An Irresponsible Fathers Guide to Parenting by Laurence ClarkComedian Laurence Clark starred in BBC1s documentary We Wont Drop the Baby, following his familys journey as they welcomed their second child. The response it received worldwide was at times inspirational and uplifting - at others, derogatory and incredibly personal. Laurences show explores these reactions, and questions his role as a father with cerebral palsy - with the help of his two young sons, who undoubtedly steal the limelight with their charming and innocent view of their parents. Putting the audience in the driver seat, An Irresponsible Fathers Guide to Parenting gives a comic, brutally honest and charming account of what its really like to be a disabled parent.Wickedly funny - HeraldIntelligent and incredibly mischievous - MetroClose to the bone and very funny - Scotsmanan excellent show, jam-packed with laughs and a delight to watch One 4 ReviewUnreserved Seating

After an amazing run of sell out London dates The London African Gospel Choir bring their acclaimed Graceland show to Nell's Jazz and Blues. Thirty years after its release, 17 members of The London African Gospel Choir, backed the LAGC's excellent band, perform their own powerful twist on Paul Simon's 'Graceland' album delivering the Graceland album from start to finish. After coming across a bootleg cassette of South African township music in the early 80s, Paul Simon was totally smitten by the infectious and irresistible rhythms. He travelled to Johannesburg, spending two weeks there, recording with the absolute cream of South African musicians. That epic session, went on to form the basis of Simon's most commercially successful album ever - 'Graceland'. The record became a true global phenomenon, winning Grammys in both 1987 and 88, shifting 5 million copies Stateside and then another 2.5 million copies in the UK alone. The 'Graceland' album spawned the hit singles, 'Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes', 'The Boy in the Bubble' & it's biggest smash - 'You Can Call Me Al.' The richness and harmony of the Choir's rhythmic, evocative and empowering, voices have created an overwhelming musical event, for anyone lucky enough to experience this special performance of Paul Simon's 'Graceland'. The London African Gospel Choir is a collective of African singers, musicians and dancers who focus on African gospel music. They have performed to great acclaim with the likes of Emeli Sande, Mumford and Sons and, Annie Lennox, recorded with Idris Elba, Johnny Legend and others and have headlined at venues such as the O2 Arena
