was a bit of a brisk walk from the station but well worth it once we got there. really unique location and the GF was suitably impressed as she'd been wanting to go to a comedy night for a while so this was right up our alleys!

The comedy was pretty good but all made worth the while with the boat venue space. Love seeking out new comedy talent and these guys are really on top of the industry

even though you might not recognise any names off the line up, that's what comedy is all about - discovering talent and new acts. Really worth a go, I really enjoyed this place and it's a really cool venue too!

tried this place out before we went to carwash which is a weird turn of events but really loved it, wasn't all too aware of the line-up but the guys we had really cracked some funny bones, never been on a boat on the thames eiher which made it all that cooler

This is such a safe bet for a good laugh and a bit of fun. Whilst everyone wasn't my cup of tea, the boat venue is really cool and the performers that made me laugh I absolutely loved.

Never really thought that the first time i boarded a boat on the Thames it would be for comedy and dancing. Wasn't keen on all the performers, but had a hilarious night and would definitely recommend as an affordable comedy night in the city, especially bounding about on a boat too

Thought this was gonna be a bit of a write off to be honest but my boyfriend wanted to go so i went along and was actually pleasantly surprised! Had a really good laugh and thoroughly enjoyed the comedy spread,

Second Raplhdog - had a cracking time at this comedy show. Was a really good laugh and in a really unique place as well. Comedy on a boat is a first.

We came here as an office towards the end of last year and a few of my colleagues were falling off their chairs laughing, quite literally. Spot on if you're in need of a laugh

This was hands down the funniest night I've had in 2014. I've always been a bit scared of comedy shows in case they call you out! haah - but this was one really clever and different; the boat is pretty cool too! If I help spread the word can I get free tickets?! lol x

Really unique and intimate location on the boat. If you can go for drinks on the top deck first, some mind blowing views of London from there. The comedy was really high quality, whole room was crying.
