Brilliant venue, what you expect from a small circuit comedy club in Central London, and the comedians were to notch. From the moment the MC came on at the start we were in stitches!! 😂 Definitely go again! :)

There's no food, but they have packages to eat in nearby places. Also because you're in the centre there are plenty of places to catch a bite to eat before your night out.
