Sunday: Showstoppers will make up a musical before your very eyes, if you take your eyes to Charing Cross Theatre (7pm, £27.50 / £17.50).
Monday: You can’t really see Phill Jupitus at the Soho Theatre tonight cos the room will be completely dark. But hearing him should be good enough (9.30pm, £12.50).
Tuesday: Comedians Helen Arney and Helen Keen join women scientists and engineers for Ada Lovelace Day at IET London. Find out about particle physics, robots and why fridges hum (6.30pm, £10 / £5).
Thursday: We don’t know who Tom Allen has as guests for his chat show at the Comedy Cafe Theatre, but previous ones have included Sarah Millican, Matt Smith and Miles Jupp. Don’t blame us if it’s someone you’ve never heard of (6pm, £5).
Saturday: David Baddiel has been testing out new material at the Soho Theatre all week, so he should have some of the rougher bits ironed out by now (9.15pm, £10). (If you want to see his former comedy partner Rob Newman, head to Lolitics at the Black Heart on Tuesday.)
