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

Europe On The Verge Of A Nervous Breakdown | Old Red Lion | 25-26 Feb
You might remember a recommendation we made for you in May of last year, of ‘6 Vitelloni’, a collection of plays paying homage to the work of Federico Fellini? Well, if that appealed, perhaps this, the next event in what looks like it’s becoming a series, will also find favour. This time you can look forward to six short plays inspired by the work of Pedro Almodóvar. For details, see the venue website here.

Garrett Millerick – Something Old Something New Something Borrowed Something Blue | Vault Festival | 25 Feb (pictured)
“Sensible answers to stupid questions, bar stool philosophy and subjects you’d normally discuss with a cab driver. Things you never realised were annoying, analysed in detail you never thought necessary.” He’s a definite, long-term, TW favourite, and there’s a very solid reason for that, so don’t miss this great Vault-based opportunity to see this super-skilled stand-up in action. More information right about here.

And so to some other TW favourites, one long term, like the aforementioned Garrett Millerick, the second a more recent addition. In any case, these are both exceptionally talented comedians, and I’d suggest that this is definitely not the time to be put off by the fact that it’s a work in progress. You get to see two class acts exhibiting their freshest material, for the price of one ticket. Who wouldn’t want that? Head this way.
