The London Comedy Film Festival kicks off a series of hilarious comedy events in the city. Here's a list of places to go to laugh away your January blues...

Decapitated Puppy Comedy Night, St Giles

Dark comedy at rock ‘n’ roll haven The Intrepid Fox, with the controversial Sanderson Jones and New Zealand’s Benjamin Crellin.

Betamax: The Beta Males & Max and Ivan, King's Cross

These two sell-out Edinburgh Fringe shows will have you chortling into your pints. One, featuring the hilarious Beta Males, is based in the world of cops, trains, gentlemen and thieves (plus a former Secretary of State for Transport, who has fallen from grace). In the other comedy thriller, Max and Ivan are a prohibition-era Holmes and Watson in Chicago’s dark underworld.

Comcomedy Live: The Love Pick N Mix Party, Hoxton

A Valentine’s Day special of comedy including funny MC Joel Dommett, Guardian one-to-watch Daniel Simonsen and the unashamed Cariad Lloyd. There’ll also be sweets, which definitely isn’t a bribe.

Tube: Shoreditch High Street

The Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls, Islington

The original New Zealand musical comic duo are back in the UK for the first time in years, with their new show, Untouchable Girls. The twin- sister cultural institution 
–made up of Jools and Lynda Topp – serve up their brand of country-influenced tunes, genius characters and, possibly, some yodelling.  The show tells the at-times- unbelievable story of the ladies’ entertainment history and political activism since they began performing in the early 1980s, and how they helped change New Zealand’s social values.

Fri, Feb 17, 7pm, £25
Union Chapel, Compton Terrace, N1 2UN
unionchapel.org.uk
Tube: Highbury & Islington

The Pajama Men: In the Middle of No One, Charing Cross

Since going down rather well with critics, this duo (above) from New Mexico are making their West End debut – in their pajamas. The stand-up and sketch show is fast-paced and uses few props, leading to some side-splitting mime scenes. They were winners of numerous accolades, including the Barry Award at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Best Newcomer and Best of the Fest at the Sydney Comedy Festival (all in 2009) – if you don’t make time for much comedy this winter, make time for this.

Until March 3. 7.30pm Mon-Sat, 5.30pm Fri & Sat, £21.50
Charing Cross Theatre, The Arches, Villiers Street, Wc2N 6NL

The posh boy from Fresh Meat, and British Comedy Award nominee, Jack Whitehall lays down his life lessons on making mistakes.

March 9-10, 6.30pm, £16
