Edinburgh Comedy Award-winner Jordan Brookes is in town for A Lovely Time, Sara Barron headlines XS Malarkey and Lloyd Griffiths leads an Impossible comedy night.

Sara Barron at XS Malarkey | Tue 30 Nov | 7.30pm | £6/3

A little bit of everything at this week’s XS Malarkey as American-born, English-based Sara Barron headlines, with musical sketch from Birmingham duo Good Kids, new blood courtesy of Farah Sharp and freshly-crowned winner of the BBC New Comedy award Anna Thomas. All held together by the steady hand of Toby Hadoke it’s hard to think of a better weekly club night in the country.

Jordan Brookes at A Lovely Time | Sat 4 Dec | 7pm | £14

Fresh off the back of a break-out performance on Sky Max’s The Russell Howard Hour, and still technically holding the Edinburgh Comedy Award from 2019 (there was no festival in 2020 and no awards in 2021), Jordan Brookes brings his cerebral and brilliantly physical comedy stylings to Chapeltown Picture House for A Lovely Time. Support comes from Wheel of Misfortune’s Alison Spittle, the ubiquitous Eryn Tett and regular MC Amy Gledhill.
