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

COMEDY: Joe Wilkinson & guests | Bloomsbury Theatre | 22-24 Jan (pictured)
Mopey oddment Joe Wilkinson, off of ‘Him & Her’ and other things, headlines three of those ‘& friends’ kind of comedy nights, inviting pals in ‘Impractical Jokers’ star Paul McCaffery and ‘Irishman Abroad’ podcasting man Jarlath Regan along for what’s sure to be an… um, ‘wild’ ride. Details and tickets here.

DANCE: Plexus | Sadler’s Wells | 22-23 Jan
‘Plexus’ is a “jewel of optical theatre” (says Le Monde) created by France’s Olivier-nominated Aurélien Bory especially for classically-trained Japanese dancer Kaori Ito, in which the latter appears as if “entrapped by five thousand cords in a forest of brilliantly lit strings”. The show is part of this year’s silent yet deadline London International Mime Festival. Details and tickets here.

THEATRE: Broke | Greenwich Theatre | 22-24 Jan
Highly praised by TW London’s Edinburgh Fringe-based sister site ThreeWeeks, verbatim theatre company The Paper Birds alight with their latest play ‘Broke’. Like all their shows, it’s based on real interview transcripts, in this case on the topic of dwindling British finances; spanning the  realities of a cashless society, from displaced families, to living on beans on toast. Details and tickets here.
