What goes on at Komedia Brighton?

Could you first introduce yourself for the reader?

My name is Kelly Edwards-Good and I’m the Press & Marketing Officer at Komedia Brighton.

What happens at the organisation?

We are an arts venue that puts on over 700 events a year including comedy, music, club nights, spoken word, theatre, kids shows, cabaret and more.

What do you offer to young people?

Quite a few of our gigs and events are for 14+ so there’s plenty to choose from. We also work with BIMM (British and Irish Modern Music Institute) by regularly hosting their student showcase events. 

What activities are most popular for young people and why?

If young people are over 18, cIub nights are always popular! We also have live music and quite a few events during Brighton Fringe. Basically, it’s usually the more weird and wonderful aspects of our programme.

Have you seen any change in the industry over the last few years? Is it positive or negative?

I think lately with Brexit uncertainty people are less willing to spend money going out. Also, we receive no Arts Council funding because of the cuts a few years ago and we could offer a more diverse programme if we had that as those events wouldn’t rely solely on ticket revenue.

What would you like to promote to young people at the moment?

If you’re over 18, our Krater Comedy Club is our flagship comedy show featuring several to-circuit comedians and our award-winning MC. This is on every week Fri-Sun year-round (and Thursdays too in January and the summer holidays). 

Tickets for some of these shows are just £6 if you’re a student or under 26 years old. If you’re under 18 we have lots of great gigs and also be sure come down during Brighton Fringe for some weird and wonderful comedy and theatre!

Where can people find out more about the work you do?
