Chesham’s own Stand-Up Comedy Club
op class comedy returns to The Chess Suite at Chesham United Football
The club was
originally launched by the football club’s
Supporters’ Trust with a one-off fundraising show to raise money for repairs to the clubhouse. Norman Lovett (Holly from Red Dwarf) was the first headliner and he put on a fantastic show.
Building on that first success the club started to run as a monthly event and gradually brought in top quality sound and lighting. The formula has now developed into a stand up comedy club
that regularly attracts some of the most respected acts on the UK circuit.
A typical show consists of three comedians plus a compere and previous acts include regular TV and radio performers such as Terry Alderton, Robin Ince, Paul Tonkinson, Nick Revell, Jim Tavare and Zoe Lyons.
Advance booking is recommended to guarantee a seat and online
bookings can be made at the website. Tickets cost £10 plus card transaction fee when booked online in advance or £12 on the door subject to availability – most advance seats do tend to get booked. For further details check online at

Local acts are also often given the opportunity to perform in the ‘pre-show’ slot to get more experience.
