London Stand Up And Sketch Comedy: 11-17 November

Where to find funny this week

Sunday: Excellently genial Yorkshireman Tom Wrigglesworth headlines at the Rosendale in Dulwich, with Nish Kumar, Nathaniel Metcalfe and Alex Holland (8pm, £5).

Monday: Enjoy the weird amazingness of Ben Target (pictured) up close and personal in the Camden Head (8pm, free). Also on the bill are sketch group Oyster Eyes, Alastair Roberts (the tall, sarcastic one from Sheeps), Pattie Brewster and MC Mae Martin.

Tuesday: The Real MacGuffins host Skitsophrenia at the Comedy pub off Piccadilly, with master character comedian Colin Hoult plus Max Dowler, Modern Dreams, Penny Dreadful David Reed and Kieran without various Joes, Kieran Hodgson (8pm, £5 / £2.50 online).

Wednesday: Show us someone who doesn’t love Susan Calman and we’ll show you a fool, probably while pointing and laughing. Her 2012 Edinburgh show around her civil marriage is on at the Soho Theatre for the next week and a half (7.45pm, £17.50-£10).

Thursday: Wil Hodgson is doing a rare revival of the show that won him Best Newcomer at Edinburgh in 2004 for the London Storytelling Festival. See it now, because even if you saw it then, you’ll have totally forgotten it (7pm, £10 / £8).

Friday: Another revival of a show not quite as old: Tim Key is performing Masterslut at the Arts Theatre until next Saturday (9.15pm, £18).

Saturday: Head to Putney to see Junior Simpson, Chris Martin and funniest ever German Henning Wehn at the Comedy Tree (8.30pm, £10).
