I got out of the habit of watching live stand-up almost ten years ago.
But as I walked past the Comedy Store a few weeks ago I noticed that a
good two-thirds of the names on the "this week's shows" board were
people who I remembered from when I was a frequent visitor to clubs.
The Banana Cabaret (upstairs at the Bedford in Balham) was always
reckoned to be on of the best local clubs. Big names still appear there
Chortle (http://chortle.co.uk/) is a good place to find out what's going
 It's a great club even if the walk home is more than five minutes :)
