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

The Thinking Drinkers Sessions | Museum Of Comedy | 6 Jul
You probably already know all about the Thinking Drinkers because you will undoubtedly have read the Q&A we did with them last year about the show they were doing at that time. But for those who don’t, the perfect introduction might be one of their regular spots at the Museum Of Comedy, and this one’s all 4th of July themed, despite the fact that it’s on 6 Jul. As the blurb so aptly puts it “It’s not a comedy show, it’s essentially a tasting. But not one that’s f***ing boring”. Hurrah. Click here for more.

Figs In Wigs – Often Onstage | Battersea Arts Centre | 6-8 Jul (pictured)
We’ve long been fans of Figs In Wigs, and their work that in many ways defies categorisation, and this show in particular got a resounding thumbs up from our reviewer who saw it at last year’s Edinburgh Festival. Expect “an offbeat facetious romp that explores the ins and outs of the stage through the medium of dance”, and head this way for more info and to book.

Secret Life Of Humans | New Diorama | 6-7 Jul
“In 1949, Dr Jacob Bronowski installs a secret, alarmed room in his house. Fifty years later his grandson discovers his secrets, unearthing echoes from across six million years of human history, told from the perspective of a century in which every year is a revolutionary year.” Take a sneaky peak at this show inspired by Yuval Harari’s international bestseller ‘Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind’, which is headed for the Edinburgh Fringe this summer. See the venue website here for details.
