The Goodfather offers a chance for the most interesting and creative new acts to perform at a gig run to a very high professional level, with one of the best comedy crowds in London. Pro headliners like Simon Munnery and Daniel Simonsen are crowd favourites plus Tom Ward curates an always interesting and well balanced night.

Head-fuck genius Phil Kay is joined on his Goodfather ship by a bill of rising comedy stars. September 2's bill includes circuit legend Terry Alderton, loony stand-up Tim Shishodia, the brilliantly bizarre Mark Silcox, Thanyia Moore and mad character comic Ali Brice.

Everyone needs The Goodfather! Without a doubt my favourite monthly comedy night in London. Consistently excellent! Lovely room, exceptionally selected line ups full of beautiful crackbrained absurdities lead by the unique majesty of Phil Kay. I love it and so should you.
The Good Father is amazing! We were going to go to the Comedy Store but decided to give it a try next door and are so glad we did. Phil Kay is fantastic and all the acts were top notch. Although billed as new/up and coming acts, the only hint that they were anything but seasoned pro's was their originality and fresh approach. We will be going every month from now on.
Loved it. Laughed and laughed. One of the best comedy nights in London. Am going again and taking more friends.
There are so many good acts on this bill, and for only £5 in central London you won't find a more bang for your buck. GO.
The Goodfather is a brilliant comedy club, friendly,busy, top acts and lots of different styles of comedy,ace alternative acts serving something different and cheap as chips, had a fantastic night here,highly recommended, with the brilliant friendly Phil Kay making everyone feel at home.
The Goodfather is hilarious, chaotic and exuberant. One of the loveliest and most surprising comedy nights in London.
This comedy night is one of the best in London. A bargain at five pounds, this is a night rammed full of incredible entertainment generating an energy which is at times almost palpable. The night itself always seems to serve up top quality acts whilst Phil Kay is as always, a delight.
The Goodfather is an outstandingly joyous comedy night, hosted by the cerebral sledgehammer that is Phil Kay. It showcases a comedy cavalcade of varied blossoming talents and turns, and the chaotic, jubilant atmosphere poses a serious challenge to the raucous ramshackle riot comedy of Edinburgh in August.
I was lucky enough to be asked to play this club in November but unlucky enough to possess a memory carved in air so that I was double booked with something else, so I missed the beginning of the show... what I did see of the second half warmed my heart and stretched my tiny mind, inspiring me to resolve to gig more often this year. This is a comedy club that is less 'booked' by Thomas Ward than lovingly curated as if it were his private art collection. Unusually for a central London club it attracts a bunch of losers from all over the place who are friendly and excited to be there, which makes it feel like a genuine club rather than an efficient entertainment business catering to popular tastes. Like all good things it won't last so get down there soon.
A unique, unpredictable and always hilarious night of stand up featuring rising stars and veteran comics too. It's all very nicely held together by the lunatic genius of Phil Kay. Probably one of the best nights of comedy in the capital. Highly Recommended!
At the Goodfather comedy night, stand-up genius Phil Kay leads one down a rabbit hole into a psychedelic alternative comedy trip. Here only the finest and sharpest comedic minds blossom, spreading their petals of hilarity across a warm and receptive room.
No smile uncracked. A night to make you believe in the magic of a big laugh. Very good times are almost literally guaranteed. I've been five times, each better than the last. See it before they all get snapped up for the next Dolmio campaign.
This is a gem of a comedy night. The genius free spirit of Phil Kay weaves the whole night together and the cream of comedic talent from the London circuit complements him perfectly. I can't imagine there is a better night of comedy on offer in the city. It really refreshes your faith in what comedy can do and be. A monthly treat well worth tucking into.
This is a fantastic comedy night in London. I've attended it twice now and all of the acts were of a really high quality, whilst Phil Kay was absolutely hilarious throughout, why he still isn't on tv I just don't know, but each time the material was wildly different but incredibly funny.
I went to the Goodfather last time it was at The comedy pub and it was the best night out Ive had in ages!! Phil kay was electrifying, such a good night, will go again x
