Having lived and worked in London for a few years, I was always looking for a great event to take visiting friends or clients to in London. Dinner and drinks is nice - but where can you find a good pub-style meal, drinks and a stunning view of the London skyline - with world-class comedy - at a price that will surprise and please? The Boat Show!

Good solid pub food - I love the Lamb Shank - with 8-10 draft beers - and lots more bottled - plus the normal selection of cocktails - all while floating on the Thames near the London Eye - Tube Stop - Embankment.

The show gets started about 8pm - and runs to 11pm or so - with three breaks for bathroom and drinks - and then the place is converted into a dance floor for fun into the wee hours.

The team does a super job of finding great talent - often folks you will see later on the BBC or in Las Vegas or New York as a headliner.

Stars like Terry Alderton - one of my favorites of all time - are par for the course - see more on the their site at http://www.boatshowcomedy.co.uk/gallery-testimonials/

Love it - always my favorite friday in the lovely city of London!

All 3 acts we say were great, very funny and witty. Then there was a cheesy disco afterwards! I would recommend this comedy club to anyone.

My husband and I were visiting London for the weekend and are so pleased we bought tickets to the Boat Show. The first two comedians were hilarious and the MC was also very good. The third act was a magician when we'd probably have preferred another comedian, but otherwise we had a brilliant night. I'll definitely recommend it to my friends - and try to get tickets again if we're back in London.

We had a pretty good line up: Justin Moorhouse, Adam Bloom, Tiffany Stevenson, Chris McCausland.
I would have given full marks, but for two things. 1) The compere, not very good; and 2) the airconditioning was not working.
That said, I'd definitely go back.

This is my second visit to the boat comedy club and it was brilliant. All acts were hilarious, the MC is fab and warms up the crowd well. I went for my birthday as a party of 8 and was treated to a glass of champagne in the interval. A great night out, plenty of laughs, I would highly recommend it!
