We've got all the hot acts on the London live comedy circuit, and a dangerously cheap bar to boot. Summer 2014 at TSCC means that at 7pm you can come along and see an Edinburgh preview show with free entry. Enjoy the magic of the Edinburgh Festival without leaving Zone 1! Our main show starts at 8.15pm and finishes by 10.45pm and we are open every day except Christmas! Every show has two intervals. Mondays is RAW New Material night, with 6 professional comedians trying out some freshly baked gags. Tuesdays is improv from the Time Out-recommended Shoot From The Hip. Wednesdays to Sundays is business as usual, with a stand-up show featuring the absolute creme de la creme of the acts on the London circuit. The bar! Just wait until you hear about the bar. Pints are from £3.50, vino from £3.30 and spirits + mixer is £3.70. We have Pringles and nuts, but if you want something more substantial, there's a pizza place upstairs where you can get 2 for the price of 1, and have the pizza brought down to you to eat in the comedy club. NB: Line ups are subject to last minute changes, best rest assured that all of our line ups (no matter how changed) will always be of a top class quality. Under 18s can attend but with a guardian, but prepare to hear some naughty jokes.

The Top Secret Comedy Club is amazing. The atmosphere is lovely, and all the acts we saw were testing out new material, which was hilarious! The host was really funny, and you could tell he was really passionate about the event. The drinks and snacks...More

A brilliant venue. Cheap entry, cheap drinks and a great night out. Helpful and friendly staff. Would do with additional work to modernise the venue but overall really really good.

Had a wonderful evening here with my wife and our parents. Mostly the acts were really good and funny, but there were some more controversial humour which I don't appreciate but I understand that everyone's humour is different. For the price we paid it was...More

Love this place so much. It can be hit and miss with the acts performing, but you just have to roll with it. It has the cheapest drinks in Convent Garden and very friendly staff. Definitely give it a go, you won't be disappointed!

Popular,so if you want a good seat(other than the front row), go into the bar across the road for a drink and you can see the people entering,then about 7.40m for a 8m show, put something of no value across the seat/s to reserve. There's...More

This is a great place for a laugh, the early show features comedians who are just breaking onto the scene. With a later show featuring slightly more polished performances. It's a great night out as long as you don't take yourself too seriously. If you...More
