The Capital’s one and only immersive comedy night is back with even more absurd characters for you to meet, games for you to play and LOLS for you to have! 

On arrival you can expect to meet everyone’s loveable 80’s throwback, slash slightly drunk showbiz host Quint Fontana ("expertly dysfunctional, dangerously dumb and very funny”- TheeWeeks’) as he ‘Mingles’ his way around the room greeting the guests with his quick wit and insatiable charm! Then it’s onto resident poet Oh Standfast as he explains the house rules, before we really get things under way. 

This is a night dedicated to hilarious and WTF acts ( think hot + alternative, ridicules cabaret and hip musical comedy)  as well as the guests popping into the HOUSE PARTY you’ll also be entertained throughout the evening with intermittent party games such as ‘Innuendo Charades’, ‘Tequila Roulette’ and ‘Musical Statues’. 

So what are you waiting for? Come along BUT be sure to leave your inhibitions at the door as this is one immersive comedy house party you wont forget in a hurry!!

Thom Foole's House Party Islington - Event Review

Full of energy, lots of fun, and about as quirky as it gets. Thom Foole's House Party is certainly something different! While football fans were crowded in the pub below watching Germany and France in the Euro 2016 semi-final, those wishing to...

Lovely pub. Great cause. One funny act. The Establishment was a funny act. Sara visited The Old Queen's Head on 12 Dec 2016

It was a great evening...hilarious, irreverent, uniformly entertaining. Loose Brie in particularly had me in absolute tears, and A Ship of Fools was the perfect antidote to saccharine holiday bullshit. The Old Queen's Head is an awesome venue, and it was all in support of the fantastic work of Clowns Without Borders UK. Great stuff. Greg visited The Old Queen's Head on 12 Dec 2016

A very average comedy show. Good price but a real mix of acts ranging from terrible to reasonably funny. Free fringe quality in the main but for a good cause and nice venue. SimonVarley visited The Old Queen's Head on 12 Dec 2016

An absolutely hilarious night, the acts were all out standing. It had the perfect balance of character and musical comedy with lots of surreal and hilarious monents. The host made you feel at home from the start with me and my friends being pulled onto stage for a game of musical statues and tequila shots. Honestly such a fun night, I highly recommend it if you're looking for comedy with a difference.

It's OK- humor was a bit retrograde, and some of the acts went on WAY too long. We left before the headliner. Certainly wouldn't call this "cabaret" or "burlesque", it's more of very long comedy night. Denise visited The Old Queen's Head on 04 Aug 2016

Went with a group of work mates and friends last night, and had an absolute belter! The host was hilarious, and the acts were all great. I laughed to tears on several occasions. Would highly recommend! Really nice pub too, we got there early and had a couple before, thoroughly enjoyed the evening kisrty visited The Old Queen's Head on 04 Aug 2016
