Valentine’s Day: The Jester

So you’ve fallen for a goofball. Not only can they crack you up in a matter of seconds, but they also don’t mind being the butt of a joke – as long as it’s a good one.

Date ideas: Obviously, laughter is the aphrodisiac of choice. Get their mojo going with tickets to a special V Day selection of comedians. If your sniggering snookums liked Jack Whitehall in Fresh Meat and Bad Education, they’ll love seeing him in person. Same goes for nonsensical Jimeoin and whimsical James Acaster, while Paul Foot’s pig (yep, you read that correctly) will send your luv into hysterics. What’s more, a pair of musicals about a factory that starts making boots for cross-dressers and a girl with three possible fathers will have your top banana chortling with glee.

Here are some suggestions:

Valentine’s Comedy Special, 14 Feb at Comedy Store Manchester

Jack Whitehall, 10 Feb at First Direct Arena, Leeds and 11 – 13 Feb at The SSE Arena, Wembley, London

Jimeoin – Renonsense Man, 10 Feb at Exeter Corn Exchange and 11 Feb at Bournemouth Pavilion

James Acaster, 10 Feb at Old Market, Hove

Paul Foot, ’tis a Pity She’s a Piglet, 10 Feb at Oran Mor, Glasgow and 11 Feb at City Varieties Music Hall, Leeds

Kinky Boots, ongoing at Adelphi Theatre, London

Mamma Mia!, ongoing at Novello Theatre, London
