Angel Comedy

  • Free

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).

Mondays are either 'Bad Film Nights' or improv shows, Tuesday's show features an hour-long solo show or Edinburgh Fringe preview, and Wednesdays and Sundays are new act

Tony Law – Nonsense Overdrive

  • Critics choice

Time Out's favourite surrealist, Mr Tony Law, has already sold out a five-week run at the Soho Theatre, and now he's landing at the Udderbelly for five nights. This nuts-o Canadian comic is one of the finest and funniest stand-ups around, telling absurd stories, performing silly jokes and constantly deconstructing his own comedy.

Seann Walsh – The Lie-In King

  • Critics choice

Wild-haired stand-up Seann Walsh – star of 'Stand Up for the Week' and 'Live at the Apollo' – received a Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Award nomination for his solo show about, well, being lazy. He's matured (so to speak) into a talented observational comic, extracting big laughs from material about ordering takeaway, 24-hour off licenses and drinking. Boy oh boy, there's a lot of boozing material. Part of the Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Awards season at Soho Theatre

Comedy Store

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.

Susan Calman – The 68 Comeback Tour

  • Critics choice

Feisty Scot Calman – a regular on Radio 4's 'The News Quiz' and as seen on 'Have I Got News For You' and 'QI' – is back with a brand new show. Calman's always wonderfully funny, mixing silly (often cat-related) thoughts with political jabs.
