A must go venue for comedy fans, with all the usual caveats that not everything and not everyone is funny all of the time. The main theatre seats are a bit of a test, not the most comfortable but whoever went to a comedy venue and expected to be comfortable, intellectually, emotionally or physically? Particularly love the bar for before/after... More

I'm a big fan of Ade Edmondson and was delighted to see him perform in such a theater. Four stars as the seats are hard work and uncomfortable. Setting and venue is great. Adnams ale as well.

Visited this venue to watch a comedy act, which was in the basement. It was a well laid out & intimate space, served by it's own bar - perfect for the type of act we were there to see. The central area is also great for hanging out - whether going to see a show or not - with a... More

They book many different comedy acts for the Upstairs venue. Some of them are fantastic, others not so good. It is a room that is packed with a really low ceiling. It is pretty unpleasant after 45 minutes in there as the air gets progressively staler and becomes humid. Its like being in a broken down tube in July.

Booked some tickets to go and see Daphne (from the Edinburgh Fringe). Really loved the small studio feel of Soho Upstairs. The guys were truly funny and the show seemed to fly by. The bar has a good buzz to it and a good place to grab a drink. We then went to see Ade Edmonson a few nights later... More

Visited here a few times to see a number of comedians. They never fail and neither does the Soho Theatre as a place that puts on high quality entertainment with great staff and atmosphere

Saw a blind comedian here. Few drinks in the bar before and a good vibe about the place. Very cosmopolitan crowd and intimate little stages which are perfect for these types of gigs. Good nigh had by all, reccomend.

BUT lots and lots of jokes. What else after an hour with Omid Djallili. A very pleasant evening full of laughter. Get there a bit early say 6.55 for 7.30 show. Doors open at about 7-7.05 and you will be amongst the first to get in and have a table of your choice.

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.
