Monkey Business Comedy Club is one of the most highly respected, influential and exciting Comedy Clubs in the UK today and has kick started the careers of many acts that are now household names .

Thursday Night

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 our new act nights aside from some others.

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

If, upon seeing you perform on a Thursday, we think you’re ready you may be invited to perform on a Saturday night.

If you don`t get  invited . It is not personal ,It might happen in the future when thought you are ready .




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 £5

with normally at least one top act on the bill



Monkey Business is booking all the acts that will be performing at Durham university`s event

for Amnesty International`s Secret Policeman`s ball to raise money and awareness . 

I will choose one new act over the following two months that deserves more recognition to perform in front of the approx 250 crowd on Saturday 6 June 2015 at Durham university`s event . I will announce the winning act around 1st May 2015 . 

All travel costs ,accommodation ,and food paid for


Many thanks.
