Angel Comedy offers free stand up and comedy shows every night in Islington, London. They are a community-oriented association with a mission to help comedians and artists by providing them a platform to express themselves, but also space, advice, workshops, podcasts and much more.
Four years ago I painted the front of their new venue, the Bill Murray pub, when it was just opening. Time for a refresh! The whole front and side of the building have now been included in the redesign. It features 6 portraits of British and international comedians (see details below) with a colourful background. It took about 8 days from the first outlines to complete the full mural.
