  1. RVT

    “Sunday afternoons at the RVT have been legendary for years and still great fun. Worthwhile to check out some other nights too for an interesting range of shows. Saw the Lipsinkers here on my recent visit to London (October 2013) and they were hilarious, but he crowd was rather small for a Friday night - suspect that the rather steep entrance fee does not help.“
