London Stand Up And Sketch Comedy: 30 September-6 October

Where to find funny this week

Sunday: Today you can pick from a day long festival at The Phoenix supporting charity KIDS, with sets from Richard Herring, Catie Wilkins, Michael Legge, Sarah Bennetto, Dan Tetsell, Danielle Ward, Helen Arney and more (2pm, £20) or a gig in the pitch black at Soho Theatre from Seann Walsh, Abandoman, Phil Nichol and Chris McCausland (7.30pm, £10).

Monday: Milton Jones headlines Happy Mondays in New Cross, plus Joel Dommett, John Robbins and host Holly Walsh (8pm, £5).

Tuesday: We do love Marcel Lucont's laconic French stereotypes (pictured), and urge you to head to Chiswick's Flyover Comedy Club at The Pilot. Also on the bill are James Mason, Dan Adams and Laura McClenaghan (8.30pm, £5 / £3).

Wednesday: Knock2Bag have a spectacular line-up for Bar Fm in Shepherd's Bush: Tony Law (currently sold out at the Soho Theatre), Josh Widdicombe (last seen on Adam Hills's The Last Leg), sketch group Oyster Eyes, Sara Pascoe, Ed Gamble, Chris Kendall and Mark Cooper Jones (7.30pm, £8).

Thursday: Rosie Wilby hosts Femmes by the Thames at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern, with acts Joanna Neary, Ada Campe, Bunnie Morethan, Jessica Pidsley and headlined by the acerbic Zoe Lyons (7pm, £6.50).

Friday: Marek Larwood of We Are Klang sketch fame brings his solo stand-up show to the Pleasance for a three-night run (8pm, £8).

Saturday: Pick from a couple of shows at the Soho Theatre: much running around and audience participation from New Art Club (9.15pm, £15 / £12.50) or Rob Delaney (or @robdelaney as you might know him) making his UK debut (9.45pm, £20 / £17.50).
