GO Comedy In North London

Comedy in North London Life isn’t all ha ha hee hee but if a little laughter is just what the doctor ordered then check out where to find funny in north London.

One of the premier places in the area for stand-up comedy is the Red Rose Comedy Club [map]. With a 15-year comedy pedigree you should find hilarity here every Saturday night from autumn through to spring. Because the emphasis is on the quality of the comedy rather than decorative frills, this Islington venue promises maximum laughs for minimum cost.

Also with several years of comedy under its belt is Downstairs at the King’s Head [map]. Here established comedians and those just finding their feet in the world of stand-up are thrown into the ring aiming to slay any sour faces with laughter inducing one-liners.

If it’s the cream of the comedy crop you want then Bound & Gagged [map] in Palmers Green, N13, is worth a visit. Although acts were spread across two north London venues the quality has now been distilled to one top Friday night of entertainment. Comedy quality that has appeared at the venue includes Lee Evans, Eddie Izzard, Omid Djalili, Phil Jupitus and Jo Brand.

Hen & Chickens Theatre [map] has also had its share of notable comedy turns perform at their Islington venue. This theatre is used for a variety of entertainments throughout the week and so you will find that comedy usually takes centre stage at the beginning of the week. Here sketch shows, character comics and stand-up acts pepper the programme throughout the year.

For improv, head to the Comedy Brewhouse [map] in Camden Passage, home of the Laughing Cavaliers. Armed only with their quick wit and performance skills this group aim to produce entertainment of the highest order.

If comedy productions are more to your taste then you should check out what’s on at the local theatres. Jacksons Lane Theatre [map], has comedy amongst its programme of drama and performances; it also has a number of one-man stand-up shows. While Millfield Theatre [map] has an assorted menu of stage entertainments that often includes productions of the comic variety.
