About Us

The Komedia idea is rooted in a love of live performance and a belief in its power to add to the sum of human happiness. We welcome everyone who loves live entertainment in all its great diversity. Operating midscale venues in Brighton and Bath, alongside an in house production company, over the last 22 years Komedia has helped to launch the careers of dozens of the UKs best-known comics and become one of the most influential comedy brands in the country.

At our core is a passion for exciting, bold and independent comedy, music, film and live performance that is accessible without being obvious, cutting edge without being elitist and above all always fresh and exciting. Performers tell us “you get Komedia in your diary and you feel excited” because they know we’ll do everything we can to support them in giving the very best show they possibly can.

Komedia is owned by Colin Granger, Marina Kobler and Richard Daws and is an enterprising, creatively thriving and truly independent entertainment business that aims to start and develop careers; both of performers and staff. The growth, vitality and success of Komedia is down to the passion of these stakeholders and our ever loyal audiences. Komedia’s sustainability is maintained by the commitment of the shareholders and the long term support of the Dutch ethical bank Triodos.
