Hot Water Comedy Club was founded in 2010 by brothers Paul and Binty Blair, and since then has gone on to become one of the most successful comedy clubs in the world. 

The club started off at a nightclub in Liverpool City Centre, a venue which it quickly outgrew, eventually moving to The Crown Inn. Operating above this popular pup saw the brand go from strength to strength, establishing itself as a firm favourite amongst acts and audience alike. But another move was soon on the cards - Hot Water relocated again to The Holiday Inn, where it spent over three years delivering top class entertainment in partnership with the hotel chain. 

Where most owners would be happy, Paul and Binty decided that this was a stepping stone for something even bigger. In December 2016 they opened Liverpool’s first purpose built comedy club open 7 days a week, which rapidly achieved unprecedented success. Located on Seel Street in the heart of town it wasn’t long before the comedy club was attracting visitors from not just all over the UK, but all over the world. 

The club was quickly selling out every night of the week, and the brothers realised another venue was needed to keep up with demand. In July 2018 they opened a second comedy club, this time in Hardman Street at the iconic ‘Magnet’ venue. 

Their latest expansion came in April 2019 when the club expanded into Manchester, running a weekly comedy show at Theatre Impossible on Peter Street. In less than ten years Hot Water Comedy Club has been on an incredible journey, from hosting a show in a nightclub to being one of the largest comedy chains in the UK.
