Komedia is a green business


We are always aiming to be more sustainable as a business. Find out the ways in which we are using green alternatives by clicking on the links below…

We have installed a 32kW Solar Array, on the roof of our building, which provides the majority of our energy. Our other energy is provided by companies that offer renewable energy sources. Our gas is carbon neutral and 10% is renewable biogas, generated from organic matter like food and farm waste here in Britain.

We use local recycling company Recorra and currently recycle more than double the city’s average, including many items that most companies do not recycle. We recycle enough paper and card to save approximately 48 trees per year and our paper waste is made into packaging by Recorra and returned to public use. Annually we have removed over 30,000kg of carbon from being released into the environment.

We use glass to serve our drinks at all seated shows, but our licence stipulates we must serve in plastic for all standing events. We now use multiple use plastic cups to eliminate plastic waste. We have also stopped giving out plastic straws with our drinks.

Our main beer supplier is family-owned brewery Shepherd Neame, based in the South-East. Their locality greatly reduces the carbon footprint of our beer deliveries. Shepheard Neame still use an ancient spring beneath their brewery and their onsite Water Recovery Plant recycles their wastewater. 97% of the grain and hops they use is recycled into animal feed for local farms. Our guest taps (both ale and lager) are always Sussex based brewers such as; Abyss, Big Hug Brewing, Gunn BreweryUnbarredGood Things Brewery and more.

We offer an a range of plant-based food and vegan options and source our food from local businesses where possible, these include; Red RoasterReal PatisserieThe CheesemanBrighton Sausage Company, Gelato Gusto and more. All our meat is sourced from farms in the Home Counties. All the oil we use in our kitchen is recycled into renewable energy in the form of biodiesel.

We bank with Triodos, known as the world’s most sustainable bank. They are committed to ‘making the world a better place’ and are partners with Friends of the Earth. Triodos will only make investments in organisations designed to make a positive impact on society, culture and the environment.

We offer paperless ticketing. We also use Toucan Print, an eco-friendly printers and we have greatly reduced the amount of print we create in favour of digital media. We use hand dryers rather than paper towels, in our toilets, as our electricity is renewable.

We use Evans cleaning products, chosen because they develop chemicals that have the minimum environmental impact on the planet. They use the GreenTick system, which demonstrates which products can be proven to have the least impact and these are the products we use.

What people are saying...

Amazing experience with the Komedia staff. They have gone above and beyond to cater for my disabilities at a show on June 5th, making sure I am seated correctly and can easily access the area. Very rare experience nowadays. Thank you again for all your help!

Just the best place if you like comedy. The food is great, the show room cozy and personable. Excellent atmosphere every time. An amazing place to watch a live show. Highly recommended!

Always something interesting happening at Komedia. Probably the venue I find myself at most frequently due to the eclectic mix of acts, comedy, music, club nights, cabaret and random silliness! Feels like the heart of Brighton!

I had not been to this venue before and I have to say that I was very impressed… All the staff I encountered were friendly, helpful and cheerful. I will certainly return!!

This venue’s accessibility information on their website is outstanding. As an autistic wheelchair user it was so amazing to be able to see the layout/3D view of the whole venue… If more venues followed Komedia’s example the world would be a much better place!

We came here on the night of Brighton pride and had an amazing time. Lovely, clean venue with really friendly staff and saw it was clearly accessible.

Such a unique place you have such variety, they are really good at accommodating for the disabled. I loved the drag on a bus, 80’s night and more!! I keep coming back so they are doing something right.

I am happy to say that the customer service replied to my enquiry very quickly. They also have been very helpful and understanding.

Great show with great drinks and food – a fab Friday night, 100% recommend!

Always a fantastic night out! So great to be introduced to new comics with many many laughs throughout the evening

First time at a stand up comedy club and wasn’t sure what to expect. Whole thing was brilliant – friendly staff, good atmosphere, and the acts were hilarious. Laughed so much.Highly recommend.
