From the Big Daddy of Comedy at the Comedy Store, to the off centre shows in 'Downstairs at the Kings Head', London has comedy to suit every taste and style. Cabaret comedy, stand up, alternative, up and coming, established acts, comics that write in the Guardian, or appear on BBC Radio 4 and British TV are all at work in the capital in one venue or another. Line ups are constantly evolving, so check out our list of the 10Best comedy venues in the capital and you'll definitely find one to suit you. If you want chandeliers and grand casino entrances, then try the Soho comedy club, if you want a more cosy environment, then the Hampstead Comedy Club in Primrose Hill might be more up your street. Amused Moose plays for laughs and is that kick around pub kind of humour that appeals to the younger end of the market. At the Leicester Square Theatre you'll get a taste of music royalty's past, as the Rolling Stones, the Who, the Small Faces and the Sex Pistols played there once upon a time, today, you'll be in for a set of great alternative and up and coming comedy, as well as big name acts from across the Pond. The Soho theatre prides itself on alternatives, and great writing, and the Union Chapel, is such a unique comedy venue, a church, that it is not to be missed.
