Hurray! London's premier pay-what-you-like, no-kicking down, gender-balanced, zone 1 Saturday night comedy night!

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!


Some nights are on schoolnights.
QUANTUM LEOPARD is on a Saturday. Booze ahoy!

Some nights charge £20-25. 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, transphobia, ableism or whorephobia and no picking on the audience. QUANTUM LEOPARD is slightly sad that this even needs saying.

Some nights go on for *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.

Accessibility info:

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!


I've been booking Kate for longer than some of you have been alive, assuming that there are people reading this who are about nine and a half years old or less. A top notch political comic and activist who puts her money where her mouth is - a real Quantum Leopard favourite.


Joe Sutherland looks like he was maybe born before I started booking Kate, but this is largely as a result of good skincare rather than clean living. Wonderfully arch and acerbic thoughts on queerness and identity.


Winner of the August 2019 show's competition joins us for her super (splendid) ten-spot.


A couple of quick spots from two New York comics stopping in on their holidays. Marcia Belsky was 2018 Time Out NY's Comedian of the Year, and MIlly Tamarez has been all over Comedy Central and MTV. Catch them now before they go home!


Winner of the previous show's competition - enjoy the fruits of the last audience's wisdom. Look at us! Progression! Wheeee!
