Laugh Your Amps Off feat John Hegley/Christian Reilly/Hils Barker, Audio Gold, 9 May
Particularly fond of amps? Well, prepare to have yours laughed right off by singing comic laureate John Hegley, rhinestone rockstar Christian Reilly, and screenwriter/comedienne Hils Barker. And you mustn’t mind losing them, because it’s all for charity, in this case The Musicians’ Benevolent Fund. Details and tickets here.

Mark Dolan – Totally Awesome, Udderbelly, 9 May
Mark Dolan will be showing off his bona fide brilliance as part of this year’s many-teated Udderbelly extravaganza. It’s a brand new show, and finds Dolan feting the finer things in life, like that time his tricky ex girlfriend wasn’t pregnant after all. Awesome! Details and tickets here.
