A funny thing happens at the Forum...

Ricky Gervais and Comedy Store announce gigs in North London venue

North London venue The Forum is to host a string of socially distanced comedy gigs - including a warm-up show from Ricky Gervais and a series of Comedy Store line-ups with major headlines.

Gervais has announced a preview version of his next show, Supernature, will take place on October 27.

And Eddie Izzard, Bridget Christie, Ed Byrne, Nina Conti and Sara Pascoe are the headliners for a season under the Comedy Store’s banner, staged  by major tour promoter Live Nation.

Each of these will feature a line-up of comics, although the full bills have not yet been released.

The Forum is primarily a live music venue with a full capacity of 2,300, but has been used for occasional comedy gigs before.

Click here for the venue's schedule. Tickets for all the show go on sale from 10am on Friday.
