A triumphant return to indoor comedy for Bath Comedy with the new fortnightly Comedy Club gig at Widcombe Social!

Three top notch comedians in one night!

Covid-secure conditions incuding temperature checks, regular sanitising and cleaning, air conditioning, distancing disguised as cabaret seating, table service.

This week's star line-up:


Comedian, broadcaster and famously "grumpy old man", Arthur needs little or no introduction.

As a long term Patron of Bath Comedy Festival, and last year's recipient of the Bath Plug Award, we're delighted to welcome him back again.


"Her ability to make quirky connections allows her to build a compelling believable and richly funny picture of 21st century womanhood...Anyone who loves the work of Sarah Millican and Kerry Godliman will find plenty to enjoy here" - The Guardian


Natasha co-runs Bath Improv and has been teaching improvised comedy at Bath Spa University. After an early biological career killing insects with fungus, she then turned her skills to the corporate world. Here she found her sweet spot on stage. Natasha was a finalist in Komedia’s 2020 Comedy Launch Pad competition and received their prestigious ‘Badger of Honour’ as one to watch.

"a warmth and fluidity to her delivery that many seasoned pros’ are yet to master" - Ellie Rogers, Komedia Bath


Zany banter and sociological analysis with one of Bath's more erudite drunks.

"Matthew Alford is a trailblazing local loser"

Booking in advance not essential but highly recommended to secure a seat - we have a limited capacity for obvious reasons. Tables of up to six available, please book for your group. Any queries - please email mail@bathcomedy.com

Bar open to all from 5.30pm. Why not come early for 'Friday Night Social' and enjoy free live music in the Waterside Bar from 6-8pm.
