RED IMP West End The Union Sessions in partnership with The Union Club

we are expanding our Red Imp empire up West innit:)


In order to get brilliant high profile acts we have them come to our lovely gig to try out new jokes- what’s know as “work in progress” or “previews”. This means they will be testing out material, using notes etc. We pride ourselves on being a gig that big acts like to warm up at due to our fabulously amazing audiences.

We have announced 2/3 of our preview season for July. Acts so far include Omid Djalili, Josh Widdicombe, Hal Cruttenden, Mark Watson, Jo Caulfield, Josie Long, Stephen K Amos, Helen Bauer, Paul Sinha, Laura Lexx, Simon Munnery, Lucy Porter with plenty more in the pipeline.



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

 As well as ferreting away booking up awesome acts for the spring season like Zoe Lyons and Milton Jones we have been working tirelessly to book up our famous July Edinburgh Preview season. Acts so far include Stewart Lee, Josie Long, Andrew Maxwell, Stephen K Amos, Helen Bauer, Paul Sinha, Laura Lexx, Simon Munnery, Lucy Porter with plenty more in the pipeline.


“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.
