The Comedy store give an illusion that you're getting the best in UK comedy. Pictures on the wall of Michael Mcintyre, Kevin Bridges, Jimmy Carr and Peter Kay when they performed there. I'm sure they were all paid a fat sum of money for a...More

Decided to get a couple of tickets on a recently trip to London as an alternative to the cinema which we could do any old time. Our expectations weren’t particularly high but thought it would be something different to do. We were really pleasantly surprised,...More

We have been to the comedy store quite a few times usually to see the fantastic Improv Show by the wonderful Comedy Store Players. As always, the laughs were plentiful and the six of us in our group (including four first timers) had a great...More

Our first visit to the comedy store did not disappoint! Before booking the tickets I was little apprehensive as to whether or not we’d enjoy it as the acts weren’t people we were too familiar with. We both loved it and would highly recommend it...More

Great night out. Raucous, basic, a real hoot. Varies from fall-off-chair funny to just laugh-a-minute, but either way a fantastic way to spend fun times with friends. Even if you have no idea who's on that night, it's worth the gamble.

Unfortunately, the skill and quick wit of the talented comedians was far outweighed by irritating management. For one, I heard the manager talking about sourcing drugs with one of the clients, which is not what you expect! The doormen seemed to have an obsession with...More
