Cottingham Comedy Club, the village's only comedy venue, provides an unique comedy experience in many ways. This intimate club gets you up close and personal with the acts, many of whom are breaking through into TV, or are established acts from the UK and international comedy circuit. The Railway is
a welcoming venue and we have a dedicated room for the comedy, with regular breaks between the acts for you to lubricate your throats with laughter juice. With four acts and a compere it's great value for money at less than £2 per comedian. We think it's the most fun you can have with friends on a midweek night out.
Cottingham Comedy Club's March show is jam packed with award winners and gold standard comedians. A friendly atmosphere, top tier comedy and an excellent night out, what more could you ask for?
