'Funny. Fast. Free' **** (ThreeWeeks). Each show sees four experienced acts performing. All our comedians have been hand-picked from an ethical fair trade farm where they've been grown in only the finest organic dog poo. All our fart jokes are sustainable due to our unique carbon off-set scheme. Each time one of us blows off, a tree is planted in Dagenham, Essex. 'Original, likeable, great timing and hilarious delivery' (Dan Kington, Danny's Comedy Club).

Amused Mooose Comedy Award Finalist Musical Comedian, Anesti Danelis, returns with a new hour of witty, ridiculous, and delightfully dark comedic songs that celebrate all the fun things in life like: identity crisis, stealing from work, inescapable rumours, alternative medicine, fearless youth, goats? and much more! So pull up a seat and let's ask life's biggest questions like 'why are we here?’ and ‘if people print their missing cat posters in black and white, do they even want to find their cats?’ in hopes to help us understand our existence and toe-tap that existential dread away. "Brill...

Funny Feckers, one of London's most popular comedy nights, is a compilation stand-up comedy show featuring the best acts from Ireland and beyond. It's a fun and friendly affair which brings people together through laughter and silliness, hosted by cheeky Irish comic Wes Dalton. 'An Irish charmer who has cheekiness and likeability down to a tee'. (Kentish Towner). At the 2017 Fringe, during some improvised crowd work, Wes managed to convince a crazy Dutchman to propose to his girlfriend on stage. The video went viral and the story made it into The Scottish Sun and Edinburgh Evening News....
