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.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see the outrageously funny Alistair William’s debut Edinburgh show without having to go to Edinburgh or back in time to August. It was described by critics as “laugh out loud funny” and “genuine brilliance”. He feels like they could have gone further to be honest though. It’s about doing what you really want to do in life. You should come.

The focus of this workshop is to unlock the writer in you by following your instincts as an actor/performer/improviser.

We will start by building rich characters on our feet. Through guided improvisation we will zero in on your character’s idiosyncrasies, voices, postures, and world view. Once we have a handle on these new personas we can use them as powerful writing tools.
