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

Trygve Wakenshaw & Barnie Duncan – Different Party | Soho Theatre | 8-20 Jan (pictured)
You may have gathered by now that if Trygve Wakenshaw is anywhere nearby we are pretty much guaranteed to include him in our Three To See recommendations. Plus, this show was quite the hit at the 2017 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The TW favourite joins forces with fellow New Zealander Barnie Duncan for a show set in a boring office that will be anything but boring. See the venue website here for all the info.

Bridget Christie – What Now? | Soho Theatre | 8-20 Jan
I’ve just remembered that when I selected today’s shows, I did in fact consciously choose three shows all on at the same venue. I can’t quite remember what the justification was, though to be fair, all three shows deserve to be recommended, so there’s that. Anyway, this is the second, the glorious Bridget Christie, with this no-doubt-glorious work in progress. Yes, it’s a work in progress, but come on, this is Bridget Christie we’re talking about. Head this way for details.

Rob Newman – Total Eclipse Of Descartes | Soho Theatre | 8-20 Jan
“Rob Newman attempts to piece together a philosophy for our troubled times by sifting through 3000 years of thought: from Pythagoras to Artificial Intelligence by way of Pavlov’s dogs, Jane Goodall’s chimpanzees and Frankie Howerd’s trousers.” Well, I’m sold, aren’t you? Another brilliant act with another brilliant show. Click here for more.
