Every Wednesday at The Finsbury, Bear Funny Comedy bring you some of UK's best comedians trying out brand new material.
In Jan 2020 we are partnering with Leicester Comedy Festival to showcase professional comedians heading to the festival to share some of their latest jokes. England's biggest comedy festival runs from 5-23 February this year and we totally recommend a trip to the Midlands!
At this show you will see three acts performing for thirty minutes each separated by a break to explore our excellent bar, food and facilities at the Finsbury.
On Wednesday 22nd Jan we feature:
