Comedy CafeDon't let the gaudy red and yellow paint that mutilates the exterior of this
fantastic comedy club deter you from gracing its hallowed floors. It may seem less slick than Jongleurs or Comedy Store, but the Comedy Cafe has a reputation as the venue most favoured by performers. This in itself is no small
praise. In the past it has been a much loved hang-out for comedic geniuses such
as Eddie Izzard, Mark Lamarr and Jo Brand. It's also one of those rare comedy
venues that has been purpose-built. Inside it's a hugely laid back, intimate
environment. Rafts of small tables have been crammed into a dusky space, with a
small, unobtrusive stage for the comic. Between laughs, patrons can guzzle on
tasty Mexican food and knock back good value pints. The quality can be a little
patchy so if you want guaranteed laughs aim for a Friday or Saturday night -
that's when the big acts churn out the jokes. It is a steep £16 on Saturdays but
we promise you'll be chuckling all the way home.
