An introduction to the Comedy Bunker, by Phil Smith – Comedy Bunker Promoter
Welcome to the Comedy Bunker: one of Britain’s best loved, longest-running Comedy Nights.
The list of talent that has graced our stage includes Graham Norton, Russell Brand, Ed Byrne, Harry Hill, Jimmy Carr, Sean Lock, Richard Blackwood, Al Murray, Jo Brand, Omid Djalili and Alan Carr. However, what our regular visitors know is that it’s nearly always the ‘regular’ shows - the ones showcasing headline comedians who are not necessarily household names - that provide the ingredients for the most exciting and memorable evenings.
With new comedians always emerging, we will always strive to find the best possible acts and bring them to the Comedy Bunker. Everything is set up to allow the performer to give the best show possible. For example, heckling is not encouraged, mobile phones are always requested to be turned off or set to silent. The bar inside the showroom does not serve whilst the performance is in progress and enough seats will always be available for everyone.
The Comedy Bunker has an over 16’s policy: 16 to 18 year-old guests are welcome by pre-arrangement. However, the front tables are reserved for guests aged over 18 only.
We have amazing comedians appearing at every single show - some returning to a venue that has become familiar to them, others making their debut with us. However, whether the names and faces are familiar to you or not, every show will feature leading performers from the UK or overseas who have distinguished themselves within the comedy industry. Come along to any show and you will see some of the funniest people in the world performing their own unique material. Every show is different. The only recurring features are our dedication to presenting an experience that is defined by quality and originality.
Enjoy the Bunker; you’re a part of it.
