The only Open-Mic Comedy Clubs that are truly FREE in London. Come down, sign up, perform and get a FREE HD video of your set.

The Dead Comedian's Socks


A friendly, supportive atmosphere which allows comics to try out new material without the added pressure of ‘club politics’ or ‘keeping the promoter sweet’. Just turn up, perform and enjoy the rest of the show.


Dead Comedian’s Socks Open-Mic events are always absolutely FREE. There are no ‘Pay to Play’ or ‘Stealth taxes’ for performing. It’s about your new material and your stage-time. On top of that we actually give you something in return. You get a HD Multi-cam edited video of your set AND a MP3 audio file


Does it go without saying we put on funny shows? No, never! It’s always worth saying this. We have a real audience who have expectations and we aim to deliver! As well as a great bill of acts in a great hosted show, we also always have a professional headliner closing the evenings entertainment.
