****Check out our Comedy Pizza Special: £8.50 one show ticket + any pizza on the Finsbury's menu AND a glass of house wine.****
Here is the format for our weekly show: We open with an awesome Guest MC host, new material from a Pro Act, some short middle spots and a Headliner Pro Comedian doing a 20-25 minute set including some new material, seperated by a couple of breaks, but all over by 10.30pm, perfect for a school night. The setting is the Finsbury's lovely live room, so you can also enjoy cocktails, craft beers and handmade pizzas.
Opening the show is MATTHEW OSBORN - Winner of So You Think You're Funny in 2002, and English Comedian Of The Year in 2009.

Our Host MC is Tottenham's finest, TONY MARRESE. Tony is a brilliant MC and has been hosting shows all over London and further afield since he started out on the comedy circuit almost five years ago. Expect to strike up a conversation with him, as he loves to take you on a journey through his imagination via accent, stories and some visual mimes often set off by just one word or phrase.

We also have a couple of open spots from up and coming acts Ella Murray and John Pendal who will bring along their A+ Game of tried and tested solid gold material with a new bit thrown in for good measure.
