Pleasance Theatre

Intrinsically linked to Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the Pleasance has an outpost in Islington as well as a home in Edinburgh come August's Fringe fest. While its Edinburgh venues (26 in total) come alive during the summer, the Islington Pleasance plugs away all year round turning out new productions and hosting hot comic talent. Graham Norton, Al Murray, Harry Enfield, Bill Bailey and Harry Hill have all made regular appearances here while comic wannabes are often found trying out new material before heading up north. Theatre productions tend toward the innovative and socially pertinent with mixed results.

The Pleasance has brought me so much joy in the form of hilarious comedy for incredible prices over the years!

Its always a pleasure to go to the pleasance, with such a fun and relaxed vibes... and that's before you even step into a show! With great programming, its a fantastic hidden gem that I couldn't recommend higher!

Great shows, great atmosphere and all at affordable theatre prices. The bar manager Dan is a great host and can really add to the night out.

The pleasance is one of the gems of North London! 
Whilst it is a little tucked away, all performances are in an intimate setting and couldn't be priced better. I have seen Dara O'Briain, Josh Widdicombe, Shaun Keaveny, Jeremy Paxman Sean Lock and Alan Davies here, each for under £10! 
Whilst I tend to stick to comedy here, I have seen a couple of fantastic plays too, and around Christmas time, they have some lovely shows on for the little ones too. 
I have always found the theatre to attract a nice crowd too which adds to the laid back experience. 
Below the theatre is a lovely pub named 'Shilibeer's' which is spacious, well stocked and edgy. 
One of my favourite places in London!
