Stand-up comedy gigs in London
You can't beat a bit of good old-fashioned classic stand-up
We love every genre of comedy here at Time Out: sketch, improv, character comedy… you name it. But, when done well, nothing quite compares to the simplicity of a stage, a microphone and a suitably witty person to tie it all together.
The list below shows the next five 'classic stand-up' comedy gigs in London. To be honest, that's most comedy shows in London. But click here and you'll see a full list of stand-up gigs in the capital.

There’s no doubt about it, the Comedy Store is the daddy of all comedy clubs, and what most other gigs strive to be. Seemingly as old as London itself, the club has been instrumental in the growth of alternative comedy, and still to this day hosts stunning shows most nights of the week. At weekends they host conservative stand-up shows, with circuit stalwarts performing their tried-and-tested sets. See below for the latest line-ups. Check out our guide to the Comedy Store.
Stand-up from carefully selected open-mic comics and experienced acts testing new stuff or performing solid-gold sets – all for free (with a voluntary donation at the end, of course). The room gets absolutely rammed, so get down there early if you want to grab a seat. The club's now running seven nights a week. Mondays are improv shows, Tuesday's show features an hour-long solo show or Edinburgh Fringe preview, and Wednesdays and Sundays are new act and new material gigs. To check the latest line-ups, see the dates below.
