What a brilliant night out! I found this venue fun, friendly and the acts were very good. It was easy to find, the bar was good and the MC was excellent. I would definatley recommend this venue for friends, stag nights and hen nights - what a great way to begin :)

My boyfriend and I went to the Clapham Grand Comedy Carnival as we didn't want to spend fortunes on an overrated dinner and had always wanted to go to a comedy night. We bought tickets for the £16 price tag, as £45 each for dinner tickets was a little pricey to be honest! We sat at the back after buying... More

The Mrs and I were looking for something different to do for Valentines Day this year (2015) and decided to check out Comedy Carnival in Clapham. We weren't sure what to expect and booked directly off their website which sold tickets for general admission. The price was fair for a Valentines day event and the venue looked good so we... More

Me and my girlfriend loves this night out. Sat in some really comfy seats at the top tier and laughed our heads off until 10, then went straight down to what was a huge night club. What a great night for either a couple or even to go with the lads in my opinion. Will be heading to the next... More

Thanks for your feedback Paula. The event was advertised with a 6.30pm door time and it is unfortunate you had to wait outside. Many people enjoyed themselves and were happy with the comedy, food and the venue in general. We apologise if everything it wasn't to your taste. We encourage you to give Comedy Carnival another chance in the future. More

Went on a Virgin Experiences voucher not knowing what to expect. My attendance was confirmed prior to the visit and the staff on the door were helpful and friendly. Drinks offers were great for central London and cocktails were included (2 for £10) We sat in the 2nd row and laughed the whole way through. Acts were really funny. We... More

Visited in January as my husband and I received the tickets as a Christmas present. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Sides were splitting as all three comedians and host were hilarious. The audience was large and the rows of seats were close to each other but it was fine. Had some drinks offers on too. Venue was easy to find and... More

I celebrated a Christmas Party with my work colleagues at Comedy Carnival last week and had an absolute blast! All the comedians were hilarious especially Ian Stone who handled some drunks trying to interject beautifully. Their group kept trying to heckle the comedians but the club wouldn't have it and they were taken away at the break and never came... More
