Jake Yapp: One in a Million

Comedian Jake Yapp is perhaps best known for his cameos on 'Charlie Brooker's Weekly Wipe', where his motormouthed, sardonic 90-second summaries of shows like Take Me Out and This Morning are a regular highlight. In this rare live outing, Yapp looks at what makes us unique – or not so unique – through the medium of online personality quizzes. Expect stand-up, sketches and more of those hilariously skewering show summaries.

Jen Kirkman: I Know What I’m Doing & Other Lies I Tell Myself

Critics' choice

Massachusetts-born stand-up Jen Kirkman is back in London with her latest show, after a great run in 2015. Across the Atlantic, Kirkman's known for her appearances on 'Chelsea Lately', and lots of UK fans will know her as a regular contributor to Paul F Tompkins's podcast 'The Pod F Tompkast'. She's an ace stand-up, meandering her way through sharp stories and updates on her life (often talking about being divorced and childless) with plenty of dry wit.

Just for Laughs

In the 33 years since the first Just for Laughs in Montreal, the comedy festival has become an international institution, with spin-off events from Chicago to Sydney. Now it's coming to London. The line-up mixes big names with street performers, magicians and art. Highlights include gigs by Jim Jefferies, Piff the Magic Dragon, Gina Yashere and Hyprov, a curious mix of improv and hypnosis with 'Whose Line is it Anyway?' star Colin Mochrie.
