And today’s ThisWeek-tipped, LDN-based events are…

The Horne Section | Soho Theatre | 18 Sep
If you want to take my advice as to what entertainment to choose today, then I’m afraid you have only one choice of venue – The Soho Theatre – but three choices of show. And this is the first: the ever popular Horne Section perform tonight, with their usual and satisfying mixture of stand up and music. More dates coming up in October and November if you can’t make this one. Click here to book.

Fairy Tales For Grown Ups – Eaten Father, Eaten Mother | Soho Theatre | 18 Sep
“This mash-up of Scots tinker and Romanian gypsy fairy tales, comes complete with boys becoming men; men becoming women; the darkest of arts; inescapable destiny, and a baby sister who isn’t quite what anyone expected…” The excellently talented story teller Ben Haggerty returns to Soho Theatre for another one off performance, and if you haven’t seen him in action before, then it’s probably about time you did. See the venue website here for info.

Mae Martin – Dope | Soho Theatre | 18-30 Sep (pictured)
Another TW favourite, Mae Martin, heads Soho-wards with the show that won her an Edinburgh Comedy Award nomination at the 2017 Edinburgh Festival. Offering up an examination of a lifetime of obsessions, fandom and addiction, she attempts to uncover quite why humans pursue short-term pleasure, despite knowing the long-term negative consequences.
