IS THE January depression getting to you?

The weather is chilly, your bank acount is bereft and the drudgery is encompassing, right?

Don’t let it bring you down – turn your frown upside down at one of these comedy capers happening around town this week, writes Sammy Jones.

This evening, The Comedy Club at City Limits in Xscape presents funny fella’s Paul B Edwards and headliner Chris McCausland, with Kevin Shepherd hosting.

Tickets are £12.95 and you’ll get a basket meal included in that price.

Doors open at 7.30pm, call MK 295200 to book.

The Jongleurs Comedy brand returns to Oceana this Friday and Saturday night, with R David, Chris Henry, Special P and Ron Vaudry taking charge.

Tickets start at £12, doors open at 7pm, and when you’ve had a laugh, go forth and have a dance – you get free access to Oceana afterwards.

Call the ticket line on 08700 111 960.

Tomorrow (Fri) evening also marks the return of the Red Card Comedy Club, the monthly roar at the Doubletree by Hilton, at stadium:mk.

Scramble for tickets and you’ll be rewarded with a set from this chap who is funnier than he looks in this picture, right. It’s George Egg, a man described as ‘a Tommy Cooper for the twenty first century.’

No doubt he’ll fry your brain with his original (not poached) material...enough with the egg puns now, though.

Also on the bill, get comedic portions from Brendan Dempsey and Joseph Wilson, with Simon Bligh keeping things to schedule as MC.

Doors open at 7.30pm and tickets are £11 if you grab them in advance, £13 on the night.

Food will be available on the night too, so sit back, relax, eat and laugh, and let others take the strain of the washing up!

Book on MK 364184.

A couple of weeks back, Miles Jupp took the crown on an episode of Celebrity Mastermind, but on Sunday night he will be back to his humorous best with a date a short distance away in Buckingham.

A familiar face on Mock The Week, Have I Got News for You and Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, he will make Sunday night feel like Friday evening all over again, which can’t be bad, now can it?

Tickets for this session, which is being hosted at the Old Town Hall, are £12.50 a pop.

Get them by calling the Buckingham Tourist Information office on 01280 823020.
