Character comedy in London

Sick of stand-up? Try some character comedy in the capital


As well as the hundreds of stand-up gigs and solo shows, London offers tons of other genres of comedy to suit practically every taste. In recent years, character comedy has become a big fixture on the London comedy circuit. As the name suggests, it features comics performing in character, from oddball cafe owners, to cat-obsessed loners via country and western stars.

Often character comics will appear on bills with sketch acts and stand-ups, but acts like Colin Hoult, Loretta Maine and Brian Gittins perform their own solo shows too. To give you a taste, below are the next ten character comedy gigs happening in London.
