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 email me at [email protected] 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 stick around for a drink 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. We offer progression, and it's 100% transparent and democratic.
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 booked her before she was famous! Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer Award 2018 nominee returns to headline. She's got a blummin' super line in dry understatement that's right up my street, and soon yours too, as a result of us all moving in together.
Sooz's hour was one of the highlights of my Edinburgh last year, a buzzy fun hour about Sonic the Hedgehog that was, contrary to expectations, not just a framing device but almost entirely about Sonic the Hedgehog. She's also a spectacularly talented singer and musical comedian and will be opening the show with a bang, assuming that's one of the novelty sounds her keyboard is capable of producing.
Winner of the competition waaaaay back in March 2017. Rob's hour in Edinburgh was one of the best written and most thought-provoking I saw. Super-delighted to have him back to open the second section.
Winner of the January competition returns for his richly-deserved winner's spot. The first straight male winner of the competition for I think about twelve gigs. Good to see a bit of diversity eh?
