West London may be known for its upmarket neighbourhoods, but did you know it also has a fine selection of comedy clubs? Here are five of the best comedy clubs in West London to check out when you’re next in the area.

Go West Comedy Club

South Kensington’s Go West Comedy Club (also known as The South Kensington Comedy Club), books in both first-time comedy performers as well as more experienced and well-established acts for an evening guaranteed to be packed full of laughter. Located at the Hoop and Toy pub, the night features 12 acts from the open mic comedy circuit and is an absolute hit with West London locals. If you’re looking to get your endorphins flowing, this brilliant club is open every night of the week without fail.

The Bearcat Comedy Club

Founded in 1984, The Bearcat is one of London’s longest-running comedy clubs and continuously attracts the best names in the comedy circuit to perform in West London. Located in Twickenham’s The Turk’s Head, the legendary nightclub books in top-notch comedy entertainers and even throws in a few celebrity guest appearances from time to time. A true London treasure, this long-standing comedy club is worth a visit just for the history.

Crack Comedy Club continues to draw in audiences with its high-quality acts and friendly atmosphere.

Instant Laughs

This comedy nightclub is located just a few minutes away from Hammersmith station at The Grove bar and restaurant, and it has a smaller and more intimate feel to it, compared to other London comedy clubs. Instant Laughs itself is a comedy and production company set on bringing audiences fresh stand-up comedy performers. With 10-12 acts in one evening (all with five-minutes slots), the night is fast-paced and incredibly varied, making it different than many other clubs in the city.
