And the LDN-based events the ThisWeek team is tipping today are….

COMEDY/SPOKEN WORD: The Comedian’s Bookshelf | The Book Club | 18 May
The Oxford English Dictionary (definitely) defines The Comedian’s Bookshelf as ‘an edu-taining Sunday repast of learned and text-based wise-cracks from your fave comics’, and who am I, or today’s Book Club gang – Robin Ince, Evelyn Mok, Rosie Wilby, Ben Target and Nat Luurtsema – to argue with that. Details and tickets here.

COMEDY: Romesh Ranganathan – Rom Com | Southbank Centre | 18 May
Primetime sad act Romesh Ranganathan, aka the new Jack Dee, recreates his brilliantly bleak ‘Rom Com’ solo show to the midst of this year’s East Asian arts and lifestyle fest Alchemy. Details and tickets here.

MUSIC: Guided By Voices + Riding The Low + Band Of Pricks + Stewart Lee MC | The Lexington | 18 May
LDN-based label Fire Records celebrates its thirtieth anniversary via this Stewart Lee-MC’d  live release party for Ohio-based alt-rock clan Guided By Voices’s second LP of 2014, ‘Cool Planet’, which is out 19 May.
