#158 of 257 in Museums in London
Founded by Leicester Square Theatre director Martin Witts, the Museum of Comedy is a brand new, immersive museum and performance venue, featuring iconic props and artefacts from our rich comedic history and housing one of the most comprehensive collections of Comedy memorabilia ever to be amassed in one place.

The museum has been lovingly put together by Martin from his collection of over six thousand artefacts and print from some the most iconic comedians and comedy shows both past and present, amassed during his career spanning over three decades in the comedy industry.

See comic artefacts from Tommy Cooper’s handmade magic props to Steptoe and Son’s stuffed bear! Plus Leicester Square Theatre favourite Bill Bailey’s iconic 6-neck guitar.

Accompanying the collection will be revolving exhibitions, currently Steve Ullathorne’s stylish and contemporary images of current comedy stars The Comic Collection.

Museum facilities include The Cooper Room, a state of the art traditional performance space hosting all kinds of comedy performance, from theatre and stand up to silent film. The Museum is also home to The Comedy Academy, an educational facility for comedy writing performance and production.

The Museum of Comedy. Shining a light on the stars of British comedy.

  • Wonderful place. Lovely cozy mini museum underneath the big one, with a wealth of unique comedy artefacts and history, regularly putting on some of the best comedians to be seen in an intimate (50 person?) room. Lovely bar, too, and the staff are wonderful people. Can't recommend more.
  • Great comedy, amazing venu with great decor. Unfortunately small bar but good service. Cramped seating but quickly forgotten for the amazing atmosphere
