If only because it’s Chocolate Cake Day today, TW London is pleased to present you all with this platter of light-crumbed cultural dainties…

TODAY’S COMEDY CHOICES

NATYs Final, Bloomsbury Theatre, 27 Jan
Moan-prone comedy veteran Arthur Smith MCs the glitzy climax to this year’s New Act Of The Year Awards – aka the NATYs. Amongst the finalists vying for first place are perspirational blues troupe Jonny & The Baptists, misfit comic Paul F Taylor and must-see sketch collective Four Screws Loose. Details and tickets here.

Voodoo Nights, Lyric Hammersmith, 27 Jan
Who wants Voodoo? Well, I’d go so far as to say that we all do. Especially given tonight’s roll-call, as features Voodoo’s usual shamanic hosts – “adorably awkward” James Acaster, shouty Nick Helm and observational wit Josh Widdicombe - plus black-magical guests Simon Munnery, Tony Law and Lloyd Langford. Details and tickets here.

Helen Keen’s Spacetacular!, Leicester Square Theatre, 27 Jan (pictured)
Comic cosmonaut Helen Keen siphons a space-themed dose of intellectual chic-geekery into this UK Space Agency-sponsored ‘Spacetacular’ all about… well, space. Details and tickets here.
