Welcome to  Red Imp Comedy Club 

Walthamstow’s Premier Comedy Club
Home of great stand up comedy in East London and one of the best mid sized clubs in London.


We are very very saddened by the terrible news of Sean Hughes’ death. He was a pioneer of comedy, a soulful man and a lovely guy. All of Team Imp’s thoughts go out to Sean’s family and friends. He will be very much missed by us. Such an excellent comic and a genuine loss to the comedy community. R. I.P buddy:(

“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 Thursday of the month but keep an eye on dates as it tends to move around depending on which acts we can get.

Past acts include Tim Vine, Mark Thomas, Russell Kane, Jeremy Hardy, Arthur Smith, Micky Flanagan, Omid Djalili,  Richard Herring, Bridget Christie 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.

Normal club nights start at 9pm, preview shows start half an hour earlier at 8.30pm. 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.
