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

Piff The Magic Dragon and The Dog Who Knows | Underbelly Festival | 15 Aug (pictured)
Looks like Piff is performing this show at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe tomorrow, so that will be a quick turnaround! Anyway, if you won’t have the chance to partake of edfringe fare this summer, here’s your chance to see one of those shows here in London. He’s a long term TW favourite, and has, I suspect, converted many a Fringe-goer who didn’t think they were interested in a magic show. Head this way for more.

Bec Hill – I’ll Be Bec | Soho Theatre | 14-18 Aug
And now another TW fave that we first discovered via myriad shows up in the Scottish Capital, but who won’t, as far as I’m aware, be performing up there this year. This sounds like exactly my kind of show: “Bec Hill went to the future so that you don’t have to! What are we wearing? Are robots in control? Was this show worth seeing? All these questions and more* answered in this brand new hour of stand-up! *There will be a Q&A element to the show for anyone with pressing queries.” Info right about here.

Boxes | The Cockpit | 13-16 Aug
Yay, back to Camden Fringe for this, a piece of postmodern and great sounding physical theatre: “TJ and Toni are clearing out the house of their estranged father after his recent death. TJ is organised and capable. Toni is angry, impatient and eager to be somewhere, anywhere else. They learn that human lives are never simple enough to fit neatly into the boxes we try to put them in.” Details here.
