Weekend: Great comedy coming to you…

Pierre Novellie

Niche laughs with award-winning stand-up Pierre (pictured above) who live streams gaming with on-the-money improv. His themed shows Medieval Monday, Warzone Wednesday and Thinking Thursday see him play his way through games including Call Of Duty. Mon, Wed and Thu, twitch.tv

Battersea Arts Centre

London’s Battersea Arts Centre is running a series of socially distanced open-air gigs in their courtyard space. Tonight sees a headline performance from Simon Brodkin (above), best known for his high-profile pranks and his work as alter ego Lee Nelson, the likes of Paul Chowdhry, Phil Wang, Al Murray and Russell Howard to follow. Until August 9, bac.org.uk

Comics Solve Problems

With stand-up gigs cancelled, comedians Steve N Allen, a regular on BBC2’s Mash Report, and Erich McElroy, seen on Radio 4’s Moral Maze, started YouTube show Comics In Quarantine. Now re-titled Comics Solve Problems, the improv format sees the pair trying to help viewers sort out personal issues and moral dilemmas. Tuesdays and Thursdays at 9pm, youtube.com

Romesh Ranganathan

Stand-up Romesh Ranganathan has been keeping himself busy over lockdown — with his BBC TV shows and his own podcast series, Hip Hop Saved My Life — but fans can once again catch him live on his rescheduled Cynic’s Mixtape tour. It all kicks off in Bristol in January 2021 and takes in an extended stint at Hammersmith’s Apollo. romeshranganathan.co.uk
