AWAY FROM THE successful TV improvisation show Whose Line is it Anyway? Greg Proops (right) grabs the limelight and embarks upon a UK tour this spring. The smug American unleashes his sharp quick wit in his show He's One Fine Bitch where, true to form, he spouts political incorrectness like it's going out of fashion. Tickets are selling fast.

IN A SPECTACULAR display of drama and pounding music The Drummers of Burundi come to the UK as part of an international tour. They spirit about the stage in synchronised tribal style, expressing their rhythmic message on hollow log drums. The ritual, hailed as a national symbol of Burundi's musical tradition, is inspiring for audiences of all cultures.
