The Comedy Store Players

Watch a group of comedy masters at work at the Comedy Store. Peter Gray reports.

The most consistently funny evening of comedy in London in our humble opinion, the Comedy Store Players are a must see for comedy lovers.

The group are absolute masters at working a crowd, softening the room up with subtle wit before going in for the kill with a seemingly neverending series of belly laughs.

There are six members of the Comedy Store gang – Josie Lawrence, Lee Simpson, Andy Smart, Neil Mullarkey, Steve Steen and Steve Edis – and each has their own distinct and uniquely funny personality and style. 

Believe us when we say that once you’ve seen these guys, you will find it hard to watch anyone else do improv.

Oh heck, don’t take our word of it, here’s what the critics are saying:

“Comedy Store Players: A supportive crowd wills on six brave performers who arrive with no script and not the faintest idea of what will happen. Through improvisation they create whole sketches and comic dramas that are amazingly inventive and sometimes take off into flights of surreal brilliance.
Whose Line Is it Anyway is a pale TV imitation”.

– The Daily Telegraph

“These are masters of their craft and there wasn’t a dull moment. Terrific fun”.

– Manchester Evening News

“The best ad-lib ensemble in the UK”.

– London Evening Standard

“What happens when a bunch of the world’s most hilarious comedians come to town? Uproar, of course”.

– Banglore Times

“The troupe more than lives up to its hallowed reputation…the livewire skill underpinning all that wanton spontaneity quite takes your breath away”.

– Dominic Cavendish, Daily Telegraph.

Ok? Convinced?! We thought you might be.
