Top Five Things to do in the UAE This Week

1. See Scouse Comic John Bishop!
THU 29 MAY

One of the UK’s top comics is heading our way, fresh from filming a three-part TV series Down Under. While there, he crashed his bike and had to milk venomous snakes, so surely the rudest heckler can’t be much worse. “I’m delighted to have been asked to perform in Dubai and very much looking forward to performing my first show in the Middle East,” John says. “I’ve visited the city before and really enjoyed my time there, so I can’t wait to get onstage at the World Trade Centre – bring on 29 May!” INFO: Doors 7pm for 9pm start; regular tickets Dhs300, premium tickets Dhs500, VIP tickets, Dhs800; Sheikh Rashid Hall, Dubai World Trade Centre; www.timeouttickets.com

2. Catch Cape Town DJ Craig De Sousa
FRI 30 MAY

Craig’s fusion of deep and deep tech house has been described as “organic sound with interesting changes” by promoter Infusion, which has brought him over to headline its weekly club night House of Afrika. INFO: Free, 4pm-3am, happy hour 5pm-8pm, The Dek on 8, Media One Hotel, Dubai Media City, 04 427 1000, table reservations rsvp@infusion.ae, more details at www.infusion.ae

3. Watch a Play ‘Go Wrong’ at Souk Madinat Jumeirah!
MON 5-WED 7 JUN

Fawlty Towers meets Agatha Christie’s Poirot in The Play that Goes Wrong, a smash-hit comedy direct from London’s West End. A college amateur dramatic society tries to stage a Gatsby-era murder mystery but, as the title suggests, everything that can go awry does. The production’s been brought to Dubai by the UK’s Mischief Theatre Company, and we hope the cast and crew won’t suffer any mishaps themselves during its three-day run. Break a leg, and all that… INFO: 8pm, balcony Dhs160, stalls Dhs180, stalls (first four rows) Dhs200, Madinat Theatre, Souk Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai, www.madinattheatre.com, book at www.timeouttickets.com
