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

Simon Munnery – Standing Still | The 100 Club | 9 Nov
Comedy veteran Simon Munnery performs the show that he took to the Edinburgh Festival this summer for his thirtieth year. And yes, you read that a-right. Thirty years at Edinburgh, thirty years in comedy. I have to say I was really spooked when I heard that. It was like finding out someone I thought must be roughly my own age was actually born in 1988. Anyway, enough chat about the terrifying passage of time, click this link to book your ticket to see this legendary comedian.

Wallis Bird | The Forge | 9 Nov
Irish artist Wallis Bird is known for her strident, empowering LGBT anthems, and tonight the two-time Meteor Awards winner plays a London date in celebration of the release of her latest album ‘Home’, a collection of songs described as “as a ‘thank you letter’ to her muse and partner”.

It Is Easy To Be Dead | Trafalgar Studios | 9 Nov-3 Dec
This show had an acclaimed and award-nominated run at the Finborough Theatre, so it’s possible you saw it already, but if you didn’t now is the time. Young soldier Charles Sorley is killed in action during World War One and his parents are left with only his letters and poems to remember him by. Those words, accompanied by music and songs of the period, offer a portrait of one life cut short by the futility of war. See the venue website here for details.
