Monday June 14

LONDON: Jordan Brookes brings I’ve Got Nothing, the creative and freewheeling show that won him the Edinburgh Comedy Award in 2019 to the Soho Theatre all week  ‘with some new bits thrown in’.

LONDON: The hardest-working man in comedy isn’t going to be cowed by something like a pandemic. And this week Jimmy Carr continues his gruelling tour schedule with a week of West End shows at the Palace Theatre, usually home to Harry Potter And The Cursed Child. Tickets

TEDDINGTON: The very English Hal Cruttenden and the very French Marcel Lucont come together at the Anglers beer garden, for two charity shows in aid of the RNLI shows at 6pm and 8.30pm hosted by Viv Groskop.

Wednesday June 16

LONDON: There’s an appealing bill at Good Ship Comedy’s gig at the imposing Royal Victoria Patriotic Building in Wandsworth tonight, including Channel 4 star Rosie Jones, acerbic Fern Brady, delightfully alternative Andrew O'Neill and amiable Ben Van Der Velde.

Thursday June 17

LONDON:  Stand-up and hip-hop combine in Comedy Bars, a new night at 21Soho spearheaded by Joe Jacobs, himself a comic and rapper. His guests on this first night include  Fin Taylor, Helen Bauer, Junior Booker, Verbz, and Hobbit.

LEEDS: A couple of impishly jovial souls, Andre Vincent and Justin Moorhouse, are counted by the more deadpan style of Don Biswas at the House of Fun comedy club and the Fox & Newt tonight. Tickets.

Friday June 18

BRIGHTON: The Fringe is continuing all week - and beyond. One of the comic highlights of the festival is Alexis Dubus’s insouciant Frenchman, Marcel Lucont, who pours his Gallic scorn over the audience at the Warren tonight, and through to Sunday, with his wonderfully named celebration of ten years in the business, No. Dix.

Saturday June 19

GUILDFORD: Mark Watson’s Alfresco Comedy Club rolls into Stoke Park, with appearances from Jason Manford and Zoe Lyons. Pull up a deckchair for the shows at 5.30pm and 8.30pm, while top-notch nosh comes from some celebrity chefs.

WORCESTER: A fine bill at the Laugh Out Loud Comedy Club at the Swan Theatre tonight includes the always-cheerful Barbara Nice – and the never-cheerful Michael Legge – backed by the experienced talents of Alistair Barrie and Barry Dodds.

LONDON: There’s an ace line-up of pros at 21Soho tonight in the form of  Alfie Brown, Mo Omar, Suzi Ruffell – while all the open spots go to comedians who were refugees or migrants. Comedy with a conscience.
