Stand-up comics are giving thanks with a Pork & Pickle Pie Thanksgiving Stand-Up Spectacular at The Scolthead, a pub in East London on November 25, 2010.
What's on the program besides pie, Here it is:

Comedy-goers pay just £5 for a ticket which includes the best of 2010’s stand-up circuit, a couple of surprise guests. A special gourmet Thanksgiving Pie and sweet potato mash will be available at the night."

In case you want to give the dish a try, I found a Recipe for Pork and Pickle Pie by Tallyrand (Hub UK).
The Yorkshire Dales Food Blog in The Pork Pie Challenge – who makes the best pork pie (2008) chose Kendalls of Pateley Bridge 'Pork & Pickle Pie' (pictured above).
Not sure what the perfect beer pairing could be.
