Anxious Kat

The week's comedy on demand

This week’s best comedy shows on demand.

Sad Face

Kat Sadler, a blogger and illustrator, regularly posts online about her awkward romantic encounters and anxieties about being a young woman, as well as being a stand-up who is performing at the Edinburgh Fringe next month.

It also stars Angela Barnes, as Kat's mum, alongside

Eric, Kat and Joe: Gig Together, Die Alone – which she is performing with Eric Rushton and Joe Bowley – is on at Black Market daily at 8.35pm during the Fringe.

Live At The BBC

Ivo Graham isn’t the biggest name to have recorded a half-hour iPlayer special, but it’s a canny booking, as his star is slowly but surely on the ascendant. In his show, released on Thursday, the charmingly awkward, self-aware posh-boy comic talks about his life as a travelling comic – with encylopaedic knowledge of train services – as well as his family life.

Irish Micks and Legends

Aisling Bea and Yasmine Akram’s peculiar storytelling show, offering up some surreal stories from their Irish ancestors, was nominated for a Chortle Award when it was first released in 2013. Now this charming oddity is back on iPlayer, thanks to a Radio 4 Extra repeat. Three of the four 15-minute episodes are online now, with the final one due to drop tomorrow.
