Reasons to be cheerful, one, two, three...

A cup-pa comedy from Goldsmith
A cup-pa comedy from Goldsmith

COMEDY matter is breaking out all over this week, with three chances to get your funnies.

Tonight, The Comedy Club at City Limits in Xscape welcomes some firm familiars.

John Ryan is hosting, Martin Coyote follows, and as for the charismatically-challenged uncle and mute nephew co-operative that is the Raymond and Mr Timpkins Revue?

Organisers say that it has to be seen to be believed: ‘Combining inimitable acoustic guitar and xylophone driven rock anthems with a plethora of prop-assisted material and some serial wordplay that would put Stephen Fry to shame, it comes together to create a comic masterpiece.’

Tickets are £13 and show time is 8.30pm.

Call MK 295200.

Tomorrow night, The Red Card Comedy Club returns at the Double Tree by Hilton, at the home of MK Dons.

Bennett Aaron has been described as ‘A Welsh Seinfeld’ by the BBC, while Roger D discusses faith, race and why women can’t stop talking. Eh?!

Stuart Goldsmith, left, will put down his mug and cut loose with infectious jokes and anecdotes galore.

Tying everything together, catch John Mann in the role of compere.

Tickets are £13 on the door, £11 in advance.

Call 0845 45 45 045 to book. Show time is 8.45pm.

On Sunday, That Time of the Month returns to The Cannon pub in Newport Pagnell.

Paul Ricketts takes the lead for the rescheduled date, which was originally set to roll in December, before nasty weather snowed on everyone’s parade.

His intelligent humour blends sharp observations with strange tales of ordinary madness.

Want to enjoy the show?

You will enjoy the admission price too – it’s just £2.

Expect plenty of funny business after 7pm.

You can’t say fairer than that.
