2020 Shows – A NOTE REGARDING THE CURRENT PANDEMIC & RESTRICTIONS ON SOCIAL GATHERING. It is with huge regret we have postponed our March to June shows. It will probably be necessary to postpone future shows and we will keep you informed. The safety of our audience, acts, volunteers and members at our venue is paramount to us and we don’t take this decision lightly – since we started out in 2005 we have never pulled a gig, but this is a time to consider and look out for others.

With this in mind – we are going to stream online shows where possible on the show dates below via our Facebook Page – click here. 

Also as our comedians are mainly professional acts who rely on live comedy work for their living – we have set up a GoFundMe page which we will share with our online shows. Take care of yourselves and each other – can’t wait until we’re all together again. Hazel, Wivenhoe Funny Farm
