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.

7:45 PM19:45

We Are Funny Challenge "War On The War On Drugs" Edition

Your MC will be Alfie Noakes

The "Challenge" shows are an established We Are Funny Project format. A number of diverse acts are invited to perform a brand new 5 minute comedy set, with around 2 weeks notices to write, on the given theme. In this instance, "War on The War on Drugs".

This was originally planned to be the second show in the newly politicised Challenge series. Alas the first was cancelled due to calls from a "comedian" to ban it. Read all about it...

The show will be opened by a seasoned act delivering a non-themed comedy set to warm up the room and then it's a series of "Challenged" acts right up to the Headliner (also not Challenged).

Cast TBA (It will not be announced until the entire bill has been booked)

We Are Funny Project Christmas Party with headliner Scott Capurro

8:00 PM20:00

We Are Funny Project Christmas Party with headliner Scott Capurro

This is the We Are Funny Project Christmas Party.....there are many Christmas Parties, but this is our Christmas Party and she is called "Insanity!"

The ONLY act that I am naming in advance is Scott Capurro so you can see we bring you comedy brilliance (and danger). The rest of line-up/show will only be discovered on the night by coming along.

This party is for people of the We Are Funny Project, that is to say, acts who have performed at our shows, audiences who have come to watch and laugh. This is not for the general public, it's a massive (in) joke for Project people and our friends.

There will be special twists, fun and games, variety and seasonal good will. Some of the show will be very audience interactive and some you can sit back and watch pure pro acts blow your socks off with their funny.

The show will wrap about 10pm and then hanging out and toasting Christmas together, is encouraged.

Tickets are £10 and will be wonderful value, rest assured.
