The date next to the comment is a link to the URL that you want.

Clicking on the link will set the URL anchor to the comment, it also gets highlighted and scrolled into view. Then copy that URL from the address bar and share it. Or just open the context menu with a right-click on that link and select "Copy link location" (the name of this option probably differs between browsers).
