Fantasia - Live In Concert

Hey, who knew, it’s Reptile Awareness Day today, a time for compassion towards our cold-blooded co-planet-dwellers. If, on that basis, you’d like to stroke a snake, or perhaps look a komodo dragon square in its beady eye, London Zoo has a programme of daily events to suit those very desires. But if scaly lizards just aren’t your thing, why not consider the following warm and mammalian culture choices…


Marcus Brigstocke – The Brig Society, Rose Theatre, 21 Oct
The great (and good) Marcus Brigstocke proposes his socio-political comic manifesto in typically articulate terms, adding analogies for the less initiated. Based on ThreeWeeks’ recommending the routine as an “eloquent and informed hour of vitriolic Coalition-bashing, peppered with an array of clever and laugh-out-loud punchlines”, you might like to book tickets via this link.

Tony Law – Sunday Special, Up The Creek, Greenwich, 21 Oct
It’s a great pleasure to once again be talking about ThreeWeeks cover-star Tony Law, who’s headlining an unquestionably fine line in stand-up at this evening’s Up The Creek. Seeking to surpass Law’s brand of ‘Maximum Nonsense’ will be as-seen-on-TV Norwegian comic Daniel Simonsen, and resident MC Elis James. Info and telephone bookings via

Voodoo Nights, Lyric Hammersmith, 21 Oct
The Lyric Hammersmith reinstalls its Voodoo Nights as part of a new season of live comedy, curating a roster featuring co-hosts James Acaster, Nick Helm and Josh Widdicombe, with Milton Jones, Sara Pascoe and David Trent appearing at successive events. Details and tickets here.


Disney’s Fantasia – Live In Concert, Royal Albert Hall, 21 Oct (pictured)
The London Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by maestro John Mauceri, will live-score screened excerpts from Walt Disney’s ‘Fantasia’ and its millennial upscale, ‘Fantasia 2000’. Matinee and evening tickets are available here.
