Looking ahead to comedy gigs over the next few months we see one notorious name looming on the horizon: Russell Brand.
The libertine radio jockey, actor and comedian will bring his Messiah Complex World Tour back to Portsmouth Guildhall on February 28.
In you missed Brand at the Guildhall in October you’ll have to get in quickly here, tickets are drying up fast.
Other big names appearing at the Guildhall are Edinburgh Festival Fringe veteran Russell Kane on February 24 and British Comedy Awards queen Sarah Millican.
Irish upstart Ed Byrne is set to liven things up at the same venue in his February 23 show.
Martin Beaumont, Kojo and John Ryan are all part of 2014’s first offering at Jongleurs Comedy Club at Gunwharf Quays on January 11.
The Wedge Comedy Club will continue on Friday nights at the Wedgewood Rooms in Southsea.
