GO Comedy In East London

Comedy in East London If songs of joy and tears of laughter are all we need to lift our hearts then head for east London to send it soaring.

Hackney Empire [map] is where you’ll find premier league comics wielding their one-liners and observational anecdotes for your paying pleasure. Historically this is where comedy forefathers including Charlie Chaplin, Stan Laurel and George Formby all plied their trade and today Hackney Empire is where you’ll find the crème of the crop… possibly even on the same bill.

The Backyard Comedy Club [map] began in 1998 enabling punters to enjoy quality comedy in less than salubrious surroundings – today however, the club built and run by British comic Lee Hurst (of They Think its All Over fame) offers the best of both worlds. A show in this 400-seater venue gives you three top acts just round the corner from Bethnal Green tube station.

East London is also home to one of the popular Jongleurs [map] comedy venues. Jongleurs Bow has the great comedy turns you’ve come to expect from the comedy chain housed in a Victorian warehouse close to Mile End tube station.

Thursday night is comedy night in Walthamstow with the Laughing Horse comedy show allowing acts from all over the country to cause fits of laughter at The Plough Inn Theatre [map].
