Two more weeks of the Oxford Comedy Festival

As the Oxford Comedy Festival enters its last two weeks, there are still plenty of outstanding stand-ups on offer. Daily Info picks the six shows we think you should all check out:

For an award winning joke-machine - Adele Cliff

Last year Adele Cliff won a lot of top jokes awards at the Edinburgh Fringe (Dave, Evening Standard, The Telegraph and the I newspaper). The self-styled joke-machine brings to Oxford a show 'about lions and sharing, but not the lion's share'. We guarantee you will laugh.

7.30pm, Sunday 21st at the Jam Factory

For something a little absurd - Joz Norris

Joz returns with his third solo character show, with a new alter ego, Mr Fruit Salad. Promising absurd silliness as well as an exploration on anxiety and grief, all expertly wrapped together by a Fringe hit comedian.

7.45pm, Wednesday 24th at the Old Fire Station

For a marriage of science and comedy - Olga Koch

For her new show Olga will be telling a love story through the medium of computer programming. As she looks at what happens when we can't separate love and technology, Olga will teach audiences how to code. You'll laugh, you'll learn. What more could you want from a comedy show?

8pm, Thursday 25th at Common Ground

For a late night treat - An American Werewolf in London

All July, QED Comedy Lab have been hosting Saturday night screenings at the Ultimate Picture Palace. And they've saved perhaps the best till last. An American Werewolf in London is the rarity of a comedy that is genuinely terrifying and a horror film packed with laughs. Striking an impressive balance of tone, John Landis' film is a fascinating blend of fish-out-of-water comedy, folk horror and incredibly physical effects. For the festival, it's been selected by All Killa No Filla podcast host, Rachel Fairburn, who will introduce the movie with a set.

11pm, Saturday 27th at the Ultimate Picture Palace

For a comedic big hitter - Jen Brister

What do you moan about when you're married, have kids, a house and a job you (sometimes) love? Jen sets to find out in her new set that follows on from her sell out run last year. With comedic rage and a strong feminist wit, Jen is the latest in a festival line-up that has had some of the best female comedians in the business, and a total must-see.

9pm, Monday 29th July at the Tap Social Movement

Check out the Oxford Comedy Festival website for all the upcoming comedy sets.
