Angie Le Mar

She's left-handed and a Scorpio, too

Angie Le Mar's London

The UK's first ever black female stand-up combines comedy with acting, playwriting and broadcasting. Here she continues our series on London locations by revealing some of her favourite places and spaces...



I have fond memories as it's where I first stepped onto the stage when I was 10 years old. I continue going to workshops there and have joined different groups for years to come.

Angie's choice... for bags



I love coming here to support the new designers. You can pick up some really original bags, so wherever you go, there will be no one else with the exact same bag. Very important!

(Located near the Thames and Greenwich Pier. Thurs: collectibles and antiques, Fri: collectibles, antiques, arts and crafts, Sat/Sun and Bank Holidays: arts and crafts and food court)



Their Thai food is lovely, but what I do love about the place is the setting, the beautiful decor and the service is great, too. Do try their Mango and sticky rice.

Eat, drink, relax and buy a book, too



The fact that you can be buying books late in the evening really appeals to me. You can relax and read and time flies by when you're in there. It's very bright and welcoming.

Going Out


It's now my favourite theatre, and not just because they have taken four of my shows, no. It's the team that runs the theatre, right from the top. They're such a supportive team and it reminds me of people who go into the Arts just because they love it.

(291 Mare Street E8/ 020 8985 2424)

Open Space


It's my local park and it's always very clean and relaxing. It's great for long walks and perfect for the children. Who could ask for more?

(Browning Road/ Clay Hill, Enfield)

Angie Le Mar presents her own show on Choice FM, Saturdays 9am - midday. She is currently involved with a school for the performing arts that will open in 2008 in Lewisham, where she grew up.
