Jack Mink

Blending improvisation with mime, humour with tragedy, this show is entirely what you make of it. Mink in Victorian-style garb and clown make-up welcomes you to his space and presents a series of hypothetical situations that on this occasion included Kate Winslet, a grandmother with a tuba and a ride in a hot air balloon. It’s a mesmerising spectacle that is, in parts, touching, melancholic and poetic.

Royal College of Surgeons, 0845 508 8515, until 22 Aug, 10.40pm; 24–29 Aug, 10.40pm, £5.

Jack Mink at World's End

Jack Mink is a bloke, or so he says. I've known him a long time. He says he's a comedian but he's dark. Mixing stand-up, clowning and improvisation, this is his show.
