Ashby Comedy Club

Ashby Comedy Club by Funhouse takes place on the first Thursday of each month, as well as occasional extra shows, at The Lyric Rooms in Ashby De La Zouch.

It is regarded by many top acts as one of the best comedy club shows in the country and has featured Sarah Millican, Rhod Gilbert, Josh Widdicombe, Nina Conti and even a secret appearance by Jasper Carrott!

“Comedy club night in Ashby has become a permanent fixture in my social diary. Even when the last comedian has left the stage, I mostly still carry on laughing all the way home and talk about it for days afterwards!!” (Paul Andrew)

“We have been going to the Funhouse Comedy club in Ashby de la Zouch for the last seven years and always have an enjoyable evening. The range of acts is wide and varied from big names to up and coming acts. For those that have never sampled comedy in a friendly, relaxed and intimate venue … you will not be disappointed.” (Steve and Helen Gammage)
