Good Ship Comedy

Founded in Kilburn, migrated to Camden Town and now south of the river in West Norwood, Good Ship Comedy is your friendly neighbourhood comedy club.

For the past fifteen years they have featured some of the finest comics from the UK and international festival circuit including Josh Widdicombe, Sara Pascoe, Sindhu Vee, Nish Kumar, Rich Hall, Katherine Ryan and many, many more. All presented by resident compere, Ben Van der Velde.

“The perfect comedy club host – he is a master of audience interaction. The audience weren’t just warmed up, but pretty hysterical even before the first act of the night hit the stage." Huffington Post


Darren Harriott is one of the most exciting comedians on the circuit. Over the last few years, he has hosted Live at the Apollo, become a regular face on panel shows such Mock the Week and Don’t Hate the Playaz and recorded his own 4-part series - ‘Black Label’ - on BBC Radio 4. His work is recognised across the creative industries. Not only did he receive Nominations at Edinburgh for Best Comedy Show in 2019 and Best Newcomer in 2017, but he has also been immortalised in a mural in Birmingham which celebrates the city’s rising Stars. A confident performer with a captivating charm, Darren’s comedy deals with everything from subverting stereotypes, to everyday observations, to that juiciest of topics, religion – all with a cutting edge.
