Remember the last last time you cried with laughter?
If your memory needs jogging, let the professionals sort you out.
Tim Minchin, soon on stage at the Soho Theatre, is a musical comedian in a league of his own.
Not quite as song-based as the next best Flight of the Conchords, Tim's furious off-the-cuff wit and remarkable piano playing ability are a spectacle to savour.
Working in the same musical vein are the up-and-coming Pappy's Fun Club.
A sketch-based team of four, their improvised musical madness promises to be one of the highlights of the Riverside Studios' upcoming week of comedy treats.
Tim Minchin in 'Ready For This' is at the Soho Theatre, 21 Dean Street, from Wednesday, July 23, until Saturday, July 26. s10. 9.45pm. Call 0870 4296 883. See www.sohotheatre.com
Jon Richardson and Pappy's Fun Club is at the Riverside Studios, Crisp Road on Tuesday, July 22. s12/10. 7.30pm. Call 020 8237 1111. See www.riversidestudios.co.uk
