Voted one of London`s best comedy clubs by The Evening Standard on  9 January 2017


Monkey Business Comedy Club is one of the most highly respected, influential and exciting Comedy Clubs in the UK today and has kick started the careers of many acts that are now household names .

Monkey Business is always on the lookout for new talent with potential for our Saturday night shows. 

We carefully select acts to perform at Monkey Business

so that a reasonable standard and quality of comedy is maintained –

it is just one of the things that sets us apart from many other new act nights .

If you would like to perform at Monkey Business please send us a little info about yourself,

a clip is good too ,a photo (if you have one) and your contact number to this email address:


we don`t tolerate racist or sexist content

swearing unnecessarily on stage is unfunny and annoying 


If you are unable to make your spot for some reason, please notify us ahead of time (or risk being denied stage time in future).

Avoid rushing off after doing your set – it reflects badly on you and is impolite to the other acts.

Make sure you are prepared to perform material of a decent standard.

Be on time:

Doors open 7.15pm. Show starts 8.00 pm.

Please arrive by 7.30 pm

Your stage time will be between 5 & 7 minutes depending on how many performers are on the bill unless agreed otherwise.


Monkey Business has always played a signifcant part in fully supporting new acts  .
If you feel that you are  funny and ready please send me a clip .

Send to  thanks


  Asking friends along to the show will help make the night a success.

  ( a big, friendly audience is never a bad thing.)

All performers are asked to also do their very best in helping promote the night 

Your friends are welcome at our reduced ticket price £6.00 

with normally at least one top act on the bill

Our New Venue

Many thanks.

Martin Besserman 

 Lovely crowd at Monkey Business Comedy Club last night. Martin Besserman is an excellent host, really kept the mood up. His is an intimate space, and a great venue to try new material, which is rare for a weekend headliner in Central London. Thank Goddess for Martin, he gives new acts stage time and has supplied circuit comics with work for many, many years. Any emerging performers out there, just know Monkey Business is a safe platform for experimentation with an interlligent, insightful audience and a reliable host. Cheers, and Happy Kwanzaa Scott Capurro 26 November 2017·
