US comedian Margaret Cho tackles maternity, sexuality, celebrity, drugs, politics, queerness and race in her outrageous routine ‘Mother’ at Bremen Teater this Saturday.Those expecting a light-hearted take on the foibles of motherhood are sure to be disappointed. The show, which Cho describes as “her edgiest to date”, spares nothing and no-one in its merciless tirade on the hypocrisy, venality, ignornace and narcissism implicit in contemporary western society, weaving elements of her experiences as a mother into the fabric of this hilarous, thought-provoking  show.

Christmas Night Market at Docken
The large Xmas market at Docken is, appropriately for the season, themed ’Make the World a Better Place’. If this is not enough to kindle your Christmas spirits, the pine and cinammon scents should do the rest. And while the market may extend into the night, it is a wholly child-friendly affair during the day. Especially on Friday, when Docken will house its own Saint Lucia procession. ALS

Sankt Hans Torv Christmas Market
Nørrebro’s hippest square will be populated by around 20 stalls selling decorations, toys, ceramics and all the usual useless pretty things. Should you leave empty-handed, do not worry, as you can explore the plethora of nearby second-hand stores instead. ALS

Rum Club
Far from a misnomer, this event is a cozy booze-soaked evening next Wednesday at Rum Club, the aptly named and well-reviewed bar in the heart of the city. Sample from a variety of over 300 rum blends and try to keep from falling over. Pirates welcome. JG
