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

Pecs – The 80s Show | Soho Theatre | 4-9 Dec
Drag King collective Pecs make their Soho Theatre debut with this eighties themed cabaret, which promises to be packed with power suits, Prince tribute acts, and New Romantic pretty boys, and to well and truly stick it to the man. So, that sounds like a recipe for a great evening out, doesn’t it? Head this way for more information and to book your tickets.

Adam Riches – The Beakington Town Hall Meetings | Battersea Arts Centre | 4-9 Dec
“Last night, disaster struck the Beakington Town Hall Christmas Fundraiser. Sixteen Tortoises were massacred in a tombola-related prank gone wrong…seriously wrong. So tonight, all members of the Beakington Town Hall Council – YOU – will be hauled in front of an independent adjudicator – ADAM RICHES – to face an inquiry into just who opened up the door of that tombola.” Ha ha. The brilliantly silly award-winning Adam Riches does a thing. Of COURSE you want to go, see this page here.

Thirty Christmases | New Diorama | 4-23 Dec (pictured)
I have been looking forward to this one for a while now, because I love anything with a Christmas theme, and I love anything that involves a collection of my favourite creatives, and this does: it’s a “rebellious comedy for grown-ups” written by Jonny Donahoe, with songs (as you might imagine) by Jonny & The Baptists, and it stars the aforementioned Donahoe alongside his J&TB collaborator Paddy Gervers, plus the brilliant Rachel Parris. Hurrah, click here for details.
