Sean McLoughlin | The Bread Shed | Tue 20 Mar | 7.30pm | £5/3
XS Malarkey continue their hot streak of creating a space for the best up and coming comedians in the country with star of Viceland’s ‘Brexit Stage Left’ Sean McLoughlin. Acerbic, self effacing and disgustingly eloquent McLoughlin has made a name of for himself as a hot young thing, though he would no doubt baulk at such an addage. If you like your comedy smart, angry and with something to say then seek him out this Tuesday at XS.

The Delightful Sausage | The Old Monkey | Wed 21 Mar | 7.30pm | £6
As they feverishly work on their sophomore Edinburgh show, meat-themed sketch duo The Delightful Sausage are keen to cast their debut hit ‘Cold Hard Cache’ onto the killing floor of the comedy abattoir. Trapdoor Comedy present the last ever showing of this critically acclaimed show that deserves to be seen live (though you can catch it on nextup if you’re a subscriber). Plus Chris Cantrill gets his little beefy nips out at the end which is more than worth the price of admission alone.

Bobby Mair | The Frog & Bucket | Sun 25 Mar | 8pm | £12.50
In the hands of a more sensitive comic the story of a man tracking down his birth family one by one might be a saccharine affair to rival an early episode of ‘Surprise Surprise’ but in the hands of Bobby Mair you can expect anything but ‘feel good’ comedy. Having supported the likes of Bill Burr and Doug Stanhope as well as masterfully trolling Julian Assange, Mair brings his true life tale ‘Loudly Insecure’ to The Frog & Bucket for one night only. With it being a Sunday show too the Frog have graciously lowered the age of entry for those that discovered Mair through his destruction of KSI. Fun for all the family?
