Tonights TV Highlights: Channel 4

9pm: Alan Carr Live: Spexy Beast

Channel 4's Funny Fortnight concludes tonight with another evening of gems new and old. Alan Carr Live: Spexy Beast is the second stand up show from one of the UK's favourite funny men and TV personalities. Alan Carr returned to his stand-up roots in 2011 for his first major live comedy tour in four years. Filmed in front of a sold out crowd of 13,000 fans at the Manchester Evening News Arena as part of his 33 date UK and Ireland arena tour, Spexy Beast sees Alan back on stage.

10pm: The Boyle Variety Performance

Shown as part of Channel 4's Funny Fortnight season. The Boyle Variety Performance is Frankie Boyle's unique take on a royal variety event of a similar name. Complete with red carpet, celebrity guests, comedy, variety, music and a generous helping of Frankie himself, the show comes direct from a glamorous London theatre and features content so cutting edge and scurrilously funny that no self-respecting royal would ever dream of attending. Frankie Boyle says of the show: 'I will appear on TV for very possibly the last time. A final swoop on the Death Star, it cannot end in anything but disaster.'
A last course of vintage comedy offerings follow, including cult obscurity The Inbetweeners , Norbert Smith, a Life (starring a bloke who may well be Harry Enfield), Star Stories spoofery and equine walloping in Smack the Pony .
