The best comedy

Adam Hills
The kindest Australian on the planet (you wouldn’t catch him chopping the tails off stingrays) charms the community with more tales of whimsy. City Halls, Glasgow, Fri 22 Sep.

Frank Sidebottom
A right blast from the past here as the papier-mâché Timperley Superstar confuses and bamboozles all around him. Arta, Glasgow, Sat 23 Sep.

Jason Byrne
The venue may well be renamed the Old Sweatbucket after tonight’s frenetic endeavours from this hyper Irishman. The Old Fruitmarket, Glasgow, Sat 23 Sep.

Mark Thomas
The arms trade get the brush-off from the estimable Thommo (pictured) as he continues to spread the word. Tron Theatre, Glasgow, Tue 26 & Wed 27 Sep.

Andrew Maxwell
Another of Ireland’s favourite comedy sons rouses from his post-Festival hibernation to assault our senses with more joyous japery. The Stand, Glasgow, Wed 27 Sep; the Stand, Edinburgh, Fri 29-Sun 1 Oct.

Jason Manford
The young chap who came our way with his Urban Legend in August 2005 will once again show a fresh-faced ability to unite, not divide, a room. See preview. Jongleurs, Glasgow, Fri 29 & Sat 30 Sep.
