One of the East End’s major leisure venues is having a big laugh with its plans to reopen its rooftop to the public after lockdown. 

Tobacco Dock has teamed up with the Comedy Store to bring stand-up comics to its Skylight venue in Wapping.

The comedians will no doubt be mocking the news on the opening night on May 19, with stand-ups like Zoe Lyons from TV’s hit Mock the Week comedy quiz show, Ria Lina as MC and Hal Cruttenden.  

It is the first time Tobacco Dock is staging entertainment with talent from the UK comedy circuit for a run of open-air rooftop performances.

There will be food and drink served, including cocktails by Skylight's mixologist Sebastian Hollingworth.
