The Venues: Tiger Tiger & The Comedy Pub
The Comedy Pub
The ground floor of The Comedy Pub is a lovely traditional English pub with a strong comedy theme.
The pub itself is a listed building. It has a lot of stairs, which can make it awkward for disabled or elderly people. Unfortunately it’s listed status means we cannot put a lift of any kind in.
The comedy club is on the first floor and sometimes the cellar room of the pub. Our capacity is 130 fully seated. All seats have an excellent view, there are no pillars etc, and our modern PA ensures that everyone can hear clearly.
All our seating is allocated. We do a seating plan before the show so your seats are reserved for you on arrival. This means we can guarantee to sit you together with your friends for the show. Like all pubs, our comedy venue is for ages 18 and over only.
We feature three or four comedians per show plus an MC. We aim to show case a diverse range of comedians in our comedy bills, so you will see a range of different types of stand up comedy through the evening.
We have two intervals to give you plenty of opportunity to get drinks or go to the toilet. A typical show lasts about two and a half hours, though live comedy is always hard to run to an exact timetable, as it is a live show, and as such a little unpredictable.
All of our comedians are handpicked. A typical show will feature two “name” comedians who usually have a TV credit such as Russell Howard’s Good News, Live At The Apollo, Mock The Week, 8 Out of 10 Cats etc. to their name, plus a “break-through” act (an act that is making the transition from “new” to professional) and a newer comedian. Please note that even the newer acts have been seen in advance and hand picked, they are only on because we think they are good enough.
We feature a completely new line up of comedians every weekend, which is why so many people come back to our club again and again.
We are proud that our club has a clear line of progression for comedians. Many of our headline acts who have become TV name comedians such as Romesh Ranganathan, Sara Pascoe, Nish Kumar, Luke Toulson, Daniel Simonsen, Katherine Ryan, Bobby Mair, Dane Baptiste etc started as the new act on our bills.
All of our line-ups are available on our website some months in advance, so we are open and transparent about who we have and what we are doing.
Our MCs are a vital part of the evening. They all have over ten years of experience, as we believe that the MC is a crucial part of the show. Judging from many of the reviews we have received, you agree with us.
Who We Are

A Bit Of History
Piccadilly Comedy Club first came into existence in 2004, then called the Piccadilly Circus Comedy Club. It ran for three years at The Crown on Brewer Street and was run in tandem with the neighbouring Upstairs at the Queens Head. It quickly built a reputation as great place to see up and coming comedians in an intimate environment.
Since then we have come a long way. But we still strive to capture that intimate atmosphere that only the best stand up comedy clubs have.
