Comedy Central 'Friends' Fest London Will See Sitcom's Sets And Props Faithfully Recreated


Comedy Central 'Friends' Fest London Announces More Tickets As Demand Surprises Organisers

An exhibition of sets and props from comedy series 'Friends' to be held in east London next month sold out in record time on Wednesday.

Comedy Central says it will painstakingly recreate the set of Monica and Chandler's apartment, which was home to all of the main characters at some point during the sitcom's run.

Visitors will be free to roam the set, standing in the space used for classic scenes like Joey's Thanksgiving challenges, Phoebe's annoyance at PBS, and the appearance of the Holiday armadillo.

There will be a New York courtyard set, and a café based on Central Perk. LazyBoy recliners similar to Joey and Chandler's will also be on display - with visitors able to kick back and relax just like in the show.

Organisers are also hoping to display a host of props and other memorabilia familiar to the the show's legions of fans.

The event, named FriendsFest, will last five days and be held at The Boiler House in Brick Lane, east London.

Tickets were on sale for £5 each on Comedy Central's website on Wednesday afternoon - but fans had to act quickly. Tickets reportedly sold out in less than 13 minutes.

Comedy Central UK is thought to be preparing another sale of tickets, though this has yet to be confirmed.

We'll keep you updated on any further sales of tickets, stay tuned to our Twitter and Facebook page.

Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer, Matt Le Blanc, Lisa Kudrow and Matthew Perry stared in the series for 10 seasons between 1994 and 2004.
