The venue was good, two out there acts really funny and the main speaker was very funny. The only snag, space was very tight, the room was overly warm and no ac or fan, the after club had good music and yes the ac was put on. Overall I thorouly enjoyed the event and ibwould recommend it. javed visited Bar Rumba on 29 Jul 2017

We all loved it and had a great night out

We paid for the party package which included the 2 drink tokens and the nightclub afterwards. It was my first visit to Bar Rumba for the comedy carnival, and booked it for 5 friends. Everyone of us loved it. The acts where brilliant and each one varied a different type of comedy style. The only thing to let it down for us was, after the final act we left to go for a drink elsewhere, thinking 10pm was too early to be in a club. On the way out we asked at the door if the stamp we had would get us back in later, to which it would. We returned to the club a little later on, showed the bouncers our stamp and they asked us to go to the back of the queue which was fine. After 15/20 minutes in the queue, we were told 'it was too late to return as we had left it too late'. MG visited Bar Rumba on 31 Jan 2017

Enjoyable night overall. Saw 3 comedians, two of them were hilarious. Quite nice atmosphere, drinks were not cheap but can be expected at central London bar. I would recommend it for a group night out, follow by a meal in Chinatown. Diana visited Bar Rumba on 25 Jan 2017

The three acts were all very good -- loved the guy doing magic, Pete Firman. And the venue was fun -- nice to just go find a table and have a dance later, Really good night out!!

Crackin' night and was lucky to get a really good line up of comedians. The venue actually made for a really great atmosphere and made it an easy transition into full blown night out after!

As quite a few of the ones below have said I didn't think this would be the place for comedy but sure enough it was hilarious. We came for an office party and it was up there with our best yet, woudl recommend

Thanks for recommending our comedy club Ralph. We get quite a few work nights out on Fridays and they always seem to have a good time.
16 Jan 2015 by

Not your typical setting for a comedy night, but the acts were convincing and definitely made me laugh so can;t complain! Cheap and cheerful so a success for a friday night.

Agree with Sophie below, wouldn't have thought that Bar Rumba would actually be a great place for a comedy night. Can't say I had heard of any of the acts before but each was very funny and it made for a good night all round

Of all the places i thought we'd find a good comedy night, i kinda didn't think that Bar Rumba would be one of them. but they had some really great names, good night in all! x
