Ahir Shah headlines a top night at XS Malarkey, Mick Ferry helps The Comedy Store take over Stoller Hall and The Jain Edwards Show has a special guest appearance from Alasdair Beckett-King.

XS Malarkey: Ahir Shah | Tue 15 Mar | 7.30pm | £6/3

Fresh off the back of a rescheduled tour, Ahir Shah makes his way to XS Malarkey battle hardened and ready to take on the headline spot. A pinpoint accurate satirist who has shone on the The Mash Report with his searing takedowns of the government and their ilk, Shah is an important young voice in comedy.

The Jain Edwards Show with Alasdair Beckett-King | Thu 17 Mar | 8pm | £8-10

With only three episodes in the can, The Jain Edwards Show already feels like must-see television. That is of course if it was broadcast anywhere and not just a live multi-media experience of stand-up, interviews and Foxdog Studios as house band. Like no other night in the city, this weekend they further boast a special guest appearance from Alasdair Beckett-King.
