Wednesday 21 November: We picked Mitch Benn’s Distraction Club as our ‘best music-themed comedy night‘, but you should also check out Jonny and the Baptists’ Congregation at Leicester Square Theatre. This week’s guests are Bridget Christie, Jay Foreman and the aforementioned Mitch Benn (9.30pm, £8).

Thursday 22 November: We have a soft spot for the loveable rascals in Sheeps, with their smart and silly sketches. See them at Soho Theatre until Saturday, then Thursday-Saturday next week as well (9.45pm, £10-£15).
