The Bill Murray closes for at least two weeks

But it plans to live-stream shows instead.

Top London comedy venue The Bill Murray has announced it is to close for at least two weeks in light of the latest advice on the COVID-19 outbreak.

However, bosses have said they will be continuing ‘in spirit’ with a nightly live stream, starting this Sunday at 8pm.

The closure news came as it scooped a Chortle Award for best comedy venue in the capital. 

In a statement, they said: ‘This, combined with the conversations we’ve had with ticket-holders, acts and staff has truly brought home just how strong and loving this community is and how luck.'
