GO Comedy In South East London

Comedy in South East London Whatever tickles your funny bone you’ll find something to get you giggling with the range of comedy venues on offer in South East London.

If you’re looking for fresh young things head to Up the Creek [map], Creek Road, for that perfect combination of bright new talent and delicious food. This club is regarded by many as one of the best in South East London and with a top location in the heart of Greenwich this proves an excellent and uplifting way to begin a fun evening out. Veteran compare and manager Malcolm Hardee, who used to be heavily involved with first Soho Comedy Store, keeps a watchful eye over the bunch of emerging comedians.

The same winning combo of top cuisine and hilarity is offered at Aztec Comedy [map], The Borderland, Westow Hill.

See established performers like Boothby Graffoe, as well as having the opportunity to participate in the stand-up night for the brave, at EDComedy At The Union [map], Camberwell, New Road.

The Funky Monkey pub at Camberwell, Church Street, is the perfect place to relax with a couple of pints and see some quality comedy from performers from across the globe every Wednesday night.

Plan your visit to South East London for May and you’ll be able to enjoy the very cream of the crop at the Lewisham Comedy Festival. This annual event is where top names such as Vic Reeves, Julian Clarey and Keith Allen made their big leaps to stardom. The festival takes place in two theatres. The Deptford Theatre is where you’ll catch the best of emerging talent who battle it out to be crowned king or queen of the festival. At The Broadway Theatre [map] it’s a different story as the best established comedians take to the mike. Over the years this venue has played host to an incredible list of performers who feature prominently on the “who’s who” list of British comedy. These include Tommy Cooper, Lenny Henry, Bill Bailey and Ken Dodd, to name but a few.

There’s also comedy plays a-plenty so if you like your laughs mixed up with some real drama check out the offerings from writers such as Willy Russell and Harold Pinter.
