Still great comedy night but venue not so funny
Jan 2020
I have been coming to the Laugh Train Home comedy night at the Four Thieves for nearly a year now and it's always been a great fun night and love seeing so many new acts every week. Except last night’s experience with the venue when trying purchase drinks at the bar was a very different story, total nightmare and not funny. I felt like the staff just had been pulled in from the street and had no idea what was going on with the comedy night.

It started when asking for the usual house bottle of red wine at the discounted rate of £12. I was informed it had been discontinued on red/white wine and they may have some discount available on the rose now, which I thought sounded odd. I then asked about getting the G&T on the discounted rate and she didn’t really seem be aware of any such deals, she just looked blankly at me and could not answer my question.

I then decided to go the main bar and asked again, I was informed a completely different reason that the discounted rates in fact finished at 8pm but at this point it was still a few minutes to 8’o clock. He then looked rather sheepish at me and said he needed to check with his manager again. It felt like no staff member had any idea what was going on and could not tell me accurate information around the drink deals.

I then spoke to the manager and she informed me that all discounted drinks were no longer from 2020 and I asked why I was not clearly informed this from the beginning and why only the previous week it was fine, it is also advertised on the flyers! She did offer me a bottle of red for £14 for all the confusion it caused. I then left it there as the show was going to start soon.

Then to add to the confusion and frustration when leaving I was handed a flyer and at the bottom it clearly says in capitals DISCOUNTED PRE-SHOW DRINKS before 8:30pm. So, you are advertising discounted drinks which you were clearly not selling, which is very misleading.

I don’t want this experience to prevent me and friends coming to future comedy nights but it has really left us all feeling rather frustrated and annoyed at the situation. I know for sure I would spend a lot on reasonable drinks and going forward with cheapest wine £22 a bottle that's unlikely.

Can you please explain what's going on!? Why change what was working well?

Hello Alice, We just saw this review and have looked into it. Apparently in January there was a changeover in the wine list, creating a system error. It was fixed by the end of the night. The discounts are still available. I am so sorry you have experienced a system error, but also glad to hear your experience of the actual comedy on this occasion was great. And we are even more glad to hear you have had really great experiences of the whole night (including comedy) for over a year. It is a shame we are in a society that encourages negative reviews for bad experiences more than positive reviews for the good experiences. After you had a year of positive experiences, it is unfortunate you did not contact us about the drinks deal mix-up before publishing the review as it was a miscommunication that would have been sorted. Did you speak with our COMEDY show-runner on the night? Ben gives me show reports every evening, and this was not mentioned. You can always contact us on LaughTrainHome@LaughTrainHome.com with any more questions or issues. Cheers, Robyn

Great atmosphere, lovely venue, and a preview of a couple of cracking shows which will go down a storm in Edinburgh this year.
We will definitely be coming back here again.

I’ve been to this show twice so far and have really enjoyed it both times! The standard and range of the comedians is really high and I try to make a visit every Wednesday. Decent crowds each time with very funny crowd interaction from the compéres.

Wildly entertaining night
Jul 2017 • Friends
Laugh Train Home is more than just a comedy night - it's a community with regular attendees coming back time and time again.

American-born, London-based Robyn MCs the night to perfection, managing to coax interesting information out of even the most unwilling of audience members. Her choice in comics astounds me, no matter who I go with at least one of the comics will leave them crying with laughter - yet somehow the night never seems disjointed. For those that get thirsty, there's a break between each of the three comics to sample the various gin cocktails on offer and the venue also does great food. It's walking distance from Clapham Junction station for ease of getting home after too.

Date night/meeting up with friends/going solo - this night is honestly perfect for every situation.

Great show, great price!
Sep 2017 • Couples
First time going to a comedy show at one of my favourite bars in London, and was not disappointed!

Robyn Perkins (MC) was hilarious in front of a packed room on a Wednesday night. Great atmosphere and the comedy was fantastic.

With three acts with a break in between each, and for only £8, it was such a good night - will definitely be back!
