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.

A legend on the UK comedy circuit Mike Bubbins has supported Rich Hall on tour, performs at festivals up and down the country and while he may be blowing his own trumpet, he’s pretty sure (and we are too) he’s the only comedy performer, writer & actor in the world who has also been a professional rugby player, a teacher, a bodybuilder, and a finalist at the European Elvis Tribute Act Championship. Honestly.

Students learn the skills crucial to scene work, including emotion, listening, and transformation, as well as continue to hone skills learned in Level A, like ensemble, object work, and “yes, and.”
