We Are Funny Project 5th Birthday Party with Headliner Adam Bloom

"Early Bird" tickets are £10 or you can take a chance and "Pay What You Want".

 

We're going to be 5 years old and already worrying about the "Birthday Bumps" anticipated from the good folk who regularly gig and laugh with the best grass roots comedy outfit in the country.

 

I am delighted to announce that Adam Bloom will headline the show, he is simply one of the best comedians in the country.

We've been in over a dozen venues across the capital and have happily settled at Farrs in Dalston for the last 2 years.

 

Come and help us celebrate by watching two world-class professional acts who have never performed with us at Farrs before, plus a special fast-fire edition of "We Are Funny Challenge".

 

There will be other surprise elements of fun, comedy and respect for the good people in this comedy community of ours. If you want to find out what they are, well, there's only one way to do it...

 

Come and join us. Laugh and play.

 

Buying one of the limited advance tickets guarantees a fine seat and you're all good... or come along and chuck into the bucket at the end of the night.

 

The "Early Bird" offer expires at 11pm on Friday 18th May and then the price jump to £15 in order to secure a seat.

We Are Funny People with Headliner Bethany Black

This will be the first in a series of "We Are Funny People" shows inspired by a Chortle article about diversity in comedy penned by our MC, the token straight white male that is Brendon Burns.

We're going to hear from a spectrum of cracking comics, delivering unique perspectives and brilliant comedy.

Headliner Bethany Black is a "goth lesbian transsexual recovering alcoholic" who is a kind of muse to the "We Are Funny People" series since being name-checked by Brendon in the original article.

American Tim Renkow has cerebral palsy and a wicked sense of humour, a clutch of comedy awards and TV credits, not least the superb "A Brief History of Tim" on BBC3.

Allyson June Smith is one of the finest comedy acts to depart Canada and bring the funny to the UK, a wonderful comedian we are delighted to have on this special bill.

The bill is packed with fabulously funny people yet one way or another are not all of these:

  • Male
  • Straight
  • White
  • Fully Able-Bodied

And if you're still not sure where we are coming from with this show, check this Huffington Post article, by Brendan Burns. Then come and join us for a wickedly funny, wildly diverse night of comedy in November.
