There are still plenty of laughs to be had from the second annual Berkomedy festival, which continues this week at the Kings Arms in the High Street.

Tonight’s double bill features pint-sized Lucy Porter and Stephen Carlin.

Tomorrow the comedy spotlight switches to the Court Theatre at Pendley, where Richard Herring will be showcasing his hit Edinburgh show We’re All Going To Die.

The acclaimed stand-up and host of the notorious Leicester Square comedy podcasts has taken religion, politics, love and sex as core subjects for previous stand-up shows, now it’s mortality that provides the theme.

Tickets to see the show are £15, available from www.courttheatre.co.uk or by calling 07543 560478.

Then it’s back to Berkhamsted on Sunday, where the Kings Arms will welcome Steve Hall and Tom Craine.

On Monday it’s the turn of Carl Donnelly and Tommy Rowson, Tuesday’s show featuring Nick Helm – fresh from his success with TV sitcom Uncle – and Rhys James is already a sellout and the fun continues on Wednesday with award-winning Lucy Beaumont and Paul McCaffrey before the festival comes to an end on Wednesday, March 19 with softly-spoken Irish stand-up Jarlath Regan, renowned for his An Irishman Abroard podcast interviews, and Suzi Ruffell.

All the Kings Arms gigs start at 8pm and tickets are £10. Find out more about the festival and the acts involved at www.get-stuffed.biz.
