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

Jen Kirkman | Soho Theatre | 16-21 Nov (pictured)
Rather successful US comedian Jen Kirkman head’s to London’s Soho Theatre for a short run this month, so while you can, grab the opportunity to see this acclaimed stand-up, comedy writer, and best-selling book scribe. And if you want to read a very interesting article in which she talks about her career, her books and this show, see our recent Caro Meets Q&A right about here. Meanwhile, if you want to go right ahead and book tickets, you should head to this page on the venue website.

Christian Rizzo – D’après Une Histoire Vraie | Sadler’s Wells | 16-17 Nov
This sounds like a very interesting dance piece, and I think that because it’s inspired by memories of a folk dance in Istanbul, and explores the connection between dance and communities and how movement brings people together. But also because it’s the work of French multidisciplinary artist Christian Rizzo, whose projects usually integrate dance with design, fashion and visual art, though it sounds like this particular show will be a bit more minimalist than his usual output. See this page here for more info and to book.

Laugh Out Loud for Lively Minds | The Comedy Store | 16 Nov
Monday nights in November can be so dark and grim. Here’s a way to have fun and also make you feel like you’re doing some good in the world. An impressive line up of some TW favourites – the likes of Sarah Pascoe, Tom Allen, Aisling Bea and Brett Goldstein – perform in aid of Lively Minds, an award winning charity working to improve the lives of deprived children in Ghana and Uganda. Informations and ticket bookery here.
