It's probably unfair because The Glee remains very good with high quality acts on a regular basis, but the fortnightly comedy nights at The Hare & Hounds in Kings Heath are highly recommended for live comedy fans.
They get a number of reasonably big names from the stand-up circuit at bargain prices, often because they are trying out new material. The venue is tiny, with room for perhaps 100 people (I don't know, I haven't counted) which makes for an intimate experience with plenty of opportunities to interact with the performers if they are into that sort of thing. They've re-started after a break for the holidays with Rob Rouse up next on 20th September and Anrew O'Neill on 4th October. We're out of the country for Rob Rouse but hope to get to see Andrew O'Neill.
