Top Comedy Clubs in London
What's a cheeses favourite place in London? Red Leicester Square! Cue tumbleweed. We might stick to sightseeing tours instead of comedy, though here are some places in London that will guarantee to make you laugh!
Based in the Phoenix Pub in Cavendish Square, the Old Rope claims to "fire untested gold at you like you're purpose-bred lab-rats", which means that you get brand new material, but also the classic stand-up experience. With well-known stand-up names, circuit regulars and the best newcomers testing their material, you'll be sure to hit every funny bone within you. You might even see a big name or two dropping by to watch!
That start of the week feeling is a thing of the past with Happy Mondays performance at the Amersham Arms in New Cross! Every fortnight the 300-seat music venue plays host to a comedy masterclass that has included TV regulars and big names including Josh Widdicombe and Milton Jones. So for the very best one-liners in London, get yourself along!
For some 'appeeling' comedy, get yourself to the Bedford pub in Balham to get your funny on every Friday and Saturday at one of the friendliest comedy clubs in London, the Banana Cabaret. The Bedford has quite the resemblance to the TARDIS, as behind the humble bar sits a warren of cavernous function room. With over 30 years of hosting comedy, you won't be disappointed, so the next time you're in the Clapham area, pop into The Bedford for the perfect cosy comedy performance!
With two locations, one in the Camden Head in Camden, and The Bill Murray in Islington, the Angel Comedy Club serves up the heavenly comedy fest you're looking for in London every night of the week for free! Originally a one night a week event, it has turned into a Comedy Institution with new talent and big names plying their trade in the clubs. On a Monday it's improv shows, Tuesday nights feature an hour-long solo show, and Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays include spots from new acts and comics testing new material. Whilst on Fridays and Saturdays comics perform their slickest sets, all killer, no filter!
Based in the trendy West End, the Piccadilly Comedy Club London has two fantastically funny locations at Tiger Tiger and The Comedy Pub providing excellent comedy nights in a superb atmosphere. With three to four comedians per show with a mix of circuit stalwarts and talented rising stars, you'll be sure to find the comedy performance that will tickle your laughter.
Perhaps the capital's top comedy club, The Comedy Store near Piccadilly and Leicester Square, started life above a strip club in 1979, but these days is pretty much the most famous and respected brand in live comedy. The venue has seen former fresh-faced comedians include Rik Mayall, Adrian Edmonson, Alexei Sayle and French and Saunders perform there, so you could very well see the next big name! With top quality stand-ups, topical shows and improvised comedy almost every day of the year, it's packed with funny gags!
