Three To See on 1 Dec: Dick Whittington, The Terrible Tale Of The Twiddly Widdlies, Jackson’s Way: The Christmas Top Up Power Seminar
And today’s ThisWeek-tipped, LDN-based events are…
Dick Whittington | Wilton’s Music Hall | 1-31 Dec (pictured)
Okay, so it’s the first December and there’s no getting away from Christmas now. If you don’t identify as a Christian (I don’t) it’s fine; just look on this as your cheery midwinter festival, as established a really long time ago by pagans who were around a long time before Jesus was ever born. Anyway, it’s another pantomime! Dick Whittington! In a great venue, and from a great team – it’s written by comedy and broadcasting veteran Roy Hudd, also on Dame duty, and directed by Debbie Flitcroft. See this page here for all the info.
The Terrible Tale Of The Twiddly Widdlies | New Diorama | 1-5 Dec
This sounds utterly grim, and a bit Grimm, really, and yet I suspect it will also be very funny. The blurb promises dark and hilarious storytelling from Clem Garritty and Ollie Jones, two members of multi-award winning comedy troupe Kill The Beast. For those of you who need an antidote to all that pagan, midwinter frivolity, here, have some darkness instead. For more information and to book tickets, have a look at this page here.
Jackson’s Way: The Christmas Top Up Power Seminar | Battersea Arts Centre | 1-12 Dec
And one for those of you who don’t care either way about Christmas, because really, this is just prize-plucking comedy, isn’t it? Will Adamson revives his Edinburgh Comedy Award-winning creation, life coach Chris John Jackson, for this festively twisted self-help spoof show. Info and tickets from right about here.
