Overview

We've got all the hot acts on the London live comedy circuit, and a dangerously cheap bar to boot. Summer 2014 at TSCC means that at 7pm you can come along and see an Edinburgh preview show with free entry. Enjoy the magic of the Edinburgh Festival without leaving Zone 1! Our main show starts at 8.15pm and finishes by 10.45pm and we are open every day except Christmas! Every show has two intervals. Mondays is RAW New Material night, with 6 professional comedians trying out some freshly baked gags. Tuesdays is improv from the Time Out-recommended Shoot From The Hip. Wednesdays to Sundays is business as usual, with a stand-up show featuring the absolute creme de la creme of the acts on the London circuit. The bar! Just wait until you hear about the bar. Pints are from £3.50, vino from £3.30 and spirits + mixer is £3.70. We have Pringles and nuts, but if you want something more substantial, there's a pizza place upstairs where you can get 2 for the price of 1, and have the pizza brought down to you to eat in the comedy club. NB: Line ups are subject to last minute changes, best rest assured that all of our line ups (no matter how changed) will always be of a top class quality. Under 18s can attend but with a guardian, but prepare to hear some naughty jokes.

Popular,so if you want a good seat(other than the front row), go into the bar across the road for a drink and you can see the people entering,then about 7.40m for a 8m show, put something of no value across the seat/s to reserve. There's...More

Thanks for a lovely review! Our bar is open from an hour before our main shows, so you can always get here earlier for the best seats, and we have a much better priced bar than the surrounding options. Hope you come back soon!

Thanks for a great review Sarah. If you've been coming to our £1 Monday shows, these are where comedians often practise their new material, and figure out what does and doesn't work. I'd recommend coming back on some other nights if you don't want to...More

This is a great place for a laugh, the early show features comedians who are just breaking onto the scene. With a later show featuring slightly more polished performances. It's a great night out as long as you don't take yourself too seriously. If you...More
