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

White | Ovalhouse | 20-22 Jul
A show devised and performed by Koko Brown, consisting of spoken word and live vocal looping, and addressing the concept of mixed race privilege and what it means to be mixed in contemporary Britain. It’s part of a ‘Colour Trilogy’ of forthcoming shows, along with ‘Grey’, which will explore mental health issues for people of colour, and ‘Pink’, which will look at sexuality and gender. For more info on ‘White’, see this page here.

Pappy’s Flatshare Slamdown | Old Queen’s Head | 20 Jul
The Laugh Out London Comedy Festival started on Monday, but this is the first show I was able to find that wasn’t sold out, so I had to delay mentioning it until today. I am struggling to understand, however, quite why it isn’t also sold out, given that it involves the always-excellent Pappy’s. Is it because it’s a podcast recording? Well, anyway, here are the details, for those who like to be entertained, and here’s a link to the other festival events.

John Robertson – Arena Spectacular | Soho Theatre | 20-22 Jul
Another purveyor of excellence, now, a performer we like enough to have given a lovely award up at the Edinburgh Fringe, where his shows have won much acclaim, as well as what you would probably call cult status. Don’t ever miss a chance to see him in action, I am warning you. See the venue website here to book.
