What Makes You Laugh?

A brief history of Calderdale Comedy Club

Calderdale Comedy Club was started and is run by award winning comedian and comedy promoter Mike Manera. Mike ran Upstairs at The Queens head in London and Funny First Mondays in St Albans. But he is probably best know for Piccadilly Comedy Club in London’s west end. The club opened in August 2011. it quickly established itself as one of the best comedy clubs in London. Traveller Magazine listed Piccadilly Comedy Club as the fourth best comedy club in the world. CLICK HERE for the full article. Even Mike didn’t think it was that good.
Time Out named Piccadilly Comedy Club as the sixth best comedy club in LondonCLICK HERE for the Time Out article.
Time Out cited Mike as a particularly unique promoter with a very hands-on attitude.
In the six and a half years that Piccadilly Comedy Club was open many great comedians regularly performed at the club. They included Nish Kumar, Katherine Ryan, Romesh Ranganathan, Hal Cruttenden, Ellie Taylor, Ian Stone, James Acaster, Tez Illyas, Luisa Omielan, Ben Pope and many many more.
One of the most successful nights was the annual Comedian of The Year Final, which helped launch a number of comedy careers. Here is a review of the 2016 final.

It wasn’t all plain sailing though. A fire damaged the venue, restricting the capacity of the venue for nearly a year. The club finally closed in January 2018 when Mike re-located to Sowerby Bridge in West Yorkshire. And now Mike is at it again launching Calderdale Comedy Club at the Sowerby Bridge Working Mens Club. The idea behind the club is to bring quality comedy at a great price to Calderdale. I am sure you will find a lot of laughs should you by a ticket.
