Komedia is Bath’s first community owned venue dedicated solely to live entertainment. Hosting over 400 events per year in a beautifully restored Grade II listed former Beau Nash cinema, Komedia Bath offers an unparalleled programme of comedy, music, cabaret, kids’ events, club nights and just about everything in between! The premier destination for touring entertainment in the region, Komedia hosts some of the biggest names in the comedy and music industries, with recent performers including Buzzcocks, Joe Lycett, Katherine Ryan, Russell Howard, Band of Skulls, Brian Fallon, and The Damned.

Komedia Bath operates two fully flexible, well equipped performance spaces. With three levels, the Main Auditorium has excellent sight lines and proximity to the audience, and offers the ideal platform for electric performances with audience sizes up to 780.

Alongside the Main Auditorium, Komedia Bath also operates The Electric Bar – and intimate live performance space and bar serving street food favourites and local beers and ciders.

Every Saturday, Komedia hosts their weekly comedy extravaganza, Krater Comedy Club. This is your chance to catch some of the best UK and international stand-up, and to witness the stars of tomorrow, live, right in the centre of Bath. Each show features three top comics and a cracking compere – plus, all Krater Comedy Club tickets include free entry into a post-show club night for you to party into the early hours!

Five time winner of the Chortle Award for Best Venue in the West and Wales, Komedia works closely with Bath’s many festivals. These include the Bath Comedy Festival, The Bath Festival, the Bath Children’s Literature Festival, Bath Fringe Festival, and the FilmBath Festival.

Komedia Bath aims to be accessible to all.

There is ramped, step-free access to the entrance, ticket desk, foyer, venue bar and main seating area, including handrails in the main Auditorium. There are fully accessible toilets on the ground floor, towards the back of the Auditorium. At Auditorium shows listed as “standing”, we are able to reserve wheelchair spaces and seating in a roped-off area on our raised mezzanine.

We advise wheelchair users to book in advance in order that we can reserve a suitable seating area for the party. Customers with disabilities of any kind are advised to contact us in advance via email or phone, in order that we can reserve appropriate seating for the party. While seating at the majority of our shows is listed as unreserved, we will always do our utmost to reserve appropriate seating to make your experience as easy and enjoyable as possible.

The balcony is only accessible via a wide staircase comprised of around 20 steps, with handrails on both sides. Balcony seating is tiered, and laid out in fixed rows of theatre-style, fold-down seats.

The bars have low level access for wheelchair users. Komedia welcome all assistance dogs.

Komedia is situated in the heart of Bath’s Cultural Quarter, neighbouring The Theatre Royal, Little Theatre Cinema, Ustinov/Egg Theatres, Thermae Spa and Casino.
