Barking Tales | Joshua Brooks | Wed 2 Sep | 7.30pm | £5
Harriet Dyer’s comedy night to raise awareness of mental health problems returns to Joshua Brooks with another stellar line up. Fresh of the back of a month at the Edinburgh Fringe with his highly acclaimed show ‘My Girls’ Jim Smallman arrives to tell uplifting tales of woe. A night for open conversation on the difficulties of depression within the preforming arts and further afield Barking Tales is a safe space to have a damn good laugh.

SOS TV Live | 3 Minute Theatre | Fri 4 Sep | 7.30pm | £5
Welcoming in the weary warriors of the Fringe, Manchester’s alternative cabaret and part time TV channel SOS opens up the Three Minute Theatre on the ground floor of Affleck’s for another weird installment. Filmed sketches, interviews with the devil and a rakish host in Randolph Tempest SOS is a playground for the surreal circuit in the city and well worth a ganders if you like your comedy buttered on the other side.

Adam Buxton | Gorilla | Sat 5 Sep | 7pm | £14/12
Comedy lovers Group Therapy have had a great three years, perhaps typified in the last 12 months when they have consistently topped themselves which each monthly outing culminating in the amazing coup of David Cross in August. To celebrate their third birthday they have Adam Buxton, Gary Delaney and regular MC Danny McLoughlin. A splendid line up that has recently added star of the Fringe Spencer Jones, somehow not nominated but certainly the people’s champ of Edinburgh 2015.
