In autumn 2010 Komedia Bath won the Chortle Award for Best Comedy Venue in the West & Wales 2010. At a star-studded awards ceremony in London – hosted by comedy genius Mark Watson – Komedia walked away with the coveted award, beating many well-established venues across the West for the title.
“We have had a fantastic first 16 months – acts already love playing the venue and people have told us we have made their lives better by opening in Bath. This is the main and only industry venue award out there, and coupling this with our Brighton venue winning the Chortle Award for Best Comedy Venue in the South for a record seven times… well, we couldn’t be happier!”
– Richard Daws, Director and Komedia co-owner
Although big touring music acts, such as The Levellers and Seth Lakeman, and top comedians such as Russell Howard, John Bishop, Reginald D Hunter have all taken to the stage – the Bath venue is chiefly famed for its weekly stand-up comedy in the Krater Comedy Club. Having been described as bringing about ‘a brand new dawn for entertainment in Bath’ by VENUE, Komedia gives customers the option to wine and dine prior to, and during, the weekend comedy club – Komedia has the perfect food partner for the South West with Hugh Fernley Whittingstall’s River Cottage Canteen in house – as well as hosting Motorcity; a civilised and popular club straight after the show, which is free to Krater Comedy Club ticket holders. All this and more in the impressive and lovingly restored grade one listed venue!
Komedia Bath is the first Komedia-branded venue launched outside of Brighton, Sussex. Presenting a large and diverse arts and entertainment programme, the venue features international and national music, comedy, cabaret and unique film and dining events whilst also playing host every Saturday (and selected Fridays) to the all-conquering sell-out night Krater Comedy Club.
The Chortle Awards were set up in 2002 by the comedy website Chortle to honour the best of established stand-up comics currently working in the UK. As of 2002, the Chortle Awards are the only UK based awards that solely honour the live work of stand-up comedians at a professional level. The judging is done through a panel of judges and the votes of regular visitors at the Chortle website
