Jackie Mason, Charing Cross

US comedy giant Jackie Mason returns for his very last UK tour. “Four generations of rabbis and 30 years of comedy” have made him the man he is today (in his own words), and that man is a very funny one indeed. With more than 50 years in the business, he’s the sort of performer it’s hard to find these days: a skilled storyteller and jokesmith. These shows will also feature a daily rundown of Mason’s views on the US 2012 presidential race, notable for its pompous grandstanding and over-zealous theatricality – sure to be worth the admission fee alone.

Feb 13-Mar 17, 8pm, £25+

Chris Boyd: Laugh a Minute

The aim here, as the name suggests, is for each act to deliver a laugh at least every 60 seconds. Harder than it sounds – and it doesn’t sound that easy in the 
first place.

Thurs, Jan 26, 8pm, Free

Stewart Lee: Carpet Remnant World, Leicester Square

Lee has often been referred to as ‘the comedian’s comedian’ but this does him a disservice. His intelligent, provocative work makes him one of the finest and most challenging stand-ups currently working, case closed. This residency purports to be about nothing, but has Lee take aim at comedy itself, and even fellow stands-ups are not spared the ire of this comedy great.

Frank Skinner & Friends, Leicester Square

The friends here include magicians, musicians (opera!) alongside the stand-ups, as Skinner makes a most welcome stage return.

Bush Hall Presents..., Shepherd's Bush

Oddball Milton Jones (left) is on hand to serve up his trademark scattershot surrealism and one-liner wizardry, with support and MC duties handled by irishman Andrew Maxwell.

Jack Dee: Work in Progress, Soho

The man with a face like a slapped arse on downers, merchant of doom Jack Dee roadtests new material – which will probably be laced with lashings of grumbly wit 
– ahead of a new UK tour.

Lyric Comedy Club, Hammersmith

Set List, Soho

Comedy pros test their mettle with this Who’s Line Is It Anyway-style improv night, in which the audience part-write the topics that the acts have to conjure a routine from (while the set list is projected on a screen behind the stage).
