London Stand Up And Sketch Comedy: 2-8 October

Our pick of where to find funny over the next seven days

Sunday: You've probably seen comedy cabaret group Fascinating Aida's "tribute" to low-cost airlines, and they're performing in the flesh at Richmond Theatre (4pm / 7.30pm, £24.50 / £20.50)

Monday: Happy Mondays at the Amersham Arms is always worth checking out, but particularly tonight when they've got Matthew Crosby, Tom Deacon and James Acaster on the bill, plus Holly Walsh MCing (8pm, £6 / £4 in advance, pricier on the door).

Tuesday: Sketch fans should flock to the Leicester Square Theatre for tasters of the venue's Edinburgh season: Sheeps, The Beta Males, Max & Ivan, Jigsaw and this year's Best Newcomer Cariad Lloyd are offering snippets of their stuff (7.30pm, £10).

Wednesday: The After School Club has moved from its old home at the Camden Head to the Green Man by Oxford Circus. Head down there for silly and surreal fun from John-Luke Roberts, Bec Hill, Nat Luurtsema, Tom Bell, Ben Partridge and host Chris Coltrane (8.30pm, £3).

Thursday: Tasmanian Hannah Gadsby dusts down her debut solo show Hannah Gadsby is Wrong and Broken (from back in 2007) for the London Storytelling Festival, at the Leicester Square Theatre (7.30pm, £10 / £7.50).

Friday: Longstanding political ranter and satirist Jeremy Hardy brings his latest tour to the Broadway Theatre in Barking (8pm, £14 / £12).

Saturday: Wil Hodgson and Carey Marx are two excellent reasons to go to the Hampstead Comedy Club tonight, plus the also-excellent-but-less-well-known John Robins (8.30pm, £10 / £8.50).
