For one night only, The Covid Arms comes to the Pleasance, London.

After a sensationally successful 19 online shows, The Covid Arms presents a raucous evening of live and livestreamed stand-up from the brightest and best of the UK comedy scene, all in the name of supporting comics and the Trussell Trust.

The Covid Arms has become a rare success story of 2020, starting off life as a Whatsapp group of friends, and turning into a popular internet pub that has welcomed everyone from Frankie Boyle to Nish Kumar, Harry Hill to Lolly Adefope. In total, the gigs have raised over £110,000 for the food bank charity The Trussell Trust.

For the first time, the gig is welcoming a large (socially distanced) audience to the iconic Pleasance in London, as well as selling livestream tickets so there’s the option of watching at home with your (Christmas) slippers off too.

Our landlady Kiri Pritchard Mclean will be welcoming some acts live at the Pleasance, and some will be streaming in from their living rooms all over the country.

Expect big laughs, signature competitions and a smorgasbord of excellent comedians, including some of your favourites from TV.
