Hello! We’re Screaming with Laughter, London’s original daytime comedy club where baby can come too! With over 5 years experience of making tired parents laugh, we know how important it is to get out and do something other than just rhyme time. . .
‘I love Screaming with laughter, laughing with others is the fastest way to spread joy. Parents of young babies need it with with lack of sleep and all !’ (Nancy Hay – Mum)
All our clubs are set up like a normal comedy club, but with baby-friendly extras: pram parking, baby change facilities and a soft mat area for little wrigglers. You’re free to feed, change and rock your baby and the acts won’t make fun of you if you have to move around, whip out a boob or a bottle, or if your baby’s just having a bit of a shout and scream!
SWL was launched by comedian and TV star Lucy Porter. Grown out of a need to be able to gig but bring her babies to work, and fulfilling a much needed gap in the market for parents on paternity leave. In late 2016 Hatty Ashdown, mum, comedian and writer took over the club.
‘ It was a no brainer to take over the clubs and I’m very proud that I have been able to build on its great reputation and expand to over 4 clubs and festivals. ‘
‘I just want to ensure every club from Chiswick to Balham is a great day out for parents, grandparents, aunties, uncles, expectant mums and their friends‘
So come along and see the best acts from TV and the comedy circuit without having to pay for a sitter.
We look forward to making you and your baby laugh soon!
Note: recommended age limit for babies is around 12 months and under, as acts will perform their regular sets.
Expectant parents are also very welcome, as are grandparents, aunties and uncles, nannies, au pairs, carers and family friends.
Feel free to bring along as many people as you like, we just ask that each party contains at least one baby or pregnant woman.
