    Cheap at £10: The Saturday Night Show

    Stand-up on a Saturday? It’ll cost ya. The West End clubs charge £15, £20, even £25 entry. But just a few stops away in King’s Cross The Invisible Dot offers some of the funniest, most innovative line-ups on a Saturday, and it’ll only cost you a tenner. Low-key sketch trio Sheeps and downbeat Norwegian Daniel Simonsen both feature this month.

    The Invisible Dot Ltd, Sat Jan 11, 
18 and 25.

    Cheaper at £8: Knock2Bag

    If you book in advance, £8 gets you entry Knock2Bag’s east London gig (or it’s £12 on the door), which always features incredible bills. But over at K2B’s Shepherd’s Bush branch, every ticket’s eight quid, and this month’s humdinger of a line-up includes Radio 4 star Bridget Christie and ‘Live at the Apollo’ star Romesh Ranganathan.

    Bar FM, Jan 22, Rich Mix, Jan 25.

  • Really cheap at £6: Always Be Comedy

    What can six quid buy you? Popcorn at the cinema? A pint and a half (if you’re lucky)? A quarter day’s rent? You’d be wiser to spend your £6 on Always Be Comedy (apart from rent, actually – probably best you pay that). You can see magical maestro Pete Firman on Thursday January 9 and ‘Mock the Week’ star Holly Walsh on January 23.

    The Tommyfield, Jan 9 and 23.

    Super cheap at £3: New Material Flash Mob

    Sara Pascoe – off of the telly, from ‘Twenty Twelve’ and ‘QI’ – hosts and runs this monthly night, giving ace circuit talents a platform 
to test out fresh new gags.

    The Camden Head NW1, Jan 20.

  • Ridiculously cheap at £2: Crying Duck

    We assume the duck is crying with laughter. Surely it’s not upset about parting with only two shiny pound coins? Not when Canadian charmer Mae Martin and rising star Pierre Novellie are on the bill. Every gig at the Duck mixes circuit pros with talented newbies, so it’s a guaranteed win.

    Canal 125, Jan 13.

  • As cheap as you’ll get it at £0: The Foundry Tickler Comedy Night

    Free, you say? Can’t say fairer than that! There’s not even a plea for donations at the Foundry Tickler, and it offers unbelievably good line-ups. Headliners in January include Nick Helm (whose sitcom ‘Uncle’ airs soon) and double Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy 
Award nominee James Acaster. Now you really have no excuse.

    The Foundry, Mon Jan 13, 
Jan 20 and Jan 27.
