Welcome to Red Imp Comedy Club
Walthamstow’s Premier Comedy Club
Home of great stand up comedy in East London
AAAAND were back in the room!
Thanks to the vaccine and people following the rules life is slowly getting back to normal. Comedian’s haven’t really worked since this time last year so we are having …….
BACK IN THE SADDLE SEASON
where our favourite comedians can dust off their jokes or road test new ones. We’ve got gigs on twice a month at our lovely temporary socially distanced venue TRADES HALL where the drinks are lovely and cheap and tickets are cheaper for members. Become one HERE
We are back running some shows in our original home the ROSE AND CROWN on Hoe St. Please keep an eye on which venue your tickets are for.
We’ve got 2 fabulous nights with excellent famous comedians doing works in progress to warm up and hone their tours.
Red Imp T&Cs: Whilst we can’t insist we would ask that you do a lateral flow test before coming to our shows and encourage you to wear a mask at all times unless you are physically drinking. One way system in place. We reserve the right to refuse entry or eject anyone being a dick. If the gigs are cancelled or moved for Pandemic reasons booking fees won’t be refunded (sorry). Also cancellations for isolation or illness reasons wil only be vaild 24hrs before the gig not on the day. If you are sick you are welcome to sell the ticket on if you notify us in advance email@example.com
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 chance. sign 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 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
*PLEASE NOTE START TIME OF 8PM for on line shows*

In non Pandemic times our 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.
