Our selection of London’s comedy gigs this week.
Short notice for this one, but there's a free gig at the Camden Head tonight, 5 October, with whimsical, musical Canadian Mae Martin headlining. Joining her are Patrick Turpin, Sarah Campbell and Oscar Jenkyn Jones. 7.30pm, free.
Max & Ivan
Our reaction to Max & Ivan's last show was that it was just "too good for human words". We haven't seen the new one yet but we trust them enough to still recommend their high-paced sketches. At the Soho Theatre 7-12 October, £10-£17.50.
Robin Ince / Josie Long
A couple of opportunities to see possibly the hardest working man in comedy. He's headlining Happy Mondays in New Cross with Joel Dommett, Katherine Ryan and Alistair Green on 7 October, 8pm, £5, and then with Josie Long in a live version of their Utter Shambles podcast. They're at Stratford Circus on 11 and 12 October, 8pm, £14 / £12.
