Total raised £10,075

raised so far



The BIll Murray/ Angel Comedy cannot open or will be at 1/3 capacity until the Covid-19 pandemic is over, and so it needs support to survive

by Angel Comedy in London, England, United Kingdom

We're still collecting donations

On the 1st November 2020 we'd raised £10,006 with 75 supporters in 56 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

 New stretch target

The Fixed Costs to keep The Bill Murray up and running are £14,750 a month - that's with a bare bone staff and minimum costs - along with fixed costs like rent. 

As long as we run, we will continue running free comedy workshops and open access shows.

With no end in sight for this Pandemic - and no reserves - Angel Comedy needs to raise as much as possible while we can.

If this crowdfunder gets super-popular and raises more than we need, any funds left over once the pandemic is over, will go to Angel Comedy Trust.

After 10 years building from a small open mic night once-a-week, to running a venue hosting over 50 shows a week, featuring acts like Eddie Izzard, Sindhu Vee, Stewart Lee, Josie Long, Maria Bamford, James Acaster, Bridget Christie, Nish Kumar, Sara Pascoe, Jamali Maddox, Burt Kriesher, Romesh Ranganathan, Simon Amstell, Daniel Kitson, as well as thousands more, Angel Comedy is now very close to having to close.

Covid-19 has meant it cannot open it's doors - or can only do so at 1/3 capacity. To remain a live, viable, Comedy club it needs £14,750 a month (That's rent of £5000 a month, bills of £750 a month and staff costs of £9,000 a month - even on reduced wages)

The good news is that all it needs is a little support.

The price of a cup of tea a month from just 5% of people that came through our doors in early 2020 alone will help us.


"It’s no fluke that Angel Comedy is constantly one of the most popular free clubs (if not one of the most popular clubs) in London: it’s consistently pretty frickin’ excellent" - Time Out

Angel Comedy runs 7 nights a week in Angel, Islington, with a LOT of free shows, but it also has bills of Stand up, Sketch, improv from new and established performers.

Angel Comedy provides a stage and work for more comedians than any other single venue in the country. It is totally independent and community funded. It gives a stage to everyone from Eddie Izzard to people doing their first ever stand up gig. Something that no other venue in the country can claim. And it puts on FREE shows every single night of the week, FREE workshops every week.
