London's brand new Museum of Comedy can be found at The Undercroft, St George's Church, Bloomsbury Way (near the British Museum).
The museum offers a very friendly welcome and an extremely relaxed atmosphere. The main room is absolutely packed with comedy memorabilia stretching back many decades.
A side room - The Cooper Room - is dedicated to all things Tommy Cooper. A big screen replays scenes from his shows and there are many photographs and authentic props to be seen.
