Does anyone know of any (decent) open mic nights in London? I'm looking to get a string of gigs done and it's proving quite difficult to find ones still running online apart from 3 or 4..........

Hi Mike T,

There are loads of open mic gigs in London you could try the following if you haven't done so already:

Laughter shock comedy: The College arms, Store Street London - Mondays
Pear Shaped Comedy: The Fitzrovia Tavern, near Goodge Street - Wednesdays
King Gong - The Comedy Store, London - Last Monday of the month (I think?)
Up the Creek - Greenwich, Thursday nights
The Comedy Café - Shoreditch, new act night - Wednesdays
The Cavendish Arms, Stockwell - Mondays, Tuesdays (this ones a bringer)
We are Funny Project, Dirty Dicks, Liverpool Street - Tuesdays, Wednesdays
Dead Comedians Socks (Not sure of the location or night but, check out touching cloth as well)
Check out the comedy Bin Web site because they pretty much run a night every night of the week.
Heavenly Comedy - Shaftsbury Avenue (I Think) on a Thursday (this may still be a bringer)
The Lions Den - Tuesdays (although this is pay to play)

These are the ones that I can think of off of the top of my head but there are quite a few more. Hopefully, this'll get you started? Feel free to PM me and I'll let you know the contact details for the above if I have them.

All the best,

Hi Ste, I am based in that sort of area also, I do know of two monthly nights in croydon but they are not open mic, and I can't seem to find the details right now (lost somewhere in my facebook messages) I also know the cock and bull in Sutton is running a comedy night first Thursday of every month now but I am struggling to find out who organises it.

If you are not on it already join the comedy collective on facebook, you can find loads of information on there.

Hello everyone, I'm the coordinator of Colchester Comedy Network - we've very recently undergone a name change - and on January 8th, we're running our first comedy Open Mic, under the name The NonConformist Comedy Club.

The basic premise of the event is to allow alternative comics the chance to perform in front of a new crowd, test out material, get feedback and be in a safe environment.

It's strictly alternative, so the less jokes we have about boobs and bums and gender and geography the better - if you think you fit the bill, do get in contact via, or join us on Facebook under the same name.

A link to the event page is below, you can also sign up here if you're interested. It takes place at St Botolph's Waiting Room in Colchester, so if you're coming from out of town, I'll be happy to meet you at the station and so on.

Thanks, hope this is of interest to some of you!

Hi all - been making my way through the contacts in this very helpful thread - thanks!

On the subject, does anyone have any good contacts for Birmingham / Midlands area to swap?

I've found 'Where to Get a Gig' thread on the West Midlands Comedy Forum to be useful, link here:

Hi! I was wondering are there any open mic nights in Cornwall still active, the nearest I can find is in Bristol and I just can't make that 3 hour drive.
