    The UK Jewish comedy festival returns to JW3 for its fourth year next month, boasting a string of household names.

    The festival kicks off on December 7 finishing 10 days later with a set by Shappi Khorsandi, straight from her stint in the Australian jungle for I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!

    Highlights include a performance from Mark Steel, a masterclass from Guardian political cartoonist Martin Rowson and a discussion between David Baddiel and Devorah Baum on the latter’s book, The Jewish Joke.

    The Misogynist Film Club is one of the most eye-catching events of the festival, a panel discussion on December 10 with Guardian columnist Hadley Freeman and comedian Abigail Burdess, discussing films which are problematic from a feminist perspective, yet still loved by many.

    The Comedy Club 4 Kids, also on Dec 10, promises a family friendly show without “any patronising idiocy”. JW3 will also play host to game show Pundemonium, on Dec 9, in which contestants will take on a set of “punishing linguistic challenges” in a competitive wordplay game.
