Welcome To Angel Comedy

2 venues. 7 nights a week. 100% funny.

In the words of Time Out, we’re “a comedy institution”.

Angel Comedy brings you free, top notch comedy every night of the week at our original venue, upstairs at the Camden Head, Islington.

From November 2016 there’s even more incredible comedy on offer, with the launch of our very own venue, the Bill Murray, just round the corner on Queen’s Head Street. As well as a programme of amazing comedy, there’ll be courses, rehearsal space, community projects and more. Oh, and it’s also a lovely pub.

“So You Think You’re Funny?” 2015 winner, Italian Luca Cupani brings to London his last Edinburgh show!
The man who was too funny for Italy and moved to the UK tells the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth in these intimate semi-serious
confessions about religion, sex and the admin of death: awkward procedures in Italian cemeteries, the constant battle with Catholic guilt, a singular
quest for lust that went wrong… ‘Funny and fresh and so, so moreish… See him now’ (Kate Copstick, Scotsman)
