Crouch End is home to one of the oldest and most established comedy clubs in the world – Downstairs At The Kings Head
The club specialises in presenting great entertainment in a friendly and intimate environment. Founded in 1981 by Peter Grahame and Huw Thomas, the venue presents shows throughout the week that champion the Best of the New, be it comedy, music, spoken word, magic or dance.
A favourite of both audiences and performers, the venue prides itself on creating the right ambience for each event and providing unbeatable value for money. You’d be hard pushed to find any top comic who hasn’t passed through the doors of this venue on their way up, and the venue are privileged to find that most continue to perform with them long after they’ve become “too big.”
To celebrate the club’s 30th birthday, the first Crouch End Comedy Festival took place in October 2015. It was a fantastic, record-breaking week. In total over 60 acts appeared and the festival was Critic’s Choice in Time Out
