TODAY IN LONDON Andy Parsons, Jessica Raine, Mac Miller and Saint Etienne’s Bob Stanley all feature in the following TW-recommended events…

COMEDY: Andy Parsons – I’ve Got A Shed, Bloomsbury Theatre, 3 Oct
Brash ‘Mock The Week’ baldy (and we say that with the greatest affection… and because his head is hairless) Andy Parsons has a shed, and he’s damned if anyones going to stop him from talking all about it. Catch him doing just that tonight at the Bloomsbury. Details and tickets here.

FILM: Yeah Yeah Yeah, Barbican, 3-24 Oct
So, Saint Etienne’s Bob Stanley has curated a mini-season of musically-significant films to mark the release of his new essay in ‘The Story Of Modern Pop’, ‘Yeah Yeah Yeah’. Starting tonight with a ScreenTalk with Stanley and a look at Alan Lewens’ ‘Arena’ doc ‘The Very Strange Story Of The Legendary Joe Meek’, it’ll go on to feature African festival film ‘Soul Power’ and Milos Forman’s Carly Simon-starring ‘Taking Off’. Details and tickets here.

MUSIC: Mac Miller, The Forum, 3 Oct
Having hit the big time with his new LP ‘Watching Movies With The Sound Off’, switched-on rap freshman Mac Miller dials it up, live, tonight. Details and tickets here.

THEATRE: Roots, Donmar Warehouse, 3 Oct – 30 Nov (pictured)
‘Call The Midwife’ actress Jessica Raine plays Beatie Bryant, a late 1950s farm girl on the brink of an ‘awakening’ as she awaits her socialist beau, in this, the midpoint in a trilogy of scripts from playwright Arnold Wesker. Details and tickets here.
