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 Febuary 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.

Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.

Featuring

Scott Capurro

Scott Capurro appearing at this event

This San Franciscan comedian has become a favourite on the UK circuit in the last few years, a regular at the Edinburgh Fringe and has appeared in several films such as 'Mrs Doubtfire'. He delivers brutally honest, funny descriptions of life as a gay man in an all American family. Not for the delicate! '... enthralling... electric... deliciously catty' (The Guardian).
