I love the Comedy Pub. It has three spacious floors. The first floor is a very spacious room with a bar. The ground floor which is the main floor has a very large bar and lots of seating. They do, do food though I haven't eaten here. Now the reason I love this pub is because of the basement floor. On Thursday nights it is karaoke night, which is lots of fun. Then on Saturday nights it is cheesy music night. They have a DJ who is great and plays all kinds of music though be warned a lot of theatre people go to this pub and are quite camp and will ask for the cheesy music so as long as you like dancing to good old pop songs you will have a great night.
The Big Night Out is a comedy night held in the Comedy Pub at the weekends, made up of 3 comedians and the MC. The comedians were on the whole good, but you could tell they were relieved that there were a few 'boisterous' South Africans down the back that could help them with the 'oooh, tough crowd' moments.
One thing to note is that drinks are dearer upstairs (a pint is £1 more) so just walk downstairs, where the bar is usually soulless and half-empty, no probs gettin a drink.
The 'disco' downstairs isn't up to much; you're tempted downstairs with promises of free shotstequila rosé anyone? Yeah I thought so. The DJ must have got himself 'Now thats what I call 90s music' in the Woolies clearout, it was shockin!
Good comedy gig, but even in these recessionary times even a bad disco included is still a bad disco.
Pub with comedy club downstairs. Middle floor is bar area which serves food. Prices are reasonable for central London and the food menu is fine, pretty cheap and cheerful and they coped when 10 of us arrived together without booking. Comedy is downstairs (and I think they also have a comedy club upstairs, but I have not visited it). Acts are pretty good and can be viewed in advance on the Chortle website. Bar prices downstairs are also reasonable. Staff are very good as it gets very busy during interval and they remain friendly. Downside is the womens toilets which are a bit ropey and the floors are always sticky. Also we visited one evening and two very drunk guys heckled throughout the show. It took the staff about an hour to chuck them out.
