COMEDY: The Sunday Show w/ James Acaster + Phil Wang | The Invisible Dot | 26 Oct
The Invisible Dot’s super-saver Sunday line-up has many winning attributes – not least £5 entry, cheapy pints and the stars of this particular edition, namely the highly-ThreeWeeks-rated and “very dry” James Acaster, “ready wit” Phil Wang and non-identikit sketch pairing Twins, and MC Mae Martin.

THEATRE: Jacques Brel Is Alive And Well (And Living In Paris) | Charing Cross Theatre | until 22 Nov
A big-name cast pays loving musical homage to late Belgian chanteur/actor Jacques Brel in this revue-esque ‘mini play’ mingling narrative and song, “from music hall to naturalism, political satire to rock concert”, said director Andrew Keates in his in-depth recent interview with ThisWeek). Details and tickets here.
THEATRE: The Pearl | Greenwich Theatre | 26-27 Oct (pictured)
A stylised re-imagining of Steinbeck’s novella told via dance, verse, puppetry and a softly-softly piano score; Dumbshow’s critically-acclaimed ‘The Pearl’ dives down into the fable of a poor diver who finds the ‘pearl of the world’. Details and tickets here.
