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.
On tonights bill are:

However, we would be happy to offer you another ticket to another Bear Funny show on us, should that rare event occur.
