We went to Comedy Carnival for my friend's 30th birthday celebration and it was fantastic from start to finish. All the comedians and the host were excellent and we couldn't believe it when the last comedian was LEE NELSON from TV! We would definitely recommend this comedy club for a great night out in central London.

Was bought tickets for the Comedy Carnival through Virgin Experiences for Xmas, and it was a fantastic night. Warm up act was brilliant, and three excellent comedians made for a hilarious evening! The venue is small and just adds to the atmosphere of the night, and happy hour throughout the show with great drinks deals just made the night even... More

All 13 of us had a great night out. The atmosphere was fantastic and the location was easy to find. The host was so funny and got the crowd involved. All 3 comedians were funny but the last 2 were great. Would defo go again.

The host was hilarious and engaged with the audience a lot, he was really exuding positive energy. The three comedians were each different, but all of... More

We were broght these tickets for my partners birthday and was not really sure what to expect. Must say that the comedians along with the host were all very good and made for a good evening's entertainment. As we had to leave our home early to arrive at the venue it would have been nice to have food on site... More

First time to CC, particularly Impressed with Phil Nichol the first comedian of the night, although the host and other two comedians were great too (Sean meo is a favourite of mine). The venue itself wasn't what we were expecting but added to the ambience of the night, cheap drinks on offer and all in all good VFM.

Usually very sceptical about booking comedy night in central London as they're usually the same sketch due to the turn over of tourists... After going to Comedy Club at Bar Rumba on Friday 6th March I have now changed my mind, this was HILARIOUS! 3 Great comedians and a just as funny MC, the third comedian was a little late... More

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
