London's finest floating comedy club aboard the Tattershall Castle. It's a unique opportunity to enjoy a fantastic night out on a beautiful paddle steamer, which is permanently moored in the West End opposite The London Eye.
The shows have four top comics with the occasional special guest and there are regular intervals so you can keep your drinks topped up.
The boat has four air-conditioned bars with fantastic views across the Thames. Shows run on Fridays and Saturdays. The admission price on the weekend also includes entrance to the night-club, which plays a mixture of classic floor fillers and the best new releases...it's perfect for parties or couples who want to laugh, eat and drink on board a boat!

Much in demand as an act, Alistair Barrie has forged a reputation for himself as one of the top comperes to emerge in recent years. His deceptively friendly and engaging stage presence masks a sharp, dry wit which can be turned to subjects as diverse as suicide bombers in the Middle East to the perils of flying EasyJet. Despite a fondness for topical material, any performance is likely to be peppered with some inspired silliness and a little audience-related improvisation. 'Eloquent, slick and dynamic' (www.Chortle.co.uk) 'One of the circuit's classiest stand ups’ (London is Funny) 'Smart, slick and truly funny. Don't take my word for it, check him out yourself’ (Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke) 'Barrie has a casually sardonic sense of humour and is sharp as a guillotine blade. Woe betide the bloody fool who tries to heckle him' (Cape Town Argus).
