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

16 Singers | The Albany | 15-16 Oct
This show has a very specific target audience, so unless you have access to a very small child then maybe go straight onto the next tip: this show has been specially crafted for babies aged 0-18months, and their carers, and puts together movement, rhythm and song to capture the attention of these tiny tots. I think it sounds lovely. And if you miss the Albany performances, there are also performances at ArtsDepot and Stratford Circus later in the month. More info here, book tickets here.

Kieran Hodgson: Lance | Soho Theatre | 13-17 Oct (pictured)
Kieran Hodgson has been around for a while, doing loads of good comedy and appearing on TV and radio, but I feel as though this show marks a bit of a breakthrough, what with it getting a comedy award nomination at the Edinburgh Fringe this year and everything. The Lance of the title is disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong, and it’s he that forms the theme of this set, which, I pretty much guarantee you, will be very good. See this page here for more info and tickets.

Massive Dad | Pleasance Islington | 15-18 Oct
We are big fans of Massive Dad, here at TW Towers. In fact, one of our Edinburgh reviewers penned this exact sentence about one of their shows: “Their deconstructionist sketches are a creative tour-de-force, as thread-bare and yet as elegantly and elaborately crafted as the Bayeux Tapestry” And if you’re not won over by that assessment, I am honestly not sure what to say. Quick, quick. Get your tickets. Right about here.
