The Glee Club Birmingham

One of the biggest and most prestigious comedy venues in town, the Glee Club makes for a highly entertaining evening out. A swanky venue with a superb lineup of performances, it puts out quite the show. Most performers are well known on the comedy or music circuit, including the occasional star name such as Jack Dee, Johnny Vegas, James Blunt, and Supergrass. In addition to being prominent for its comedy shows, the club also hosts family shows, musical events, talk shows, and more. A fine venue for large groups, they are more than equipped to accommodate you whatever your occasion.
