Your what's on guide to the top events in London this week.

Jukebox Story

A night of comedy, music and improvisation that’s inspired by pop songs – an eclectic assortment, but a winning one.

The theme of this show is ‘summer hits’, so any song that references the sunny season or has a tangible link to the months of beach and barbies is on the cards – Boys Of Summer; the Beach Boys – with London’s writers submitting story ideas to be performed by regular hosts Steve Keyworth and Stephanie Gerra.

They call it a “mixtape of tall tales that take you to a time, a place, and a hairstyle”. Just need some sun now! 

£6. June 27, 7.30pm The Harrison,
28 Harrison Street, WC1H 8JF  
Tube | King’s Cross

Bowie Fest

This event from the mental folk at Weirdos Comedy began as a spoof of the V&A’s (wholly unofficial) Mr Bowie love-in and has since blossomed into so much more, with a Not The V&A spoof exhibition, interactive comedy musical show, The David Bowie Experience, a comedy tribute to The Thin White Duke and a disco.
