Comedy: Gary Delaney at Patrick Kavanagh
Son of Birmingham and other half to the comedic genius of Sarah Millican, Delaney is a bionic powered gag telling machine. If one joke doesn’t get you don’t worry there’ll be another along in rapid quick time. Several appearances on TV shows such as Mock The Week and One Night Stand have seen his comedic stock rise to such a degree he is now rightly regarded as one of the funniest men in Britain.

Gig: Moselele Summer Singalong at The Prince of Wales
It’s that time of the year again. Birmingham’s most unique ukulele fiddlers Moselele are hosting a glorious singalong under the gleaming sunshine, it will be sunny and that’s that, in Moseley’s most salubrious beer garden at The Prince of Wales. Singing is absolutely compulsory and when the music is this infectious it’s impossible to resist anyway.

Film: Lost In Translation at The Mockingbird £2
Beautifully realised meditation on existential ennui or facile heap of pretentious cobblers? Though the film has split critics, not least because of its reduction of Japanese culture to cartoon stereotype, Coppola’s vision is undeniably stylish and Bill Murray’s world weary Bob Harris is a delight. Check out our other screen picks here.
