Kim Wilde

TODAY IN LONDON pop icon Kim Wilde, sketch mavericks Rory & Tim, and a pack of Christmas-hating comics feature in the following TW-recommended events…

COMEDY: The Comedy Roast Of Christmas, Canal Cafe Theatre, 21 Dec
A Santa’s sack-ful of comedians and singers – whose names are still under wraps – giving Christmas a good grilling, ‘ripping the piss’ out of festive schmaltz in an anti-Xmas charity cabaret, and giving the night’s takings over to The Actors Benevolent Fund. Details and tickets here.

COMEDY: Rory & Tim Present Their Comedic Peers And Superiors, Hen & Chickens Theatre, 21 Dec
Leaders of the new(ish) guard of sketch acts, ThreeWeeks favourites Rory & Tim workshop untried material in irreverent intervals between experienced and rehearsed stand-up sets by their comedic friends and betters. Details and tickets here.

MUSIC: Kim Wilde’s Christmas Party, Shepherd’s Bush Empire, 21 Dec (pictured)
It’s a well known fact that ‘Kids In America’ pin-up Kim Wilde loves a Christmas sing-song, which is why she’s so well qualified to take the lead in this mass hymnal celebrating her new festive LP, ‘Wilde Winter Songbook’, and many, many Xmas hits past. Nik Kershaw, too, is along for the (sleigh) ride. Details and tickets here.
