Great night of comedy.

We booked for the late show of comedy on a Saturday. Three great stand ups who really made it interactive for the crowd. Really nice small venue too.

Great atmosphere. Good food - ordered and brought to out seats in record time considering the place was jam packed. Brilliant atmosphere and good variety of acts. Looking forward to going again.

A comedy night out here is truly funny. I have quite a dry sense of humour but I have been a few times to comedy nights and always left with tummy ache I've been laughing so much. Paid £8 recently with groupon deal plus comedy. Absolute bargain. Only thing is the burger supplied was incredibly dry and not very pleasant.... More

Been here twice now and have had such a great time. The comedy nights are always very funny and I haven't been disappointed by any of the acts. The food is really nice but there could be more staff on the bars before the show. Overall it's a great night out and not too expensive.

Never know what to expect when visiting this type of thing. The food was okay although we arrived a little too late and therefore the choice was limited. However the comedians were really funny great nights entertainment. If they hadn't run out of most things this would've been a top rating for us due to the whole experience of the... More

Went to see T2 Trainspotting on a miserable Saturday afternoon and was really impressed with the venue. Great location in The Lanes of Brighton so plenty to do afterwards even though it was snowing! We arrived a little early but had time for a drink from the small but well equipped bar and we could even take a glass of... More

Having been here before in a large group and had a fab night when John Moloney was comparing (he took no prisoners) with Larry Dean as one of the artists on stage, my friend and I found ourselves in Brighton for the evening with no plans. We went online and purchased two tickets before heading over. We stood in the... More

Visited here on a Thursday evening. The staff were very organised and helpful, we were seated quickly and the food arrived very swiftly! The MC and all four comedians were absolutely fantastic. Will definitely be back.

We went to the Komedia earlier in the day and purchased the tickets which were approx £16.50 each and because we were buying them earlier we were able to reserve a table for all of us to sit...
