FSU Christmas Comedy Special 2023

December 20, 2023 at 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm GMT

The FSU Christmas Comedy Special


Wednesday 20th December, please arrive by 7pm.

Backyard Comedy Club, Bethnal Green, London

Round up your comedy-loving friends and family for The FSU Christmas Special, a one night only extravaganza of comedy with a fabulous line-up.

In association with Comedy Unleashed – the home of free-thinking comedy.

Our Master of Ceremonies for the evening is FSU favourite, Dominic Frisby. Dominic will be joined on stage by Daniel O’Reilly, Tania EdwardsAlistair Williams and Triggernometry’s Francis Foster.


Dominic Frisby

Dominic is a libertarian version of Billy Bragg (with a sense of humour). He tells jokes, he sings songs and he will be our excellent compere for the evening. Creator of internet sensation ’17 million f*** offs’ and writer of hilarious songs that satirise our bonkers culture, including the recent ‘Gonna Mary Gary’.

Daniel O’Reilly

Daniel had his ITV show cancelled back in 2014, when he was known as Dapper Laughs. Recently he’s been selling out shows with his new stand-up comedy and been a special guest at the Tyson Fury after fight party at the O2.

Alistair Williams

Excluded from most comedy clubs and banned from YouTube, Alistair Williams is utterly counter-cultural and bloody hilarious. Alistair did a gig at the London club recently and we were inundated with requests to put him on again. Here’s clip of Alistair at the London club

Tania Edwards

Tania is an utterly middle-class sceptic of middle-class sensibilities and ‘right-thinking’ groupthink. She is a popular comic at the London Comedy Unleashed club.

Francis Foster

Francis is the co-host of popular YouTube and podcast TRIGGERNomentry and guest of GB New’s ‘Free Speech Nation’. He’s a top stand-up comic too. Here’s a clip of Francis at the London club
