Southwell Comedy Club – Saracens Head Hotel

Southwell Comedy Club by Funhouse takes place on the second Thursday of each month, as well as occasional extra shows, in the function room at The Saracen’s Head Hotel.

Having previously featured acts including Hal Cruttenden, Joe Lycett and Gary Delaney, it is regarded by many top acts as one of the best comedy club nights in the country.

“Great value for two laughter-filled hours of comedy and right on my doorstep too! I’ve seen some hilarious new acts and some famous ones from TV too. Amazing value. Definitely recommend for a great night’s entertainment.” (Pippa Richens)
