London Stand Up And Sketch Comedy: 23-29 June

Where to find funny this week

Sunday 23 June: Mike Wilmot, Robin Ince, Suzi Ruffell, Matt Rees and a secret special guest perform at the latest London is Funny night under the sharp eye of MC Tom Webb (7.30pm, £8 / £10).

Monday 24 June: Tim Key's latest work-in-slutgress is available for your delight and feedback at Invisible Dot (10pm, £8).

Tuesday 25 June: Helen Arney curates a night at the Royal Institution looking at small science: the literally small, but also the overlooked. Guests include Mat Ricardo, Helen Keen, Jonny Berliner and Suze Kundu (7pm, £10 / £7).

Wednesday 26 June: Sketch double act The Pin preview their next show at the Pleasance before taking it up to Edinburgh (8pm, £5).

Thursday 27 June: Tangents, wordplay, extreme cleverness, goth vegan tranvestism and buzzing from Andrew O'Neill (pictured) and his 2012 Edinburgh show (in other words: no preview-style notes and unfunny bits) at Jackson's Lane. There's something infectiously joyful about what this guy does and we can't recommend him highly enough (8pm, £10).

Friday 28 June: The Boy with Tape on his Face is doing a long run at Udderbelly on the South Bank, so there should be at least one day you can catch the mute merrymaker (7pm, £15.50).

Saturday 29 June: Two Edinburgh previews, from Sara Pascoe and Pat Cahill, at Crack Comedy in Waterloo tonight (8.30pm, £11 / £7).
