London Stand Up And Sketch Comedy 27 November-3 December

Where to find funny next week

Sunday: Zoe Lyons, Jen Brister and Suzi Ruffell bring their tour to the Leicester Square Theatre (8.15pm, £15), featuring bits from each of their solo shows.

Monday: This really isn't one to miss: Isy Suttie, Doc Brown and Lloyd Langford play Happy Mondays, at the Amersham Arms in New Cross (7.30pm, advance tickets less than a fiver). Seriously: all these brilliant people off the telly, in a pub in New Cross.

Tuesday: It's been almost impossible to choose just one gig from everything happening tonight. Eventually we plumped for House of Mirth at the Betsey Trotwood (8pm, £5), with Miles Jupp - just excellent on last night's Have I Got News For You - Hannah Gadsby, Danielle Ward and hosted as usual by Sara Pascoe and Jess Fostekew.

Wednesday: Time to remind you of what's pretty much become an institution: Lewis Schaffer's Free Until Famous comedy shows at The Source Below (8pm, free, obviously). This is the last one for a while so head down to Piccadilly Circus.

Thursday: Acclaimed Irish improv hip-hop duo Abandoman headline at Kings Place tonight (8pm, £12.50 / £9.50), alongside sketch group The Beta Males, Jay Foreman and McNeil and Pamphilon.

Friday: Matt and Stu have travelled here from the future, to warn us about the terrible dangers lying in wait for us. Why they're choosing to do this at the Hen and Chickens (9.30pm, £5) rather than, say, trying to get an audience with President Obama, only can they explain. Matthew Crosby joins tonight's Apocalypso show.

Saturday: It's only Daniel bloody Kitson MCing Live at the Chapel (7.30pm, £16), with the Pajama Men, Alex Horne, Nick Helm and Marcel Lucont providing the bits in between.
