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

CABARET/COMEDY: Lynn Ruth Miller – 80!!! | Leicester Square Theatre | 25 Jan (pictured)
A long-time treasure both at the Edinburgh Fringe and on the nationwide cabaret trail at large, ‘Granny Gone Wild’ Lynn Ruth Miller is still at her peak, still telling it like it is in the ninth decade of life, and shattering old-age cliches with a lively, ribald take on sex, aging, sex, cooking, sex, medical problems, sex, exercise, sex, dating, sex, driving, and… well, you get the idea. Details and tickets here.

COMEDY: The NATYS – New Act Of The Year | Bloomsbury Theatre | 25 Jan
Bad-tempered telly man Arthur Smith MCs the grand final of this year’s NATYS, if not the cream of all the new act contests, then certainly the weirdest. 2014 winner Alistair Beckett-King headlines, with angry topical comedian Ashley Haden, likeable and fast-paced wit Jenny Collier, long-form comedian Chris Betts and laconic Aussie stand-up Nick Elleray amongst the live acts hoping to take his crown. Details and tickets here.

MUSIC/SPOKEN WORD: Burns Baby Burns | St John At Hackney | 25 Jan
Party-planning folk pod The Nest Collective and “immersive events experts” Adamotions lay on this old-style ceilidh in the style of the considerably stylish Rabbie Burns, which comes with face-painting, toast-making, ode-reading, haggis-piping and a garnish of foot-tapping songs from London’s own Ceilidh Liberation Front. Details and tickets here.
