Comedy at Artsdepot

We’re fortunate to have Artsdepot nearby in North Finchley for a broad range of concerts, exhibitions, family entertainment and some first-class comedy talent. Early in 2020 before lockdown we managed to catch Jo Brand here and this autumn things are resuming with a great selection including stand up, pub quizzing and political commentary. In these tough times we need a few laughs, don’t we?

Following sold out shows from David Baddiel and Paul Chowdhry in early September, here are some highlights of what’s coming up.
