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

Swing Sister Swing | Arcola Theatre | 29 Jul
More Grimeborn, and hurrah, this sounds good: a cabaret-inspired show celebrating female choreographers and musicians, featuring pieces created and inspired by jazz-greats Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone and Billie Holiday. Expect lindy hop, swing dance, vintage burlesque, song and comedy, and a line up of performers that includes Cat Foley, Tine ‘Machine’ Gatchalian, Nancy Hitzig, Katie Stotter, and The Dinahs. See this page here for details.

Eat Sleep Shit Shag and Two Faced Bitchin | Old Red Lion Theatre | 29 Jul
We’re coming to a close now with all the edfringe previews because the Scottish culture fest kicks off in just a couple of days time. But at the moment there’s still stuff to see, and two tips worth today from us, in fact. Here’s the first, a double bill from Richard Hunt and Abbie Murphy, with slightly grim titles but hopefully quality content. ‘Two Faced Bitchin’ is “a high octane, 80’s inspired, dark comedy sketch show” and ‘Eat Sleep Shit Shag’ sees Murphy telling a life history “which took her from corduroys and football shirts, to feathers, tits and teeth”.

How Deep Is Your Duff | The Bunker Theatre | 29 Jul (pictured)
A second Edinburgh preview, as promised, and this one’s from one of our favourite acts. A purveyor of clowning and stream-of-consciousness comedy, delivered to make socially conscious points to brilliant effect. If you head to the venue website to look at this listing you’ll see a whole host of quotations from extremely complimentary reviews, and it’s all justified, because Helen Duff is completely fabulous and excellently funny.
