The Great Willy Waddle

 

Cancer in any form is no joke and though the majority of us do our best to stay informed and give to Cancer Research Charities Penile Cancer still seems to sit in the background.

On the day you’ll receive your inflatable penis costume upon entry (alternative costume colours available please email to enquire), you’ll then run, walk or waddle your way to the finish line all in the name of charity.

Never before has it been more acceptable to be a penis :0)

The Potato Project

 

I used to eat jacket potatoes with a drizzle of olive oil, not baked beans or ever butter, olive oil, very odd and not very imaginative, thankfully the guys at The Potato Project are here to help, especially if you’re failing at food like I am. 

Available on the menu combinations such as Autumn wild mushrooms + spinach + blue cheese & truffle oil, Thai chicken + coconut & lime curry and The naked potato with butter (just encase you’re a fan of the classics) all available on both sweet and your classic jacket potato.

 

Also available is a side of Sweet potato hummus with pear, Gin & Tonic ice Cream and coffee which, I think, is flirting with me???

27 Noel Street, Soho, London W1F 8GZ

99 George Street, Unit 30 Boxpark Croydon, CR0 1LD

London Improv Theatre

I cannot act, there isn’t an inch of me that should be on stage or in front of a camera (unlike a friend of mine who is A brilliant actor, I hate her!), the thought of improv literally scares me into a sweaty panic attack, but there’re those crazy bastards who thrive on that type of adrenaline, step forward the London Improv Theatre.

 

 

Established in 2016 by Jake Lyons, the theatre plays host to Improv performances such comedy, sketches, music and even magic, oh how I love me a bit of magic.

A number of performances are on over September including an acoustic showcase (showcase performances are on the first Saturday of each month) , ‘Scared Scriptless’ where the participates improvise scenes based on audience suggestions and ‘The Magicians Showcase’ which I may well attend myself (love me a bit of magic).

If you’re after an evening of impromptu theatre, or in the mood to joy in yourself, pop on over to Swiss Cottage, it won’t disappoint.

 

 

The Time:  Varies

The Place:   London Improv Theatre, 104-A Finchley Road, Londnon, NW3 5JJ
