We’re delighted to announce the inaugural WeGotTickets Independent Comedy Festival, a nationwide coalition of comedy. This fortnight long festival will see twenty of the UK’s best independent comedy clubs and promoters bring leading stand-up comics to a stage near you.
A new initiative we’ve put together with many of our leading comedy clients, the Festival is intended as a way of celebrating the grassroots and independent comedy scene. We’re offering discounted tickets as part of a Limited Pre Sale, and marketing the Festival in key comedy publications.
Our coalition of comedy includes The 100 Club, Outside the Box, Custard Comedy, XS Malarkey, Kettering Arts Centre, Red Imp Comedy, Downstairs at the Kings Head, the Musical Comedy Awards, Heathcotes Comedy Club, Poodle Club, Burning Duck Comedy Club, Lancaster Comedy Club, Castle Comedy, Funhouse Comedy, Lone Wolf Comedy Club, NCF! Comedy, Comedy On Tap, the Caroline of Brunswick and Headliners Chiswick.
This gaggle of comedy promoters includes many of the country’s finest, and some of the early line-up announcements are really exciting, including Jessica Fostekew and Catherine Bohart at The 100 Club in London for just £10, Simon Evans and Abandoman at Headliners in Chiswick, Glenn Wool at Kettering Arts Centre, The Raymond and Mr Timpkins Revue at Red Imp Comedy Club, and Lucinda Spragg at Brighton’s Caroline of Brunswick.
We hope that by bringing these comedy clubs together under one banner and shining a light on them, and offering discounted tickets to shows with top line-ups, we’ll help put some extra bums on seats and smiles on faces at a time when many in the sector are still recovering from the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.
If all goes well, we hope The WeGotTickets Independent Comedy Festival will become a regular part of the comedy calendar, and expand to include many more brilliant local comedy clubs.
