London has a conspicuous lack of enterprises that mix food with comedy, unless you count Ainsley Harriott, in which case you might want to menopause and reconsider your idea of humour. Bringing you legitimate amusement with your amuse-bouche: A Dorians Dinner.
From award-winning comedy duo The Marvellous Dorians, whose double act kicked off in pubs simply "trying to get girls", this two-day pop-up will see them create the capital's first comedy supperclub, putting on two shows/meals in Exmouth Market's church hall, where you can happily add to your own mass. Ha-ha details are being kept under wraps, but you can expect "spontaneous interaction between restaurateurs and diners", as well as staged cabaret acts, all commingled with "the pretense of incompetence", thus showing that dining establishments can learn a thing or two from Garfunkels. Luckily not making a joke out of the food, they've teamed up with a chef fresh from designing menus for the royal palaces, who'll be whipping up a feast of vanilla-soused mackerel & Jersey royals w/quails-egg starters; seared corn-fed chicken slathered in foie gras-butter mains; desserts like chilli & lime cheesecake w/ Champagne jewels, and amouse-bouche that includes olive oil turned into a herb-infused ice cube -- so, Ice Cube.
The booze list isn't finalized yet, but you can apparently expect lashings of "beer, wine, and cider" to enhance the merriment, so be prepared for an annoyingly jocular fellow to tell you "ready, steady, drink!"
