A Festival showcase of hand-picked comedians for a fabulous Friday Night line-up! (NB Line-up subject to change)


Carey Marx
A circuit favourite for years, with his own blend of dark humour and a mischievous and gleeful delivery. His wilful disregard for the controversial and delicate is tempered beautifully by his ability to find joy in the most unexpected places.

"This is great comedy from a comedy master" **** The Scotsman

A unique stand-up, following a direction unlike any of his contemporaries, aided in no small way by his musical talent and a memory that would challenge a mindreader!

"Garnering peals of laughter, he is undoubtedly a quality performer" **** One 4 Review

David Eagle
Bursting onto the comedy scene just three years ago, David promptly won new act awards at Leicester, Bath and Nottingham comedy festivals, and has opened for the likes of Reg D Hunter and Boothby Graffoe.

"Just seen the future of stand-up comedy, and his name is David Eagle" - Boothby Graffoe
"Constantly hilarious, gag on gag, leaving an audience gasping in admiration, and applause that goes on for minutes" - Bath Echo

Yuriko Kotani
England-based Japanese comedian and the BBC Radio New Comedy Award winner.

"A must-see full of heart, passion and laughs" **** Broadway Baby

Christian Talbot
Direct from Dundrum, Ireland.

"Genial performer, relaxed and natural, friendly, funny and clever" - The Scotsman

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

As a long term Patron of Bath Comedy Festival, and Bath Plug Award recipient, we're always delighted to welcome him back.

Bar open to all from 5.00pm. Why not come early for 'Friday Night Social' and enjoy free live music in the Waterside Bar from 6-8pm.

Bar food menu of delicious home made dishes now available from 6pm too!
