'Col is the perfect host. Great, friendly and funny, he moved everything along brilliantly.'

Barbara Nice

The Confessional is an independent professional comedy club located downstairs in the vault at Chapel 1877: a beautifully converted French-Italian Gothic themed chapel in the heart of Cardiff's city centre.

We bring some of the biggest names in stand-up comedy to the city plus support acts from all over the UK, hosted by resident MC Col Howarth in a friendly, intimate room with its own entrance and bar.

Our audiences are amazing and we are building a friendly community of comedy lovers!
