Covid Survival Tier - Buy Us a Cuppa
$3
per month
NB: You will only be charged in Pounds Sterling (or your own currency)

£2.50 - the price of a monthly cuppa

For this tier,  you'll be helping keep Angel Comedy, an independent comedy venue, alive during an insane time of turbulence for the whole entertainment industry.

You will ALSO become part of our community and we will send our regular updates and funny videos and exclusive streams and workshops from time to time too.

Covid-19 is going to halt the work of all stand up comedians and comedy venues for the immediate future - because comedy REQUIRES people to be in a small confined space with large groups of a-symptomatic strangers, opening their mouths and expelling air upon each other.
Christ. we can hear the WHO having a panic attack from here.

It's a truly scary time for many people - but for a small independent comedy venue with no external funding - it could be an end to the whole kaboodle.
However with 2000 people giving us $3 a month we will be able to pay our rent and bills each month.

$3 (around £2.50) is the cost of a posh cup of tea, it's the cost of a on-sale box of milk tray, it's a quarter of the cost of a day's travel in London.

And when we emerge from this crazy time - you will still have a comedy venue to come to and enjoy, and laugh, learn, and relax in together.
Covid-19 survival tier - Buy Us A Pint
$5
per month
NB: You will only be charged in Pounds Sterling (or your own currency)

£4.25 - The price of an affordable pint

For this tier, you'll get everything from tier one, as well as the knowledge that you're helping keep Angel Comedy, an independent comedy venue, alive during an insane time of turbulence for the whole entertainment industry.

It's a truly scary time for many people - but for a small independent comedy venue with no external funding - it could be an end to the whole kaboodle.
However with around 1000 people giving us $5 a month we will be able to pay our rent and bills each month. 

$5 (£4.25) is the cost of an affordable pint, a posh cup of tea, it's the cost of a on-sale box of milk tray, it's a third of the cost of a day's travel in London.

And when we emerge from this crazy time - you will still have a comedy venue to come to and enjoy, and laugh, learn, and relax in.
Covid-19 Survival - Goodie Bag tier
Limited (84 of 300 remaining)
$9

About

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, Nish Kumar, Sara Pascoe, Tez Ilyas, Burt Kriesher, Romesh Ranganathan, Simon Amstell, Daniel Kitson, Angel Comedy is now very close to having to close.

Covid-19 has meant it cannot open it's doors - and it has fixed costs of £5000 a month (Rent and contractual bills). It needs your support to stay alive in the time.

The good news is that all it needs is a little support. A cup of tea a month from just 5% of people that have come through our doors in 2020 alone will help us.

WHO WE ARE:

"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. Acts such as Eddie Izzard, Maria Bamford, Sindhu Vee, Burt Kreishler, Romesh Ranganathan, Stewart Lee, Josie Long, Mae Martin, Sara Pascoe, Simon Amstell, Tim Key, Tez Ilyas, Nish Kumar, Aisling Bea, or the Legendary Daniel Kitson all drop by to do shows or test new material.

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 give 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.

Support Angel Comedy and the rewards will be manifold - not only will you help a unique and community focussed venue stay alive, but you'll also be part of a community and will get insight and extra footage and material that others don't get access to.

Actual Survival 

This amount (after VAT and Patreon/ Paypal fees) will 100% cover our costs monthly, and (depending on the month) might give us a small safety buffer for any extra small bills that come in - but it will help us beyond surviving hand-to-mouth, month-by-month. We understand that people’s circumstances will change over time, and they may not be able to continue their support. A little extra leeway reduces the likelihood of us falling short if Covid-19 keeps us closed beyond August (God forbid).

FYI - Any additional funds will also go into supportive schemes for our community of comedians:

  • Free classes for comics on live streaming
  • Use of our facilities for free / by donation (post lockdown)
  • Free writing workshops daily
  • Paying performers to live stream daily so they have an income once the strict lockdown finishes
  • A fund for mental health - to give comedians access to counsellors and low-cost therapy for free
  • Helping comedians with logistics (applying for universal credit etc). Comedians as a group aren’t the best at navigating bureaucracy, and we want to be able to offer support to those who need it.

As an independent comedy venue, The Bill Murray and Angel Comedy get no external funding. Every year we offer stage time, training and paid gigs to more comedians than any other comedy club in the UK.

We provide a unique community-focused venue providing opportunities across the industry including new talent, as well as offering audiences a chance to see some of the biggest comedians in the world.

Reaching this goal through your support means that we are not only able to to open our doors to audiences again once live performances become safe, but we’re also able to offer support in turn to the performers who make up our community.
