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

Jen Kirkman – The All New Material, Girl Tour | Soho Theatre | 29 Jan-3 Feb
Today I declare another Soho Theatre day, given the three utterly lovelies that are starting runs there this blessed day. Let us begin with American stand-up Jen Kirkman, who promises to regale you with new stories and jokes that do not feature in her Netflix specials, and to keep a bit of a distance from things political. Well, apart from talking about that, ahem, esteemed 45th. See the venue website here for info.

Lauren Pattison – Lady Muck | Soho Theatre | 29 Jan-3 Feb
And on to another lovely, yes lovely, even if her show name be ‘Lady Muck’. This particular lovely, Lauren Pattison had a sell out run at last year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and is another of those myriad Comedy Award Best Newcomer nominees, all descending on the Soho of late. Hmm, that sounded almost like a complaint, and I assure you it’s not. And this is a great show, from a great up and coming talent. Click here for more.

Jordan Brookes – Body Of Work | Soho Theatre | 29-30 Jan
And so to my final lovely, and a show which we actually recommended a couple of months back, but which we have absolutely no hesitation in recommending again in case you didn’t catch it in November. The excellent Jordan Brookes, as you may recall, was nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy Award main prize in 2017, and our reviewer who saw this show declared it to be a “clever, but superbly dark hour of stand-up”. All the details right about here.
