The area
Address
Neighborhood: Greenwich
Greenwich Mean Time starts here, so to speak, as the very concept of global time was established at Royal Observatory, just one of several buildings of architectural interest in Greenwich. Indeed, the whole of Greenwich's historic town center, its Royal Park and a number of related buildings (and one world famous ship, the Cutty Sark) make up the UNESCO World Heritage site known as Maritime Greenwich. Today a laser beam is shot out across the night sky from the Observatory to mark the location of the Prime Meridian. Other bold (some say brash) 21st century additions to the area include landmarks such as The O2 entertainment complex (previously known as the Millennium Dome) and the Air Line cable cars, which offer scenic transport across the Thames between North Greenwich and the Royal Docks.

We attended the Thursday night Blackout comedy night. Great value for money as only £7 due to artists being up and coming. Staff lovely. Venue lovely. Price competitive for London. Some of the acts were genuinely hilarious and would have paid good money to see (including football t shirt guy, and the Lithuanian warehouse guy). Great audience participation through the audience being the judges. Host (around 45 with 2 daughters) was just great and managed to control a rowdy front row. He was funny too! I love how you can get food from a separate place which is attached. Chips were yummy and also a good price. Cannot fault, will return.

Went here for the first time last night. Friendly door staff who engaged well with people coming in. Quite a small little venue. The comedy was good . The compère was brilliant introducing the acts and interacted with the audience well. I would go back if in the area.

Thank you Up The Creek for putting together Saturday 5th Feb line up of compare Michael Legge and comics @Jimmy James Jones, @Paul Thorne and Mike Gunn (Comedian).
All comics worked the lively crowd exceptionally well. An exceptional night that had me laughing hard all night, so hard I woke up with a sore throat. That has never happened before at a comedy club.
Own brew craft beer, bar service could be improved. But exceptional nite.
Thank you Up the Creek Comedy Club — at Up the Creek Comedy Club

Hi Stuart! It's great to hear that you had such an amazing night at Up the Creek! We're sorry for the limited selection of our own brews on the night you visited. We have just hired a new full time brewer at Up the Creek and have two new brews which will be ready very soon. Hopefully we will see you again soon - we would love to give you a free pint of one of our new brews and see what you think!

Attended tonight for first time in over six months and wished I hadn’t.
Their facilities are filthy and poor. Toilet floor flooded and lock on cubicle not working. Then insult to injury when door staff yanked open the door and suggested I was taking drugs!!!
Reported to who I was told was the manager and was told not to come back if you do not like, this was after I was told they check and clean the facilities between acts - I pointed out I often attended very frequently and stopped as was/is often filthy!!!
Staff have very poor attitude.

At Up the Creek we operate a zero tolerance policy for any drug use. As a result, if customers are suspected of using drugs on site we do ask them to leave. We apologise that you feel you were asked to leave unfairly. However, our security team do not do this without substantial evidence suggesting that drugs have been used or brought on site. With regard to a flooded toilet, we inspected the facilities immediately after your complaint on the night and could not find a problem. Our toilets are all checked by a member of staff prior to every interval and any problems are dealt with immediately.

I attended to the comedy night on the 18/02/17 with a big group of friends for my friends 21st birthday.

It was a fun evening until one of the door men started a fight with an innocent man that was sitting opposite me. He asked the door man who was a tall slim black man if he can clean up a drink that had been spilt over this ladies table. The door man decided to shout in his face, pushing him with his hand and making a big scene whilst a compare was on the stage introducing the second act. Everyone was looking and I was so scared I sat in my seat shaking like a leaf! The doorman then was offering him outside to have a fight and I genuinely thought I was going to get hurt because I was so close behind this man.

The rest of the night I couldn't focus on the comedy acts because I was so frightened of this doorman. He was hovering around us all night and kept pulling people out of the room and disturbing the show every 5 minutes.

I am so disgusted that they have someone so angry, violent and rude working for somewhere that people go, to have a good laugh and a fun evening. I have to say I will not be coming back here again as I felt really unsafe and on edge for the whole rest of the show.

Defo not going back

Took my wife for a nice night out.We use to go to Holborn and Piccadilli for comedy shows but saw this in Greenwich and decided to give it a go. The funniest person there the night was the person presenting the acts. The first comedian, a French person personally insulted a 67 year old and other guests around him who tried to protect him. The comedian as all comedians tried connecting with the audience and get them to participate but instead of staying professional and rolling with it dropped his mic. He later explained how he would F##k the guests wife better than he could and told him if he was gay his boyfriend would look better than the guests wife.Also explaining how he don't care that the one guest is 67 years old. It went from age discrimination to sex discrimination to just being blatantly rude and out of order. He dropped his mic and explained that he gets paid anyway and don't care. The complete first act was like this. So we paid to see an unprofessional comedian being disrespectful. No food is served there. This was a terrible experience. If someone told me I would pay money to witness a unprofessional comedian with no respect throw his and the establishments reputation away i would never have been able to imagin this.People, there are beter things to spend your money on. This club seem to have spent good money on the presenter and not their comedian. Extremely disappointed.

Reason marked this low is because of the bouncers, they are actually an embarassment to the place, walking around looking for someone to tell off and have a row with, visiting as a group of girls we found their behaviour unsettling and uneccessary. Alrhough they did not approach us in particular, the way they all crowded around a young lad and threw him out was bullyish and disgusting, slapping each other on the back congratulating each other after.

Found it very difficult to book tickets as none of my phone calls were returned so turned up ion the night on the off chance. On the whole quite an entertaining evening but found the content to be heavily reliant on swearing as a means of humour. There was an interval between each act which dragged on as the bar was understaffed. All the chairs were removed at the end a disco started up which was an added bonus

I bought four tickets to watch an evening show the first Saturday night in January. It was very poor. To say the first act was a comedian was pushing it. He seemed to lose his confidence when a lager lout in the crowd kept referring to Peter Beardsley. The second act joked about paedophiles and rape - not funny guys...Again this disintegrated due to the crowd and then he preceded to have a conversation with the crowd. Our group of four left after this with one further "comic" to go. We'd had enough of the acts not being funny. We've all been to comedy nights elsewhere in London, Sheffield and elsewhere and never felt let down before.
I believe for £15 the acts should have been better performers, capable of controlling the leery crowd (drunk on the ale sold to them before the late start time of 9pm, 30 mins after the scheduled start time of 8:30 and during the overgenerous extended breaks. We wrote to request a refund and have nto yet had a reply...
