Can one imagine a life without humour? We at thesqua.re believe the answer is No. What better than to visit a good old comedy club in the city, to relieve yourself of the day’s stress and spend an evening in the company of an amazing comedian.
London happens is one of the best cities for comedy clubs in the world, with hundreds of them offering their platforms to legendary and upcoming stand-up comedians. From the funniest comedy gigs in North London, to the new-age stand-up comedy acts in Soho and Central-London, the city has a funny bone literally everywhere!
