COMEDY: Ria Lina – Thpethial, Leicester Square Theatre, 12-14 Nov (pictured)
Plain-speaking Ria Lina, who herself has Asperger’s, riffs light-heartedly on the significance and meaning of “special”, side-stepping PC gibberish and enlivening her views by singing them and using ‘visual aids’. Details and tickets here.

COMEDY: A Joke Too Far – Stand Up For Burma, Hackney Picturehouse, 12 Nov
Showing that one really can’t put a price on justice, pro-freedom comedians Richard Herring, Naz Osmanoglu and ThreeWeeks Editor’s Award-winner Alexis Dubus (and additional TBA acts) ‘do it’ for Amnesty International, who’ll be taking 100% of tonight’s totally reasonably £12.50 cost-of-admission. Details and tickets here.

DANCE: Wim Vandekeybus – booty Looting, Queen Elizabeth Hall (Southbank Centre), 12-13 Nov
