Following on from last year’s memorable week of stand-up comedy, the Royal Shakespeare Company is again delighted to be hosting some of the hottest names of the comedy circuit.

The RSC’s second Week With Laughter, which takes place in the Swan Theatre between Friday, 22 to Saturday, 30 October, and features the likes of Jimmy Carr, Mark Thomas, and, for the kids, James Campbell.

Also appearing during the week will be those masters of improvisation The Comedy Store Players, featuring Have I Got News For You's Paul Merton.

All this is topped off with New York cabaret stars Kiki and Herb, mile-high comedy with acerbic airhostess Pam Ann, women’s stand-up night, Lipstick and Shopping, and Bard behaviour from the Reduced Shakespeare Company.

And, as a very special treat, Al Murray will be giving it both barrels as the Pub Landlord, on Tuesday, 5 October in the RSC.
