Jayde Adams: Serious Black Jumper

Jayde Adams's 2019 Edinburgh show, The Ballad Of Kylie Jenner's Old Face, lands on Amazon Prime, albeit with a new title.

In this special, the Bristolian stand-up abandons her usual flamboyant stage outfits under the realisation that if you want to be a 'successful independent woman person' you better have something to say and you better be wearing the feminist wardrobe staple; the Serious Black Jumper™.

Jim Smith: Live From Perth

This stand-up special from farmer turned comedian Jim Smith aired on BBC Scotland on New Year's Eve. This show, the last on his tour, was recorded in front of a packed home crowd. Watch on iPlayer

A Year In The Life Of A Year

Rhys Thomas returns with his latest spoof end-of-year review show, mashing up film and TV highlights of the past 12 months, from Chernobyl to the election and The Crown to Radiator Bleeding with Christopher Eccleston on Channel 5. It aired on BBC Two late on New Year's Day, and is now available on iPlayer.

The New Year International Comedy

Originally made for the World Service, this 50-minute stand-up show features comedians from around the world (although most are conveniently located in London).

Malawi's Daliso Chaponda hosts American Janine Harouni; German-Iranian Enissa Amani; Malaysian Nigel Ng; Australian Brodi Snook; Eshaan Akbar, a Briton of Pakistani and Bangladeshi ancestry, and British Kenya Masud Milas.

Listen on BBC Sounds.

The Hustle

It didn't get the best of reviews on its release last year, but Chris Addison's directorial feature-film debut has just landed on Netflix. A reworking of the Dirty Rotten Scoundrels idea, the crime caper comedy stars Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson as two con artists – one high-class, one low –  who join forces to try to swindle a billionaire's fortune.
