Comedy StoreThe Comedy Store is the spiritual home of stand-up in the UK. Despite being the best large comedy venue in the country, the Store still succeeds in creating an intimacy between comic and audience. Best of all, its central London location gives it a wonderfully mixed crowd. The country's first full-time comedy club, the venue still claims to hold this title. It can also be credited with discovering a host of alternative comedians throughout the 80s, all of these are now household names. Paul Merton, Rik Mayall, Adrian Edmonson, Eddie Izzard, Steve Coogan, Jennifer Saunders, Dawn French, Keith Allen, Clive Anderson and Ben Elton all started out in this small West End joint. The club's growing prestige even attracted US attention - Robin Williams was known to drop in when he felt like a live comedy fix and perform, unscheduled, for over an hour. The place hardly ever closes so whenever you're in London there's bound to be some comic extravaganza taking place here. Weekends are always busy so try and book tickets as far in advance as possible. The world-famous Comedy Store Players take to the stage every Sunday and Wednesday with their one-off displays of improvisation at its best, Tuesdays offer topical comedy from The Cutting Edge crew, while Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays promise The Best in Stand-Up, and by this they mean exactly what they say: a superbly programmed night. You're having a laugh if you don't pop in.
