Frank Skinner – Man in a Suit

  • Critics choice

Master West Country comic Frank Skinner already sold out his Soho Theatre and Leicester Square Theatre runs. So now he's back with some extra dates of 'Man in a Suit'. It's his first solo stand-up show for six years (about time, eh, Frank?). You're in safe hands with Skinner. He's low-key, super-sharp and a little bit filthy, and now he's settled down, he's lost some of his laddishness. Read our review of Frank Skinner's 'Man in a Suit'

Tom Stade – Decisions Decisions

The ultra laidback Canadian comic is back on tour, after hugely successful performances on 'Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow' and 'Live at the Apollo'. He's a charming story-teller, with a superbly oddball view of the world.

  1. Leicester Square Theatre 6 Leicester Place, WC2H 7BX

Sam Simmons – Death of a Sails-Man

  • Critics choice

We love this madass Aussie surrealist – he's relentlessly silly. 'Death of a Sails-Man' bagged Sam Simmons his second Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Award nomination at this year's Edinburgh Fringe, and Simmons's show was by far the most out-there on the nominees list. He plays Phil, a muesli salesman lost at sea on a windsurfing board. As the days pass his mind deteriorates and all manner of oddities and hallucinations take place. It’s ridiculously good fun, with Simmons often

Ivo Graham – Bow Ties and Johnnies

  • Critics choice

23-years-old, Eton educated stand-up Ivo Graham is an intelligent, eloquent wit. He's wonderfully self-aware about his lack of life experience. 'Bow Ties and Johnnies' is about growing up – Graham's moved out of his gran's house and is trying to be an adult. It's delightfully witty.

Lou Sanders in Another Great Show Again

  • Critics choice

Sanders's latest show is a chaotic mish-mash of ex-boyfriend stories, talking vagina puppets and bags of flour. But, somehow, she’s mashed them into a pleasingly ludicrous shape. Sanders flips conventional stand-up rules with her blustery, teenage-like delivery: her sharpest jokes are treated as throwaway lines and any groan-worthy gags are bombastically overplayed. She's very funny, too – her overblown sense of self-importance is deliciously silly. Read our review from the

Angel Comedy

  • Free

Stand-up from carefully selected open-mic comics and experienced acts testing new stuff or performing solid-gold sets – all for free (with a voluntary donation at the end, of course). The room gets absolutely rammed, so get down there early if you want to grab a seat. The club's now running seven nights a week. Mondays are improv shows, Tuesday's show features an hour-long solo show or Edinburgh Fringe preview, and Wednesdays and Sundays are new act and new material gigs. To

The Comedy Store

There’s no doubt about it, the Comedy Store is the daddy of all comedy clubs, and what most other gigs strive to be. Seemingly as old as London itself, the club has been instrumental in the growth of alternative comedy, and still to this day hosts stunning shows most nights of the week. At weekends they host conservative stand-up shows, with circuit stalwarts performing their tried-and-tested sets. See below for the latest line-ups. Check out our guide to the Comedy Store.

Robin Williams was a wonderful man and I think whoopiee has glued herself to his image.  his quote:

"I use to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. its not. the worst thing in life is to end up with people that make you feel all alone." quotes Robin Williams; and I think this was about the comedian whoppie: "never pick a fight with an ugly person...they got nothing to lose." There has to be other comedians who can represent Robin Williams life and jokes out there. Every thing about Robin Williams makes money --don't you other comedians want a cut of the pie?  Robin Williams needs other representation other than whoppiee.  She has glued herself to his image long enough and the next generation needs to study this approach and get in on it!
