Welcome to  Red Imp Comedy Club 

Walthamstow’s Premier Comedy Club
Home of great stand up comedy in East London


AAAAND were back with a Christmas Comedy Bonanza




All our shows at the TRADES HALL are socially distanced and tickets are only sold to households plus bubbles in complience with the Tier 2 restrictions. Our seats are spread out and the windows in the hall will be open. The heating is fresh air circulated, not recycled. You will be asked to test and trace and your temperature will be taken upon arrival. As we are in a venue and not a pub you are not required to buy a substantial meal or even a scotch egg. This is a ticketed event and therefore is within the rules and the council are on board with our risk assesement. Masks are mandatory whilst moving around the hall. No mask, no entry. Table service only and please follow any one way systems in place. We want to keep you and our staff as safe as possible.






Seeing as you won’t get an office Christmas party this year, why not have a bespoke comedy show instead. Or even one for you and your mates. Quotes available from redimpcomedy@gmail.com




We have been forced to move to Walthamstow Trades Hall temporarily. This is all with the Rose & Crown’s blessing and we will be back there as soon as is practically possible as it’s been our home for nearly a decade now. Big thanks to the lovely folks at the Trades for giving us a foster home like an East London child evacuated during the war. We can fit a decent amount of people in safely and socially distanced. But remember the rules: you can only sit with members of your own household or someone you have already been bubbling with. Please don’t flout these rules and put Red Imp or the Trades at risk from closure or a huge fine.

We are currently programming shows so make sure you are signed up to the mailing list.

Our gig has evolved in such a way that we get a lot of TV names doing works in progress & tour warm ups ( long form solo shows)  as well as top quality circuit acts doing regular club night formats ( 3 acts on a mixed bill doing 20 mins each plus an MC). Whilst we get that you want to see “people off the telly” we’d also like to remind folks that all the people you see on tv started as unknowns at club nights like ours.  We always book the cream of the crop.

The tickets for all shows including the bigger names go out to our mailing list first then on general sale 24hrs later so sign up to be in with a chancesign up here

We have been providing great nights out in  Waltham Forest with top notch comedy for 8 years and people from Leyton, Leytonstone, Woodford, South Woodford, Chingford, Loughton, Hackney, Tottenham, Clapton, Stratford and even Southend travel to our amazing shows. But never from Stoke Newington. Their loss.

We also have the occasional show for kids which the adults secretly enjoy too. Keep an eye on our Twitter @Red_Imp_4_Kidz

HERE is a short clip of the brilliant but late JEREMY HARDY that we played at our last gig as we toasted his memory

“By feeding them only choicest comedy cuts available, Walthamstow’s up close and personal Red Imp Comedy club has hand-reared a discerning and imaginative audience as sassy and switched-on as the early alternative comedy crowds, and Susan Murray brings decades of experience to hosting and programming duties.” STEWART LEE

The venue is upstairs at Ye Olde Rose and Crown Theatre Bar, Hoe St, Walthamstow. It usually runs the first Wednesday or Thursday of the month but keep an eye on dates as it tends to move around depending on which acts we can get. Due to the age of the pub there is no disabled access as the room is up a windy staircase. We are very sorry. The owners of the pub are hoping to rectify this situation at some point.

Past acts include Tim Vine, Mark Thomas, Russell Kane, Jeremy Hardy, Arthur Smith, Sara Pascoe, Micky Flanagan, Omid Djalili,  Richard Herring, Bridget Christie, Mark Steel and Alan Carr but to name a few.

As well as famous acts, we also like to book the cream of the live circuit. Our club nights have three acts on, you may not have heard of them but be ASSURED we only put quality acts on. Just because they’ve not ‘been on the telly’ doesn’t mean they’re not brilliant. You have to remember that acts like Michael McIntyre started in clubs just like Red Imp.

Previews are when comics run in new material or warm up for a tour, they may be using notes.

Our mailing list loyal audience get first dibs on tickets.
