So it’s Sunday in London – Londay, as the kids’d say (they really do) – and this is what’s on arts-wise in the capital today…


Stand Up For Sure Start feat Sara Pascoe/Ed Aczel/Norman Lovett, The Good Ship, 7 Jul (pictured)
The always-watertight Sara Pascoe (pictured) captains tonight’s charitable comic cargo for the love of kids’ initiative Sure Start, a love that’s shared by her shipmates, “anti-comedian par excellence” Ed Aczel and ‘Red Dwarf’ star Norman Lovett. And that’s it for today’s maritime gags. Details and tickets here.

Stand Up For Women feat Andi Osho/Lucy Porter/Josie Long/Tiffany Stevenson, Garrick Theatre, 7 Jul
Making their pro-femme declarations en masse this eve on Stand Up For Women‘s behalf are: Andi Osho, Lucy Porter, “London’s Lena Dunham” (not really, but we get what the Standard means), Josie Long and “frank and sensitive” tell-it-all Tiffany Stevenson. Details and tickets here.


Blondiefest feat Clem Burke Q&A, Institute Of Contemporary Arts, 7 Jul
One way or another, the ICA’s Blondiefest is almost over. Not quite, mind, because the band’s Clem Burke is in coversation tonight with Katie Puckrik, calling on Debbie Harry et al’s rise, death and revival; life in 1970s NYC; and new LP ‘Ghosts Of Download’. Details and tickets here.
