In my view, unquestionably the best comedy club in London - they really know how to put on a good night's entertainment. What to expect? Three top acts from the comedy circuit plus one of their regular comperes (Craig Murray should be knighted) and a special exclusive kind of atmosphere which you just can't get at the more 'corporate' clubs.
My girlfriend (Libby who wrote the first review) and I have now become regulars and the staff who run the comedy are always really friendly and welcoming. Once you know the place, my tip is pay for your tickets over the phone via their booking line, that way you can request which seats you'd like - they can't always 100% guarantee that you'll get what you've asked for - it is a dinky room and they often have odd group sizes to grapple with but its a nice touch nonetheless.
Particularly in the Autumn/Winter peak days (Friday Saturday mainly) often get booked up over a week in advance so book early to avoid disappointment.
This is my favourite comedy club in London so as they weren't already on here I thought I'd do them a favour and add them to Qype. The club is right in the centre of Covent Garden, they get great acts (I saw Harry Hill there last year) and there's always a really great atmosphere (perhaps because its in a cellar and is pretty small which makes the experience feel special compared to other big clubs). I thoroughly recommend it.
Without doubt the best comedy club in London. I love stand up comedy and have never been disappointed with a night at The Funny Side. The acts are always top notch, as are the regular comperes and the athmosphere in the venue is second to none! Check it out people!!
Am complete standup comedy addict so have been to lots of clubs in central london. Went to The Funny Side etc with a friend who'd been before, Nick Doody and Papa CJ were both on and fab (i'd seen them both at the Edinburgh Festival).
It expect it was packed, but seemed to be so well organised (we had allocated seats) and a bar in the room.
Was quite small - i'd guess only about 70 people, but that gives it a bit of a secret club feeling which i loved. Am now on their mailing list and planning a work night out there soon!
