From 24th May, comedy club “The Funny Side…Covent Garden” will be launching a second weekly show on Wednesdays.
The club, which currently runs every Sunday at The Corner Store, Wellington Street WC2 will be offering Wednesday night audiences the same top quality stand-up comedy that its Sunday shows have rapidly become known for, in addition to monthly improvised comedy shows.
David Bourn, The Funny Side’s Artistic Director said, “We’re thrilled to be launching a second weekly show at The Corner Store. We’ve been really pleased with the feedback we have received at the Sunday shows from both acts and audiences and its great to see the club developing”.
The first Wednesday will launch with The Funny Side’s monthly improvised comedy night, “Help!…Where’s My Script?” featuring Dave Bourn, Kylie Butler, Jonathan Cohen, Jane Colenutt and Grant Westbrook in addition to Alasdair Buddington visiting from the USA and Andy Fisher on piano.

About The Funny Side…
The Funny Side… is the brainchild of live comedy producers Tickets Please! who will be launching further Funny Side clubs at other venues in the near future. The clubs provide an upmarket yet friendly alternative to the usual London comedy experience and providing exciting bills; mixing top UK acts with the very best of visiting international talent.
“We aim to offer something a little different,” said David Bourn, The Funny Side’s Artistic Director. “Comedy clubs in London can be a mixed bag but with The Funny Side we really put a lot of effort into creating a great experience for both acts and audiences alike. The venues we choose are of great importance to us as we seek to provide the warm & theatrical atmosphere which we believe adds to a high quality comedy night out.”
