of writers.
Canal Cafe Theatre is delighted to launch a new in-house cabaret extravaganza featuring veritable showstoppers from ill-starred musicals that flopped on Broadway and/or the West End on their maiden voyage! (Yes, Titanic may well be included…) The creative team behind Guinness World Record-breaking NewsRevue have cast the show from their talented pool of quadruple threats: singer, dancer, actor, and comedian. Devised, directed and choreographed by musical theatre aficionado Tim McArthur (The Curtain Up Show, The Frogs, Jermyn Street Theatre) and with maestro Aaron Clingham on the keys, Cream is a wonderland of hidden gems that promises to entertain!

Peepshow is the story of seven little lives in one large city… Tantalisingly revealing flashes of life from a tower block, Peepshow takes a look behind the curtain into a high rise of lost souls.
