3/6Really 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.
5/6Ridiculously 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.

6/6As 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.
