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 Jack Whitehall, Russell Brand, 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.
Please be aware, that for the comfort of everyone, anyone disrupting the show will be asked to leave, without a refund. People have paid money to listen to the acts, not you. Acts have written material so they can get on with their job and shouldn’t have to compete with you because you fancy a chat or have had one too many.
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. Anyone booking tickets will automatically be added to our mailing list, unless you tell us otherwise. This will never be given to third parties. Why would it?
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.
