Russell Kane's a former Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Award-winner, 'Live at the Electric' star and all-round talented stand-up. He's on top form at the moment – his trademark puppyish energy is still intact but toned down a little, and it now comes with a new-found relaxed confidence. He's playing these Leicester Square Theatre dates as part of a new UK tour.

Missed out on the Edinburgh Fringe? No problem. You can experience practically every single comic* from this year's festival in just eight or so hours at this one-day mini-fest. The huge line-up will be revealed on the day, but past acts include Al Murray, Daniel Kitson, Bridget Christie and Sara Pascoe. It's all organised by comic Michael Legge, and proceeds go to MIND, the mental health charity. *Rough estimate.
