If you don't know who Paul Merton is then you must be living on the planet Mars (in which case, how are you reading this?). He's been a team captain on Have I Got News For You for about a billion years, and done stints on Room 101 and Radio 4's Just a Minute. And do you remember when he was on Whose Line Is It Anyway? That was the best program on TV! (Why don't they bring that back again?)

His best work is probably still done on stage with the Comedy Store Players, where he can let loose his flights of fancy. He doesn't really do punchlines, he's more of an absurdist, with a surreal kind of humour... daft stuff, silly stuff.

The Comedy Store Players usually improvise their entire show. They make up funny sketches and comedy dramas on the spot. You never know what you're going to get with these guys because they don't usually have a clue either!

Their line-up changes all the time, but other big-name comedians who regularly appear with them include Josie Lawrence, Marcus Brigstocke and Phill Jupitus. The most regular performers are Andy Smart, Neil Mullarkey, Lee Simpson and Richard Vranch (that guy who used to play the piano on Whose Line Is It Anyway).

You can find the Comedy Store near Leicester Square. There are plenty of pubs around Leicester Square if you want to have a drink before the show. Or maybe you'd prefer a restaurant near Leicester Square instead.
