This Islington pub is a haven for all things comedy
Grubby angel pub The Mucky Pup has had a facelift: after being taken over by Angel Comedy Club, its exterior is now covered in the gurning mugs of great comedians from Charlie Chaplin to Victoria Wood. The name suggests that its new owners might just be paying homage to the famously eccentric comedy star Bill Murray, too. But for legal reasons, the pub is officially named after William Murray, Charles I's whipping boy and 1st Earl of Dysart.
The Bill Murray is a fully functioning pub, serving drinks and snacks seven days a week. Angel Comedy Club also use The Bill Murray (as well as the Camden Head up the road) to host their jam-packed programme of free comedy shows, visits from circuit comedians, workshops and improv.
