There’s no doubt about it: The Comedy Store (1a Oxendon St, SW1Y 4EE) is the daddy of all comedy clubs. What started out as a room above a strip club in the late ’70s has grown to become the most famous and respected brand in live comedy.

Back in the 1980s, the club was fundamental in the growth of the alternative scene, providing an antidote to the now ‘old school’ mainstream stand-ups of the day and helping nurture the careers of fresher-faced future stars Alexei Sayle, Rik Mayall, Adrian Edmonson, Ben Elton and French and Saunders.

To this day, the club still offers the best in alternative stand-up, topical and improvised comedy almost every day of the year. In a city that’s packed with top comedy clubs, the Store still remains the finest in London.
