About Us

Downstairs at the Kings Head

We are perhaps best known as one of the oldest Comedy Clubs in Britain specialising in presenting great entertainment in a friendly and intimate environment.

Founded in 1981 by Peter Grahame and Huw Thomas, we now present shows throughout the week that champion the Best of the New, be it Comedy, Music of all persuasions, Spoken Word, Magic and Dance.

A favourite of Audiences and Performers, the venue prides itself on creating the right ambience for each event and providing unbeatable value for money.

With a capacity of 100 persons, the club boasts an excellent live PA system, fully stocked bar, air conditioning and comfortable seating on stools and benches around tables.

You'd be hard pushed to find any of the top comics who haven’t passed through our doors on their way up and we are privileged to find that most continue to perform with us long after they have become `too big’
