Stewart Lee

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

COMEDY: Stewart Lee – A Room With A Stew | Soho Theatre | 29 Jun – 3 Jul (pictured)
Stewart Lee continues his run of work in progress shows in preparation for the next series of ‘Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle’. Worth attending because it is Stewart Lee. Details and tickets here.

EVENT: Wimbledon | The All England Lawn Tennis Club | 29 Jun – 12 Jul
There are few things as British as Wimbledon. Queuing. Eating strawberries and cream. Waiting for rain to pass. Shouting the name of a person because they are British. Being shushed for shouting. Being vaguely interested in a sport for a set period of time. It is our entire culture compressed into two weeks. Details and tickets here.

EXHIBITION: Summer Exhibition | Royal Academy | 9 Jun – 17 Aug
Packed full of work by emerging and established artists across a variety of media,The Royal Academy’s Summer Exhibition has been held every year since 1769, and they’re not about to stop now. Imagine if they just took a year off suddenly. For one thing we’d have to work out what the largest open submission exhibition in the world was, because currently this is it. Details here.
