Today in London: Saturday 17 November 2012
This particular Saturday 17 Nov may not appear all that significant, but it is. Especially apropos of odd comedy, Greg Davies, and inter-generational film festivals. Just look…
TODAY’S COMEDY CHOICES
Weirdos Comedy presents… That’s Saturday Night Comedy feat Pat Cahill, Tim Shishodia and Adam Larter, Horse Bar, 17 Nov
Stating the Saturday-night obvious, Weirdos Comedy’s ‘That’s Saturday Night Comedy’ club sponsors whimsical sarcasmo Pat Cahill, his part-time partner Tim Shishodia and ThreeWeeks certified “genius/lunatic” Adam Larter to each do… whatever it is that they do. Tickets are priced at a damned reasonable £0. Additional info here.
Greg Davies – The Back Of My Mum’s Head, Hammersmith Apollo, 17 Nov
Tall ‘Inbetweeners’ taskmaster Greg Davies may be having the last laugh at the moment – Channel 4 having just commissioned his new classroom-based series ‘Man Down’ and all – but it wasn’t always so. Fortunately, he’s not too famous to talk about the less lucrative times in his and his family’s lives, which is what ‘The Back Of My Mum’s Head’ is all about.

TODAY’S FILM CHOICES
Framed Film Festival, Barbican, 17-25 Nov (pictured)
This particular Barbican-based cinema festival is geared towards London’s intergenerational cinema-loving set, and has a varied, vivid visual programme to prove it. Animated films like French-Belgian creature feature ‘Ernest And Celestine’ and German fairytale ‘Princess Lillifee & The Secret Of The Unicorn’ will be shown beside an oh-so special preview of teen musical ‘Pitch Perfect’ and, on the other side of the coin, real-life gang riot document ‘One Mile Away’. Classes in film reviewing and screenwriting, plus age-graduated ‘Make A Film’ days – by the end of which participants will have shot and edited their own take-home movie – are also bookable at www.barbican.org.uk
