And today’s ThisWeek-tipped, LDN-based events are…
zazU – Raisins To Stay Alive | Museum Of Comedy | 28-29 Jul
We loved this comedy troupe when we saw their show in Edinburgh last year – and not just because it was called ‘A Fête Worse Than Death’. Their new show, as you can see, has an equally, brilliantly groansome pun in the title, and we have very high hopes that it will consist of the same high quality ridiculousness that characterised their previous work. See the venue website here for more info.
Diary Of A Madman | Gate Theatre | 28 Jul-24 Sep
This is a new play by one of our long-term favourite playwrights Al Smith, and like all his stuff, it sounds fascinating and promising. Described as a “portrait of a man spiralling towards insanity, when his senses of personal, professional and national identity are all challenged”, it tells the story of Pop Sheeran, who shoulders the family trade of restoring Scotland’s iconic Forth Rail Bridge.

The Gideon and Hubcap Show | Soho Theatre | 28-30 Jul (pictured)
A tried and tested US import, this one, and one that’s won high praise from the TW staff because of the duo’s funny, engaging material, and excellent musical skill. Expect wondrous instruments, belly laughs, death-defying acts of friendship, and the highs and lows of love and other indoor sports. For info and to book, head right this way.
