About Us

The biggest names. The hottest new acts. The best mixed bills.

Knock2bag Comedy Night, one of Time Out’s top 5 comedy clubs in London, hits Shoreditch and Hackney every month, bringing you an eclectic mix of big names and handpicked ‘ones to watch’.

We also produce Cardinal Burns presents…, hosted by Channel 4 sketch stars Seb Cardinal and Dustin Demri-Burns.

Show season runs from September to June. And you can find us at Rich Mix and MOTH Club. We’re 10 this year, so watch this space for news about our celebrations…

Time Out says: “For value for money, variety and consistently stunning line-ups, it’s hard to beat Knock2Bag. Plus, with clubs in both East and West London, it’s dead easy to pay them a visit, so you really have no excuse (unless you live in, like, Norwich or something.) The bills here are packed to the rafters, with seven or more top quality acts often in one night, and there is always a mix of inventive sketch troupes, weirdo character acts and slick stand-ups, from household names to the finest new comics. And no, we have no idea what the name means, so don’t ask.”
