Ben Pope | The Bread Shed | Tue 7 May | 7.30pm | £5/3
A rising star on the comedy scene, Ben Pope headlines XS Malarkey for the first time this evening as they continue to promote fresh, young talent you might not usually see at the weekend clubs. Pope has already been heard on BBC Radio 4 and seen on Comedy Central so expect to be seeing a lot more of him but remember you saw him first at XS.

Having been a musician since the age of six, and a comedian for the last twenty years you better believe Duncan Oakley has some stories. A musical comedian then that can carry a tune Oakley is always a treat and The Old Monkey a perfect intimate setting for his troubadour like stylings.

The Great Mirth Run | Tribeca | Sun 12 May | 12.30pm | donations to charity
Lukas Kirkby’s mad dash of comedy brings 10 hours of stand-up, sketch and more to Tribeca with some 90 comedians taking part over the course of the day. All for a good cause Kirkby will be donating all proceeds to Barnardos and it’s much funnier than watching the actual marathon.

Tue 7 May - Sun 12 May
