Pleasance Theatre, London

4.4
#450 of 1,204 in Nightlife in London
The Pleasance Theatre Islington has been one of the most exciting Fringe theatres in London since it opened its doors in 1995, providing a launch pad for some of the most memorable productions and most renowned practitioners of the past decade and staying true to its mission of providing a platform for the talent of the future.

Pleasance Islington plays host to some of the biggest names in comedy and the likes of Michael McIntyre, Russell Brand, Micky Flanagan, Mark Watson, Adam Hills and Mark Thomas have all regularly complimented our comedy programme.

Pleasance Edinburgh opened as part of the 1985 Festival Fringe with two theatres facing onto a deserted courtyard-come-car-park at an unfashionable eastern end of Edinburgh’s old town.

Twenty-eight seasons later the Pleasance has become one of the biggest and most highly respected venues at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, with an international profile and a network of alumni that reads like a Who’s Who of contemporary comedy, drama and entertainment.

  • Great little entertaining “feel good” show. Tony Hawks and the cast were really brilliant - funny, engaging, honest and at the end of the night just makes you feel that we are all in the same...  more »

  • All seats have a great view of the stage and are extremely comfortable. The bar is small but well designed. We had a lovely evening.
