Line-ups – We only book the best comedians from the UK and International circuit, many of whom are stars of radio and television. The comedians only perform at the club a few times a year to ensure every show is different, but always fun. All our up to date listings can be found on our website here. Please note although we do everything possible to prevent this however lineups are subject to change at short notice.
The shows on the weekend – Weekend shows run from 8.00pm until 10.30pm at the Tattershall Castle. The venues are open all day from noon if you fancy drinks and food before the show, and auditorium doors open at 7pm. There are 3 or 4 comedians and a compere in each show at the weekend, with regular breaks to keep your drinks topped up! All weekend ticket include free entry to PopWorld nightclub aboard The Tattershall Castle – playing the very best in fun pop classics, so you can dance the night away to the wee small hours.
Guinea Pig Club shows (Tuesday) – Guinea Pig Club shows run from 8-10pm, and will have at least 7 acts on, all trying out new material. We often get big names drop in that we can’t list, and have a fun relaxed atmosphere – its a great weeknight treat!
Seating – We have theatre-style seating. At the weekend all seats are pre-allocated and reserved for you until the show starts. On Tuesdays, we have unallocated seating, but we’ll do our best to get everyone in your party seated together – we’d recommend arriving early if you are a party of 4 or more. The shows regularly sell out, so early booking is advisable. We ask if you could arrive half an hour before show time and we’ll hold your seats until the show starts. If you have a seating preference please call us and we will do our best to help – 07932 658895
Venue for The Boat Show – Tuesdays, Fridays & Saturdays run at The Tattershall Castle, Victoria Embankment, London SW1A 2HR.
The boat is a beautifully refurbished paddle steamer, which is permanently moored on the Embankment just opposite the London Eye. Its a short 5 minute walk from Westminster Tube station with views of Big Ben and the London Eye.
The Tattershall Caste is permanently moored so does not travel down the river but you may feel it gently bob now and then. The shows are below deck so are inside, we have air-con or heating depending on the weather.
Groups – We cap groups at a maximum of 25 people unless specifically arranged with us in advance. Please do not book more than 25 tickets or the booking may be cancelled – this is to make sure we continue to have our friendly atmosphere at the club.
Behaviour – During the show we ask guests to avoid talking during the performance as this can disturbs other guests. Heckling is not permitted. Please treat staff, other guests and comedians with respect. Guests who persistently break these rules will be asked to leave by security and will not be refunded.
Behaviour Bond Policy – To help maintain the friendly atmosphere at the club we ask groups of 8 or more to sign a behaviour bond at the start of the night. This bond states that the party agrees not to heckle the comedians, persistently talk during the acts, disturb the show or use foul or abusive language towards guests or staff. With this bond we ask for a cash deposit to be held during the show of £5 per person. We will only retain this if one or more of your party are asked to leave for breaking the agreement, otherwise it will be returned to you at the end of the show.
