Fat Cat on TV!

Did you see the Fat Cat Comedy Club on telly? We were featured on BBC's Comedy Map of Britain. There are a couple of videos of Mark Watson reliving his first TV appearance all those years ago at our very own Fat Cat Comedy Club.


Every month the Fat Cat presents three (sometimes four!) comedians from the national and international comedy circuits, many are new faces, some are rising stars, and a some are old friends paying welcome return visit due to their unbridled popularity.

The Fat Cat Comedy Club has now established a great reputation on the comedy circuit. This is mainly down to the friendly, enthusiastic and slightly odd audiences it attracts. So be a part of it and maintain the Fat Cat Comedy Club as the biggest and best comedy club in the region.
