What's the secret of good comedy? Coventry seems to have started on something of a mission to find out.

Tonight, at The Belgrade, you can sample the delights on offer from Jongleurs Comedy Club when it takes up a one-night residency at the Coventry theatre.

The mirth continues at the venue tomorrow night with more comic talent than you can shake a stick at, featuring Al Murray, Sean Lock and Jim Tavare.

It's just what Coventry needs and if loads of you go they might do it again.

And then on Monday you can enjoy even more stand up thrills at the rejuvenated It's a Scream Comedy Club at the Colin Campbell.

Playing at The Hand and Heart tonight are Spacehead, supported by Varga.

Spacehead are a three piece, described as space rock, switching from fast, loud and bass thumping numbers to relatively ambient pieces.

The following night at the same venue sees the return of Valley, with a harmonic blend of furious melodic pop, conjuring up images of Green Day, Teenage Fanclub and The Lemonheads, with Martin Rossiter on vocals.

Noise merchants Gash will be providing support, revealing a new sound and new material.

Glove will be performing at The Golden Cross on Monday, with Mirrorphase and Love Crusade on Thursday.

Surreal - The Art of Noise will be pushing back the boundaries of the Coventry club scene at The Colosseum tomorrow night, with fire-eaters, jugglers and stilt walkers, as well as some of the best DJs around.

On a more personal note, my own band Eusebio, are preparing to spend three days at EMI's studios in London in early February. I'm very excited about it and that's my only real reason for telling you.

And the secret of good comedy? I'll tell you next week.
