Tickets are limited for these occasional one-off comedy specials, at Above the Arts, one minute from Leicester Square tube.  Delight in the lively comedy entertainment, in our intimate performance space above the Arts Theatre in Great Newport Street, WC2H 7JB.

Comedy-goers are welcome to come straight from work to meet up before the show; the foyer bar/cafe is open from 5pm and then the comedy room opens at 7.15pm. Showtime is 7.45pm.

Tube: Leicester Square tube. Turn right from Exit 3, then quickly right into Great Newport Street; the Arts Theatre is just across the street (beyond some temporary scaffolding).

NB: Seating cannot be guaranteed, so late arrivals at sellout shows may have to stand.
Our comedy shows are
NOT suitable for works groups, stag or hen nights, NOR large single-gender groups.    (See Small Print below)

1) No under 14s (because there is a bar in the comedy room)
2) Local bye-laws require venues to not admit anyone who appears to have already been drinking alcohol, so come straight to the comedy night rather than meeting up in a bar/pub.
3) Because of potential annoyance to others, single gender groups (including HEN and STAG nights, and 'happy' office/work parties) of six or more will not be admitted.
4) Anyone causing a nuisance or disturbance will be required to leave. 
The venue (not the comedy night) have responsibility for the above.
NB: No refund will be made in any of these circumstances, because ii is assumed that anyone coming for the comedy show is aware of, and accepts, these terms.
5) While every effort is made to ensure that the comedians who appear are those named above, occasionally performers may unexpectedly become unavailable, so do check if you are coming to see a particular comedian. Neither the unavailable comedian nor Amused Moose Comedy accept any liability in respect of their non-appearance/replacement, but Amused Moose Comedy will do all possible to replace them with another comedian of similar or higher standing
