Normally I'd recommend Bill Bailey, but he was only doing one night.

If you only have time to see one of the above, make it "On the Island of Aars", which was quite excellent.

Most other things will be a matter of taste -- I'd be very pleased to go to another show from Tim FitzHigham, great if you like the exploits of eccentric Englishmen... and otherwise, I'd look around for unfamiliar stuff with entertaining titles.
