The Bath Comedy Festival has been designed to attract the cream of cutting edge comedy and to encourage stand up, street theatre, caricature, film, plays, writers, artists, workshops, competitions and general humorous invention.
To create a truly memorable festival full of anticipation and comic firsts, we aim to attract everyone from leading headline stars to innovative fledgling acts who will become the greats of the future.
Minimal up front costs
All we ask is for is an admin fee of £50 per act to give you a section in the official printed programme including photo, description and all key facts (see below), and booking details. These details will also appear in the What's On section of this website. This fee should be paid by cheque, made payable to 'Bath Comedy Festival' and posted to Bath Comedy Festival, 4a Sussex Place, Bath BA2 4LA.
We would be grateful for a handful of your best reserved seats which we can offer to sponsors and we can give away as prizes via the media.
