Community

Our community took us from a once a week gig above a pub, to a seven nights a week “Comedy Institution”. Covid could have been the end, but your donations & love helped us survive the ravages of the pandemic. And we love you back! Everyone should have the chance to see great comedy, irrespective of their wage, and in this 'industry', comedians need all the help they can get. We were built by comedians, for comedians. You know it's true/ Everything we do/ We do it for you! (Guitar solo)

Catherine Bohart

Upcoming Shows

Gigless LIVE!

8:00pm on Sunday 14th November 2021 - The Bill Murray, London

Catherine’s always been a firm favourite at the club, whether that’s with her solo shows or on her monthly show Gigless that she does with Helen Bauer, Andrew White, and some of their comedy friends. It’s always fun to see the interplay between Helen’s chaos and Catherine’s more controlled stage presence. They work so well together they’ve started a new podcast, Trusty Hogs, which has already climbed into the top 100 comedy podcasts.

Catherine has been gigging with us for ages, so it’s great to see her appear on shows like the Mash Report, or a myriad of other shows on comedy central or the BBC.

Catch her shows, she’s hilarious. We’re big fans, and so should you be.

Rob has been playing us since the club began, regaling us with his poetry and unique comic vision.

I used to love seeking his shows out in Edinburgh each year, always in the same tiny room deep within the bowels of the earth, that seemed to require a different route each time. Every show was like an hour long hug, with gentle, beautiful jokes and some real barnstormers.

Then one year I went to find his show and it was in a much (much!) bigger room, and I queued to squeeze my way into the sold out show. I’ve since seen him opening at the South Bank centre for Tim Key. The word is out – no-one else is doing quite what Rob does. I love taking a walk in Rob’s world. It’s a better world than ours, and it seems like a lot of people feel the same!

Of course, some of that came from him winning Dave’s Joke of the Fringe back in 2013, which he talks about there with his typical bemusement. The bigger profile also got him some reviews from Daniel Kitson, Scroobius Pip, Paddy Considine & Vanessa Feltz – life goals achieved!

Stewart Lee

Upcoming Shows


Obviously it’s a real privilege to have the 41st best stand-up ever! perform at our venue, and whilst he has described his own performance as, “positively Neanderthal, suggesting a jungle-dwelling pygmy, struggling to coax notes out of a clarinet that has fallen from a passing aircraft,” we think he’s one of the best out there. Not that he’s for everyone, of course.

Helen Bauer

Upcoming Shows

Gigless LIVE!

8:00pm on Sunday 14th November 2021 - The Bill Murray, London

Helen’s long been a firm club favourite since she burst onto the London scene having learnt her comedy craft in Berlin, as one does. If you’ve not seen her on one of our mixed bill shows, you won’t believe how someone can totally transform a room in just 10 minutes.

It was very clear from the start that she was a major talent, and she in 2018 she was already a finalist for the BBC’s New Comedy Award. She followed that up with 2019’s Little Miss Baby Angel Face (I’m sure that was a nod to us), and I can honestly say that it was one of my favourite shows in Edinburgh that year, and was one that I heard different people talking about for months afterwards.

Over the pandemic Helen teamed up with Catherine Bohart for their award winning online comedy night Gigless, which now has a monthly live residency with us. At the last one Helen decided to scrap the usual walk on announcement and instead just start serenading everyone with Whitney Houston bangers. It slapped.

In general you can tell how great a comedian is by how often all the bar staff abandon their posts to rush in and watch them. God forbid you try and get a pint when Helen’s on stage.

If you haven’t seen her yet then you are missing out on bragging rights when she inevitably becomes as famous as she will be. And more importantly, you’re missing out on one of the funniest and most unique voices on the circuit today.

Nish Kumar

Upcoming Shows


Nish has always been a real favourite of ours, and been a great friend to the club over the years. See if you can find his plaque for… a… prize? (must accept hearty congratulations as a prize)

Nish has worked up several shows with us, such as the wonderful It’s In Your Nature to Destroy Yourselves, and the current one he’s working on called Control.

You’ve probably seen him on the Mash Report, or its reincarnation as Late Night Mash. You’ve probably heard him on The Bugle, or Newsjack, or quite frankly on any of the amazing TV & radio programmes he’s been contributing to or hosting. If you don’t know Nish yet then get ready for a whole load of laughs.

There’s really not too much more to say about Nish that you probably don’t know already. He’s a lovely guy, and we’re always happy to have him and his side splitting shows in our lucky, lucky venue.

Bridget Christie

It’s a real privilege to have Bridget play at our club. She’s a comic with an astonishing range, playful & surreal at times but never afraid to make a hard hitting point.

Her show A Bic for Her won the Edinburgh Comedy award, and she’s also won multiple Chortle awards for tours and her radio show Mind The Gap.

Bridget worked up her shows Stand Up For Her (which made her the first British woman to have a stand up special on Netflix) and What Now? with us, and she’s currently building her show Who Am I? If you’re lucky, Bridget has often popped down to do an unannounced spot in our mixed bill Angel Comedy shows. When she’s not with us or touring she’s often on TV, whether on panel shows or as an actress.

Yuriko Kotani has been one of our favourite acts since she first did some open mics with us. We loved her way with words, even, as she jokes, her English “still like this.” A great mixture of deadpan and impassioned, it’s been wonderful to watch her grow and start doing solo shows.

One of my favourite memories of working with her was one of the first shows she put on at the Bill Murray. She came in trepidatiously, asking if she’d sold any tickets. She had no idea she’d sold out the room, and was greeted like a rockstar.
