Overview

A brand new, interactive and immersive museum for all the family, featuring iconic props and artefacts from our rich comedic history. Sit on a pew from Father Ted, enjoy our Comic exhibition and reminisce with original Tommy Cooper props! There's something for the kids with classic comedy board games, and why not see what's on and catch a Comedy performance in The Cooper Room.

Great comedy show line up but who would have thought so many fun quirky displays. My recommendation, see a show but go early for drinks and a really good nosey. Not a stand alone attraction yet but a great night out with a twist.

Pop in if you are walking past when it is open but do not make a special trip. The venue is used for comedy gigs too and probably perfect for that. It is a room with pictures of the owners favorite comedians and a few...More

Some fascinating bits of memorabilia, but the real reason to go is the shows. A small intimate venue, but host to some top class acts.

This is a large room with a load of memorabilia in it not really a museum as such, but it was nice to browse before seeing a show. The po faced Eastern European girl on the desk was really bored and couldn't muster a smile.

The Museum itself is home to assorted props and costumes etc from the hey day of British comedy shows, but for me this is just a nice distraction in the waiting area for the incredibly intimate performance space. Seating approx 80 people in the undercroft...More

Its worth the look round some of the stuff on display before going in to see one of the many comedians that have almost nightly. From new acts to established artists there is always something worth seeing.

Perhaps visit the venue to see a comedy show but certainly not worth five quid a head to visit the 'museum'. It's just a small collection of comedy memorabilia and a little library of books relating to entertainment. We were advised that a free tea...More
