COMEDY: It Might Get Ugly feat Sara Pascoe/Thom Tuck/Lou Sanders/Adam Hess, Garrett Millerick/Joz Norris, Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club, 2 Dec
With off-kilter character comic Karl Schultz as host, tonight’s It Might Get Ugly showcase is the first of its kind. The only rule is that guest speakers like Sara Pascoe, Thom Tuck et al must spill the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but. Details and tickets here.
MUSIC: Ty Segall + White Fence, Scala, 2 Dec (pictured)
One-man garage band Ty Segall takes the top spot on tonight’s Scala billing, playing behind his new LP, ‘Sleeper’, whilst the co-listed White Fence, lo fi figurehead Tim Presley, backs his latest album ‘Cyclops Reap’. Details and tickets here.
THEATRE: Suitcase, Liverpool Street Station, 2 Dec
Free-to-see but requiring an RSVP, director Ros Merkin’s piece is derived from his mother’s experiences of arriving in Britain from Vienna via Kindertransport, the pre-WW2-time mission to rescue Jewish children from the spreading Nazi threat. Details here.
