TODAY IN LONDON: actress Leslie Manville, violin-playing pop hope Emily Wells, European circus co Enfila’t and political LOL machines Bridget Christie, Josie Long and Tiernan Douieb feature in the following TW-recommended events…

COMEDY: Lolitics, The Black Heart, 17 Dec
Fancy having your lulz seasoned with a little extra socio-political spice? Then Lolitics is the night you want. Amiable MC Chris Coltrane is on side to host tonight’s show, which features the topical stylings of funny pundits Josie Long, Robert Newman, Bridget Christie, Joe Wells and Tiernan Douieb. Details and tickets here.

MUSIC: Emily Wells, The Lexington, 17 Dec
Brooklyn soloist Emily Wells, whose niche skill is in mixing hip hop in with ghosting violin-pop (not easy, that), pays lip service to her ‘Mama’ LP live at the Lexington. Details and tickets here.

THEATRE: Ghosts, Trafalgar Studios, 17 Dec – 8 Mar 2014
A fine fit with critics’ and audiences’ tastes on its first surfacing at the Almeida earlier this year, Richard Eyre’s spin on Ibsen’s formidable ‘Ghosts’ stars Leslie Manville as a woman striving to rid herself and her son of his father’s sins. Details and tickets here.

THEATRE: Folds, Purcell Room, 17-31 Dec (pictured)
Suited to ages 7+, this hand-crafted circus show by European group Enfila’t has a live score and lots to look at too, with gadgets, paper scenery, moving stationery, and high-wire acrobatic trickery and cardboard box antics to boot. Details and tickets here.
