London Stand Up And Sketch Comedy: 23-29 September

Where to find funny this week

Sunday: If you've never seen Doc Brown in action you should remedy that at the first opportunity, and there's a pretty good opportunity in Greenwich at Sunday Special. A rapper who's funny and clever, rather than a 'comedy rapper', he's alongside Elis James, Ed Gamble and, er, Lee Nelson (7.30pm, £6 / £4).

Monday: Alternative Comedy Memorial Society brings its leftfield laughs to the Soho Theatre (8pm, £12.30 / £8). Line-up is Holly Burn, Deborah Frances-White, Matthew Kelly (not that Matthew Kelly), Howard Read, Claudia O'Doherty, Tony Law, Steve Pretty, Nadia Kamil, Tom Bell, Alexis Dubus, Bridget Christie, Thom Tuck and John-Luke Roberts.

Tuesday: Still at the Soho Theatre, Amused Moose start three nights of showcase gigs. Tonight it's Jim Campbell's debut solo show plus guests Richard Todd, Funmbi and Clint Edwards (7.30pm, £8.50 / £7) and maths fun with Yianni (9.15pm, £8.50 / £7). You can catch Alistair Barrie, Marcel Lucont (do) and Laurence Clark on Wednesday and Thursday.

Wednesday: David O'Doherty comes to the end of three nights at the Invisible Dot with his show about Ireland's sixth or seventh Antarctic explorer Rory Sheridan (very precise 7.35pm, £10).

Thursday: Helen Arney's beautiful, funny, insightful and occasionally poignant songs about science and geekery are a must-see at the Soho Theatre today and tomorrow Wednesday (9pm, £10).

Friday: Daniel Kitson MCs a fundraiser at Kings Place for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research, with spots from Jonny Sweet and Nick Mohammed plus others yet to be announced (7.30pm, £15.50).

Saturday: Joe Lycett and his camp observational gags are at the 99 Club (8.30pm, £15 online). Also on are Sol Bernstein and Prince Abdi.
