2 Fine Young Cannibals frontman Roland Gift is back with his new self-titled solo album. His distinctive vocal stylings pitched him as a frontline trendsetter with FYC, since which he’s burned a path with both film acting and musical score work. Gift’s latest tour will be a mix of new favourites with old classics.

4 The Cast Iron Selection Box returns for its third year, serving up a hilarious and suitably jolly celebration of new writing, comedy and cold reading. With especially-written Christmas themed short plays tied up with a ribbon and presented to performers who are as much in the dark as to their content as the audience.

5 Feeling the stress of Christmas? Of being less than perfect for your family? Needing a pick-me-up? Tickets are selling fast to the Scummy Mummies Christmas Show, an evening of festive laughs for less-than-perfect parents (and for those sans offspring too). There are promises of scummy carols, yuletide sketches, festive stand-up and very scummy Santa stories from Scummy Mummies comedians Helen Thorn and Ellie Gibson. Just the relief from the seasonal scrum.
Komedia, Monday 18 December 2017, 8pm, £15
6 The last Smiley Sunday of the year keeps one eye on your pocket – a very affordable evening out – and another on your conscience – with proceeds going to the charity TIA Volunteers, supporting volunteers in Africa. Laugh until you can’t see straight at a roster of local comics headlined by South Coast Comedian of the Year 2015 Joe Foster. The night is hosted by your MC Brodi Snook, and extra jollies come courtesy of a delightful raffle and happy hour drinks prices all night.
