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

We attended a show on 5th December at Bar Rumba on Shaftesbury Avenue. Venue is easy to find and entry was straight forward showing our ticket confirmation email. There was a drinks promo on - £10 for 5 bottles of Carlsberg was reasonable. As for the Comedy, the line up was really good. We were disappointed that one of the... More

Thanks for great review of our comedy club. We introduced some new drink specials in November which have proved very popular. We also prefer our audiences to watch the show and leave it to the professionals, rather than try and participate! We look look forward to seeing you at Comedy Carnival again. More

We were 8 girls from Norway travelling to London for some x-mas shopping. As a surprise for the birthday girls we booked a x-mas package at Comedy Carnival which included dinner and a show. The food at La Tasca was wonderful and the comedy show was awesome!! And the host was one if the funniest 😊. Afterwards we danced all... More

I was looking for a different plan to do with my boyfriend. We have been to Comedy Shows before but this has been the best. Having 3 different comedians is a guarantee. As I told him "at least one of them has to be good". They were all fun. We were laughing all the time. The comedians were quite sarcastic... More

Thanks for your excellent review of Comedy carnival Ana and for saying that it was the best comedy show you've seen! We advise people with general admission tickets to get there earlier for better seats, otherwise we have reserved seating tickets available which guarantee our best seating. More

Random choice, but some great acts. Good mix of styles and even surprising good act on guitar mixing comedy and music. Friendly hosts and really good comedians. Bargain night out for a quality comedy club.

I visited Comedy Carnival about a year ago with some friends and had such a brilliant time that I decided to celebrate my birthday there. We booked the £30 party package online which included dinner at Grace restaurant before the show - excellent food and great atmosphere. Like the first time, the comedians at the club did not disappoint. The... More

I went with my friends from Sweden and we all loved it. I watch a lot of stand-up comedy on tv and i felt this was the real stuff. We saw three outstanding comedians i had never heard of, all of them utterly funny, and the staff were very professional. The venue is small but that creates a great atmosphere... More

Absolutely brilliant. The venue is kind of an underground club in central London, cosy and affordable. The club is divided in two areas, the part where the actual show takes place and the bar. I pop in around 7.15; at the entrance a charming young lady checked my name in the list and let me know what were the drink´s... More

I came here for a comedy night on a Saturday. Although the venue was very small and everyone was quite squashed in the seats, it was a really good night. All comedians were really funny including the MC. After the comedy had finished at 10pm the bar turned into a club. Drinks were good prices considering the location. Would recommended... More
