London Stand Up And Sketch Comedy: 28 August-3 September

Our pick of where to find funny this week

Sunday: It's the last day of the Camden Fringe! *sob* There may be no finer way to say goodbye than with Adams and Rea's one-night-only best-of show (Camden Head, 8pm, £7.50).

Monday: There's not a huge amount to choose from this Bank Holiday Monday, but Kilburn's Good Ship is always reliably excellent. Tonight's line-up is Steve Day, David Whitney, Rhys Jones and Gary Tro (8.30pm, £4 / £5).

Tuesday: Bob Mills, Paul Foot and Matthew Osborn are at the 99 Club in Leicester Square for your entertainment tonight (8.30pm, £8 if you book online, quite a bit more on the door).

Wednesday: The creation of Gregg Turkington, Neil Hamburger is a throat-clearing, failing, one-liners comedian in a bad 70s suit and haircut. He won't be to everyone's taste so before spending at least a tenner on his run at the Soho Theatre (8pm, £10 / £12.50 / £15), take a quick look at him on YouTube.

Thursday: Free and Funny in Angel (at the other Camden Head, the one on Camden Passage - just to confuse everyone) is a place to catch brand new comedians at the start of their career. For no money. Peter Callaghan, Bryan Walsh, Charlie Saffrey, Amy Howerska and Barry Ferns are on the bill this week (8pm).

Friday: Canadian Sharron Matthews comes straight from Edinburgh to the Leicester Square Theatre with her white-trash lounge singer act. Prepare for big songs in the service of destroying cabaret (10pm, £8 / £6).

Saturday: It's the Headliners Comedy Club's 9th birthday - and they've got quite a line-up for a wee club in Chiswick. Milton Jones, Pete Firman and Steve Gribbin - get your tickets now... (8.30pm, £12).
