Had the best night at Bananas last Sat! Had me laughing all night. Every act said it was one of the top clubs or such a great club to play and it definitely showed. You'll be seeing me again soon!

Having visited this venue on at least a dozen occasions over a decade, I can safely say you are more likely than not to have a great night. Tonight, after a painfully funny night (that's a good thing!), my group had a lengthy debate about...More

Arriving at the Bedford for a night of comedy, we were expecting a lot. Instead it turned into a night of boredom. Truly the worst comedians I've ever seen! I will never return, nor recommend to anyone with a brain! Save your money and go...More

I booked two tickets online which cost over £35 with the booking fee. This turned out to be poor value. We were given seats on the balcony around a tiny table pushed up to the balcony rail and the small wooden fold up chairs were...More
