There is nothing funny about temperatures above 40 °C or humidity levels above 50 percent. As far as weather is concerned, June is probably one of the least funny months—but the same cannot be said about the entertainment scene in the city this month.
From annual favourites like the Whose Line is it Anyway to the nearly sold-out Michael McIntyre show, this month is filled with world-class comedy acts. So even if the soaring temperature makes you want to curl up in your air-conditioned apartment until summer ends, there are reasons plenty to laugh. Here is our pick for the month:
