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.

Since the November of 2016 there’s been 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’s courses, rehearsal space, community projects and more. Oh, and it’s also a lovely pub.

Following a bad break-up (is there ever a good break-up?), David somehow gained custody of Mittens. Blending his stand-up and storytelling, David leads you on a journey of what it’s truly like to be a cat owner, and the comical occurrences that come with it. “David has a wealth of jokes and off the cuff remarks.” Chortle

Sketchatron first roamed the earth 2008-2012 in many venues around the UK, becoming the biggest sketch comedy showcase in the country, hosting the best acts on the circuit at the time: Pappy’s, The Penny Dreadfuls, Anna & Katy, Will & Greg, Tommy & the Weeks and many, many more. Was it before your time? SKETCHATRON FEELS SORRY FOR YOU. Because it was brilliant. Actually some of those people are still around but boy, are they old now.

However, not all hope is not lost. Sketchatron resurrects gloriously at The Bill Murray to bring you the very best sketch comedy once again.
