Friday night comedy at the Grey Horse

Welcome to the home of Kingston's original and longest running comedy night. 

A night of irresistible improv comedy from some of London's finest players. Kickstart the weekend with a razor-sharp, spontaneous, brand new and never-to-be-seen-again show that will leave you saying, like after ALL the best nights out, "you really had to be there…"

You'll be asked for suggestions which will be turned into unforgettable scenes, characters, and songs, all made up right there on the spot. Had a particularly eventful night out recently? They might just ask you about it…

"Man Alive" Consenting Adults: 2. The Women

Angela Huth speaks to lesbians from various different walks of life: from the content couple to the young androgynous girl who wants to be accepted; and the married wife who conceals it from her husband. (UK, 1967, 30 mins)


A closeted lawyer risks his career to bring a blackmailer to justice. (UK, 1961, 100 mins)
