THE BEST OF THE REST
The Year of the Clown continues with the appearance of Derevo at the Hackney Empire, a venue with a long history in the field, having played host in the past to Charlie Chaplin, WC Fields and Laurel and Hardy. This cultish troupe of clowns, who have performed to acclaim at the Edinburgh Festival and the London International Mime Festival, return with their precisely choreographed show, Once.
Hackney Empire, London E8 (0181-985 2424) Tue to 9 May
Nestor and Gee
Eddie Nestor and Robbie Gee have appeared in things as varied as Dempsey and Makepeace and Desmond's. These two strong performers were also prime movers behind BBC2's black sketch show, The Real McCoy, and Airport on Radio 4. They now join forces to introduce a bill featuring the winner of the 1998 Comedy Store National Hooch Award, Jocelyn Jee, Toju and Maria Wolf.
