What some of the comedians and punters have to say about the Comedy Bin:

"It’s always a pleasure to play the Comedy Bin gigs. Great rooms, friendly crowds and wonderful MCs. An excellent variety of venues around town, brilliant experience regardless what level you’re at. Play them all!" 
Gary Shaw, comedian

"Great gig for comedy in a cozy bar that does terrific value for money cocktails. Last time I was there, I was off the booze and the friendly bar man made me a lovely pot of tea! Brill place for an open-mic stand up evening."(Hideaway Comedy Club) 
Russ Gregory, comedian

"Every Comedy bin spot I've done has been fantastic from the audience to the organisation of the night. I've done some pretty bad gigs in my time so a spot at a Comedy bin night reminds me why I do this thing called "comedy"!"
Adam Broomfield, comedian

"All manner of imaginative and diverse comedy can be found tucked away at venues across London in the Comedy Bin. Always a pleasure to perform at, with a fun atmosphere from both the other acts and audience members. I think of it as a Comedy Bread Bin, full of delicious loaves (laughs) that'll make you (bread) roll on the floor wetting (wheating) yourself (raising flour)..."
Owain Paciuszko, comedian

'As someone new to comedy, the comedy bin has really helped me find my feet. Their gigs are always in a friendly and supportive atmosphere, with some excellent comics performing alongside us new guys.'
Karl Maple, comedian

"The Comedy bin was an exciting night to be play. A welcoming friendly compere and warm atmosphere to peform in!"
Stanley Thomas, comedian

4 comedy spots available




Acts need to have done at least 150 gigs for T-Bird unless you think you are really funny ==> send us a video of you doing stand-up. We have also spots for new acts. It's also possible to rock up anytime and ask the MCs for a spot if you haven't booked a spot. However, they will only be allowed on stage if there is enough time and priority will be given to acts that bring along guests.

All gigs are to be treated as ‘real gigs’, i.e. no reading from the back of your hand or even worse reading from a laptop (which has happened in the past) etc.

Acts are encouraged to bring guests and help flyering in order to get booking priority the following month.

No-Shows: Whilst most of the acts do turn up, those who do not are taking the place of other acts who really want stage time but were not able to book a spot. As such, comics who do not turn up without notifying both us, and the MC beforehand (if possible a few days before the gig ) will not be able to book a spot the following two months. Your consideration is appreciated.

Arrival time: Please make sure to arrive half an hour before the gig. Should you be 
running late, then please get in touch with your MC otherwise your spot might turn into an open spot for acts that rock up.

Promotion: Each month we list all of our gigs on Time Out, Wozzon, Skiddle, Zvents 
and at least 15 other sites. We've also started using facebook groups a lot more and 
are having a big push on the promotional side of things. For each gig that you are 
booked in, we would ask that you post a link to the event on your facebook page and 
invite your friends, spread the word etc.
