The great mood-changer

So, what do you do when you need a bit of a pick-me-up and your in London? I head over to Greenwich.

Ok - you're in Greenwich, the nautical town of London, surrounded by pleasant pubs, outstanding views of the Thames, and of course the start of time (courtesy of the Greenwich Observatory). Your mood still hasn't lifted? If this unbelievable occurence takes place, don't worry - I've got just the tonic for you. Head for Creek Street, and you'll see an iconic building, with two people cast into the seemingly open windows. See them and you know we're heading Up the Creek...

So what makes it so special? Well, this place is pretty much a comedy institution - with some of the finest comedians London, if not England, has to offer. From Thursday to Sunday, the evenings are full of the delightful sounds of laughter - Thursday offering 'The Blackout', where 15 acts have 5 minutes to impress, or the lights go out on them - something to be seen for sure. Fridays and Saturdays are the big nights, where big-name acts join with up-and-coming talent to tickle the audiences collective funny-bone.

Sundays are not an afterthought though, as these are possibly the venues best nights, with stellar talent performing to make people forget entirely there is work in the morning.

Also, look out for special events that can crop up from time-to-time on different days, especially just before the annual trip up to Edinburgh festival, where many comedians spend their summer - as they will try out their acts for great value prices - and Up the Creek is a popular venue for this.

I don't think you need cheering up any more, so I'll stop here - just remember Up the Creek - the great mood changer...
