John Robertson - The Dark Room

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

COMEDY: John Robertson – The Dark Room | Udderbelly | 15 May (pictured)
“You’ll struggle to find better than John Robertson’s show – or perhaps game show – ‘The Dark Room’”, said ThreeWeeks in this 5/5 review. Robertson appears as a floating head, guiding you through a mind-bending choose-your-own-adventure. There’s a grand prize of £1000 for anyone who can beat the game (but be prepared, only a handful ever have). Details and tickets here.

FILM: Science Flicktion | Chelsea Old Town Hall | 15-17 May
How often have you wondered if the science in films actually stacks up? Endlessly, if you’re anything like me. And therefore, this is the perfect event for both of us. Five films – ‘Alien’, ‘Apollo 13’, ‘Terminator 2’, ‘Shaun Of The Dead’ and ‘Good Will Hunting’ – will be screened over three days, with commentary on each from one scientist and one comedian to confirm authenticity or (more likely) tear it all to pieces. Details and tickets here.

MUSIC: Myrddin | RichMix | 15 May
A night of contemporary flamenco music and dance, featuring music from Belgian guitarist Myrddin’s latest album ‘Rosa de Papel’. He is joined by dancers Alicia Carrasco and Ana Llanes, plus special guest, Syrian kanun player Maya Youssef. Details and tickets here.
