The After School Comedy Club

Comedy for grown-ups with childish fun at its heart.

London’s silliest, sell-out comedy night is moving to the Arcola Theatre. Grab your ticket for our barn-storming launch night on 1st October.

The very best of London’s comedy talent are out in force to bring you a night of belly laughs and bad behaviour – and if that wasn’t good enough, it’s all for an excellent cause! The After School Comedy Club raises funds towards teaching for Syria’s child refugees*.

Throw down your blazer and tie, leave that report behind and come join us and some of the hottest names in stand-up, including Grainne Maguire, Joe Jacobs and Richard Todd. After the show: DJs and dancing in the Arcola bar until 3am.

Strictly no homework allowed.

We are pleased to announce our stellar line up will include:

Joe Jacobs: As seen on Channel 4 and BBC Music, Joe is not only a comedian but a rapper and MC, who will be gracing our stage with his hilarious beats. Leicester Square New Comedian Finalist and Vanessa Feltz enthusiast.

Richard Todd: Winner of the 2012 Amused Moose Laugh Off, Richard brought his surreal humour to Channel 4 with the show Spatulahead. “Richard is a funny funny man. A properly talented comic”, Kate Copstick.

Grainne Maguire: As seen on BBC One, BBC Three, ITV and Comedy Central, Grainne wrote and starred in Radio 4 sitcom 28 Dates Later. Fresh from her appearance on Question Time and with a recent Rose D’Or win, we are delighted to have her headlining.

Of the 4 million Syrian refugees (and rising) that have fled their home country, half of that number are children. 8,000 so far have crossed Syria’s borders without accompaniment. Not only have these children been displaced from their homes and communities, they have also been bereft of formal education – some for as long as 4 years. The After School Comedy Club is raising money towards the Refugee Education Programme being run by the charity Jusoor: sending teachers into camps in Jordan and Lebanon.
