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!
This venue gives a platform for New talent, actors,comedians and other performers. An intimate and welcoming space, audiences always feel comfortable here.
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.
