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.

  1. Comedy Store 1a Oxendon St, SW1Y 4EE
  2. Every Thursday, Friday and Saturday

Soho Comedy Club

With most comedy clubs ramping up their prices at weekends to cash in on the off-the-clock laughter-seeking Londoners, Soho Comedy Club offers just as good line-ups at incredibly good value for money – plus bring along a copy of Time Out, and it's only a tenner! Walking through the Empire Casino in Leicester Square, past rows of depressed business men blowing their bonuses at the roulette table, it doesn't feel like you're in for a joke-fest. But once you're in the chandelier-laden room, in the company of the friendly regular comperes, you'll feel right at home.

  1. The Casino at The Empire 5-6 Leicester Sq, WC2H 7NA
  2. Every Friday and Saturday
