Hurray! London's premier pay-what-you-like, no-kicking down, gender-balanced, zone 1 Saturday night comedy night!
***PLEASE NOTE QUANTUM LEOPARD IS NO LONGER BYOB. THERE IS A LOVELY BAR AT THE VENUE THOUGH***
Book a ticket and turn up! If you're not at venue for 1945 then we reserve the right to reassign your ticket to a walk-up (sorry!). We keep selling out and have to stay under fire safety capacity, so if someone books a ticket and then doesn't come it deprives someone else of the chance to see the show. If you can't come please message me and cancel, it'd be super helpful. Be a good person!
QUANTUM LEOPARD IS A LOVELY NIGHT
Some nights are on schoolnights.
QUANTUM LEOPARD is on a Saturday. Booze ahoy!
Some nights charge £15-25. Yeah, we love paying that much with the Tories in power.
QUANTUM LEOPARD trusts its audience - pay what you think the show is worth.
Some nights are fucking miles away.
QUANTUM LEOPARD is in zone 1, at 2Northdown, just by King's Cross station.
Some nights are happy with material victimising individual audience members or disempowered groups.
QUANTUM LEOPARD has a strict "no kicking down" policy on all material. No chav-bashing, racism, sexism, homophobia or transphobia, and no picking on the audience. QUANTUM LEOPARD is slightly sad that this even needs saying.
Some nights go on for fucking *ever*.
QUANTUM LEOPARD has regular breaks and finishes at 2230. Well, probably a bit after that. But not crazy late, so you can still do your fun stuff after. Or come to the pub with us! We're really nice!
Some nights let any old talentless chump on stage.
QUANTUM LEOPARD has a pro headliner every show, and hand-picked up-and-coming semi-pros doing shorter spots.
Some nights offer no progression for open mic acts.
QUANTUM LEOPARD has a new act competition - five open micers do five min spots - the winner of the audience vote gets a paid ten at a future gig. Democracy, people!
Venue is on the ground floor and wheelchair accessible. Extra wide doors and there is a wheelchair accessible toilet. We may need to jig seating around a little bit if your wheels are particularly bulky/have those Mad Max chariot spikes on the wheels so please let me know if you or a member of your group might be affected by this - I'm [email protected] Feel free to get in touch with any questions!
We've got Tony Law back, hurray! The crown prince of sustained and effective surrealism. You will have seen him on the telly, or, more realistically and prestigiously, bringing the audience to a rolling boil at a previous Quantum Leopard. Come see why the fuss!
Dark done properly by the deeply excellent Andrea Hubert.
Olga Koch won the Quantum Leopard competition a while back but couldn't do her slot at the time so I booked her in for the earliest slot she could do, which was this one. She then got nominated for Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Comedy Award this year and *literally* (figuratively) exploded. But she's keeping this booking because she likes to keep it real.
