3 Banana Cabaret

Said to be one of the friendliest comedy clubs in the country, The Banana Cabaret has been providing weekend laughs in Balham for over three decades. One of London’s longest running, stand-up comedy clubs, it is located at the highly-respected unrivalled pub, The Bedford, which has a history stretching back to 1931. This intimate venue has hosted some favourite house-hold name comics, including Rob Brydon, Lee Evans and Jo Brand, but is also a springboard for new and emerging artists too.

4 Laugh Train Home Comedy Nights

Let’s face it, most Tuesday nights are dull, but not in Wandsworth with its great stand-up comedy. Hosted by Laugh Train Home that brings you fantastic live acts across south London, it is said to be one of London’s hottest stand-up comedy nights at the moment, with some of the most established comics, TV names and rising stars every week.

The Four Thieves, 51 Lavender Gardens SW11 1DJ

5 Rose Theatre

While not exactly a club, don’t miss the top names in comedy that come to the Rose Theatre. As a world-class venue, it gets to host some of the biggest, highly-acclaimed comedy stars such as Russell Kane, Sandi Toksvig and John Bishop; to name just a few.

6 The New Victoria Theatre

Again, not a comedy club, but it still hosts some of the biggest names in the industry to guarantee lots of laugh and fun! The New Victoria Theatre’s main focus is first class drama, but this foremost venue still undoubtedly knows how to put on interesting, innovative and downright funny comedy in the south east of England. Rather than multi-bill night, it hosts long solo shows from some of the best stand-up acts, including Josh Widdicombe, Jack Dee and Jimmy Carr.

Don’t let its size fool you. Even though it is a smaller, community club, this comedy venue has witnessed some of the most hilarious TV circuit and international comedians on the scene right now. On the last Friday of the month, Comedy Cottage takes over the Harlequin Theatre’s largest function room bringing you the hottest local comedians from the circuit.

9 The Boat Show

The best comedians on the circuit – both national and international, including many bona fide stars – brilliant material new and rehearsed, and an excellent bar to keep your drinks topped up, The Boat Show is one not to miss. And yes – it’s an actual boat.
