2Funky Comedy


2Funky Arts first ventured into the world of UK comedy in 2009, with an event as part of Leicester Comedy Festival at The Peepul Centre.

Since then, we have promoted numerous events, bringing comedians of Black, Asian and Ethnic Minorities to the fore, spreading hilarity along the way.
