Starting out above a strip club, in 1982 they moved to Leicester Square at a premises they were able to take over formally in 1985.The club was the focus of the "alternative comedy" boom in the early 1980s and helped start the careers of many comedians, including Paul Merton, French & Saunders, Alexei Sayle, Rik Mayall, Adrian Edmondson, Ben Elton, Mark Thomas, Andrew Bailey, Pat Condell and John Sparkes.In October 1985, an improvisational group called The Comedy Store Players was formed, consisting of Mike Myers, Neil Mullarkey, Kit Hollerbach, Dave Cohen and Paul Merton. The group has had several lineup changes over the years, and now features a rotating team of Neil Mullarkey, Paul Merton, Josie Lawrence, Richard Vranch (a comedy improviser who also plays piano), Jim Sweeney, Lee Simpson and Andy Smart, together with frequent guest appearances. Several of The Comedy Store Players appeared on the BBC Radio 4 and Channel 4 comedy game show Whose Line Is It Anyway?.

And remember Dr Sketchy isn't about being an amazing artist, it’s about having a go! So don't be shy and put pencil to paper, move it around and see what happens – you might be surprised!

Since opening in 2007 the 1901 Arts Club has turned into the lively hub of London's artistic community that Joji Hattori envisaged when he started the project. Used as an events venue and a central and beautiful space to rehearse and make music, it's frequented by chamber music ensembles, soloists, orchestras and societies.
Located on the vibrant South Bank of the Thames, the 1901 Arts Club is a unique venue dedicated to supporting artistic expression and bringing together musicians, artists and persons who share an appreciation for the arts. Inspired by Europe's salon culture, the Club seeks to foster conversation, collaboration, and the exchange of ideas in an intimate setting... and now on Facebook.
The Club is an elegant venue that can be hired exclusively to host single or regular events, providing a private atmosphere not only conducive to informal gatherings, but also business meetings, public recitals, corporate entertainment and private parties.
We offer bespoke packages for celebrations, recitals or small conferences that include mouthwatering catering, fine hospitality and entertainment, should you require.
Built in 1901 as a schoolmaster's house, the building maintains its late Victorian exterior while the Club's beautifully decorated rooms re-create the intimate ambience of a private salon. With a performance space, meeting room, terrace and bar among its facilities, the venue offers opportunities to make music with colleagues and friends, to meet with like-minded people, and to enjoy gatherings of all genres.
Ladies and Gentlemen, leave your real life at the door and join us for a thrilling festival experience.
Launched in 2012, at its heart lies a colossal Spiegeltent bursting with a programme of the finest international cabaret, music and circus. A world of circus, sideshows and strange curiosities. A place of unusual surprises and daring thrills presented by the trailblazing gentlemen who brought you Udderbelly (the upside-down purple cow), and the marvelous team at Southbank Centre.
With an array of the grandest, wildest, most magnificent and downright weirdest shows on the planet, Ladies and gentlemen, I guarantee that never before will you have seen such an amazing spectacle!
