It’s no fluke that Angel Comedy is constantly one of the most popular free clubs (if not one of the most popular clubs) in London: it’s consistently pretty frickin’ excellent. Running seven nights a week at N1’s Camden Head pub, the club mixes carefully selected new comics from the open-mic circuit alongside proper professional acts, especially on Friday and Saturday nights. Household name stand-ups, including Eddie Izzard and Russell Howard, have dropped by in the past to test new material, and AC regulars include hip hop improvisers Abandoman, BBC Comedy Award-winner Yuriko Kotani and Twitter supremo Adam Hess. Get there early, though – the room’s likely to become packed and it’s first come, first served. Good luck.

The best free comedy nights in London
Twice monthly, the Comedy Grotto gang put together cracking line-ups to raise money for various noble causes. ‘Raise money!?’ we hear you cry, ‘I thought these gigs were meant to be free?’ Well, strictly speaking, this is a pay-what-you-like night, but if you really can’t spare a pound you won’t be looked down upon. Previous acts include Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award nominees Aisling Bea, Liam Williams, Ben Target and more.
