About the 99 Club
The 99 Club Limited is London’s leading comedy company. We have been awarded Best London Comedy Club for the last five years and work with the finest comedians in the country. We regularly host nights at multiple different locations which requires careful relationship management with those venues we work with. We have a small core team with much of the administrative work being done by employees working from home.
