• Abandoman has announced a new improv rap comedy tour. Frontman Rob Broderick has previously been accompanied by musicians, but this time is performing solo, using a necklace of sample pads to trigger the beats and hooks he freestyles over. He will be playing 20 UK and Ireland and cities in October and November. Schedule.

• Comedian, blogger and author Sam Avery is taking his show The Learner Parent out on a UK tour from October until March, inspired by his experiences as a father of Twins. Dates.

• The Thinking Drinkers – aka Ben McFarland and Tom Sandham – have announced an autumn/srping tour of their new show Pub Crawl, in which every audience member tastes five drinks . It's an exploration of history's greatest drinking establishments, whch they say is 'specially pertinent' given the fact that 18 pubs are closing every week. Schedule.
