London Comedy

Hey everybody! If you follow me over on Instagram or Twitter (if you don't I highly recommend you do....shameless self promotion!) you'll have seen I was in London the last week to visit my dad I don't get to go down much as I work full time so it's difficult finding the time to so this week we lapped up the opportunity and it involved a few drinks. We usually go see the typical musical theatre while I'm down there but now I'm a tad older we decided to go for some comedy this time around and I was pleasantly surprised.

We started the week off with the Comedy Store in which we seen five comedians, of course the front row full of bankers and lawyers got picked on like there was no tomorrow and my attempt of heckling ended in me getting picked on. The show every Tuesday is topical comedy going from the last year to the last seven days getting the audience involved constantly and playing games, the absolutely brilliant Ben Norris stood out to me improvising a whole rap on the spot so if there is any reason you need to go on a Tuesday night it's that! The theatre had a bar in which you could take your drinks to your seats and was quite small making it intimate but for me this makes the experience 10x better (more opportunities to get picked on by the comedians!) The price for the Comedy Store also isn't awful coming in at £14 a ticket so a pretty cheap night out in the centre of London!

Friday came and we went to SOHO theatre to see Australian Sam Simmons and I can honestly say out of the three nights in the week we seen comedy this was my favorite. The poor man had a god awful night as he had a tough audience, got heckled to kill himself and had a man say his show was basically shit each to their own but I 100% know at least the first two rows loved the show! Sam makes comedy different he didn't just stand on a stage with a microphone he came out to a stage full of props in a white bathrobe and white boxers and started the show very seductavly pouring a box of rice crispies over his body. From start to finish he had the audience on stage, having input, he had me in tears! The show was basically around "whatshitsme" so in other words what pisses him off. Seriously YouTube this guy he is just brilliant, I couldn't recommend his show enough. Also if your all for audience involvement and having a laugh sit on the front row, we got showered in lettuce, toast, cereal....the list goes on!

The last night we decided last minute to go to Camden Comedy Club above the Camden Head which was 5 comedians for £10 all of which neither me and my dad had heard of so thought it would go two ways really good or really bad. I was happy to see two women who I must say we're my favorite out of the five comedians I can't say these were the best I had seen all week but they made us laugh. The theatre is above a pub and is really small so gets quite hot but even better as it was so intimate this type of night just wouldn't have worked in a big club. I can't say too much about this night as it didn't wow me but if your looking for some intermediate comedians who like to try new stuff in small venues this is the place to go! 

It was really refreshing seeing some comedy this time I was down, I just wish we had something like this in Liverpool! If we do let me know because I just love it! Also if you know any good comedy clubs in London comment them below because I am 100% on then lookout for next time I'm down!
