Monkey Business is always on the lookout for new talent with potential for our Saturday night shows. We carefully select acts to perform at Monkey Business, so that a reasonable standard and quality of comedy is maintained – it is just one of the things that sets us apart from many other new act nights .

If you would like to perform at Monkey Business please send a little info about yourself, a clip is good too ,a photo (if you have one) and your contact number to this email address:



If you are unable to make your spot for some reason, please notify us ahead of time (or risk being denied stage time in future).

Avoid rushing off after doing your set – it reflects badly on you and is impolite to the other acts.

Make sure you are prepared to perform material of a decent standard.

Be on time:

Doors open 7.00pm. Show starts 8.00 pm.

Please arrive by 7.15 pm

Your stage time will be between 5 & 7 minutes depending on how many performers are on the bill.

Saturday Night

Lets be honest .There are hardly any reputable clubs on a Saturday night that gives a chance to good new acts to have a look in .
I have now proudly addressed that .
 Monkey Business now has a revolutionary Saturday night Early shows at 7pm to give those good new acts decent stage time in my fantastic ace venue in Camden`s Holiday Inn hotel   before the main show .
We are proudly non bringer ,or pay to play ,but delighted if you help promote the gig .Friends of acts welcome at just £6.00 .

The great thing about this development is that there will now be a greater chance to progress to be included on the professional night .
Monkey Business has always played a signifcant part in fully supporting new acts ,and I am now delighted to say I can do even more .
If you feel that you are both funny and ready please send me a clip .

Send to thanks


REMEMBER, asking friends along to the show will help make the night a success.

Although acts are not obligated to bring friends, a big, friendly audience is never a bad thing. 

All performers are asked to do their very best in helping promote the night and the good news is it is

a reduced ticket price for friends who pay just £6 .00 on Thursdays and £6.00 only on Saturdays

with normally at least one top act on the bill

Many thanks.
