All performed by former members of the D’Oyly Carte Opera Company.

4 Journalist, television presenter and best-selling author Ned Boulting has timed his show ‘Bikeology’ impeccably, with its arrival in Brighton so soon after the launch of the public bike scheme. Featuring brand new tales from life in the cycling lane, as well as the inside scoop from his time at the 2017 Tour de France.
Theatre Royal Brighton, Sunday 22 October, 7.30pm, from £24.15
5 The Living Legend himself, Nick Helm delivers some home truths about life, love and how not to be an ass. Titled ‘There Is Nothing You Can Do To Me That I Have Not Already Done To Myself’, in characteristic underdog fashion, the larger than life damaged almost rock-god and comedian leaves audiences stunned and rocked with humour every time. The show has already sold out, but if you can beg, borrow or steal a ticket (or pick up that rarity of a return) get yourself along on Thursday to shake the chill off your boots in style.
Komedia, Thursday 19 October, 8pm, £12
6 After a rousing success on Taskmaster – even occasionally breaking out of being grumpy to have fun – Paul Chowdhry is back on the road doing what he does best: stand-up comedy. Chowdhry’s new show is called ‘Live Innit’, serving up dry and wry observations on life as he sees it.
Connaught Theatre, Worthing, Friday 20 October, 8pm, £21.50
