Komedia Bath operates in the beautiful former Beau Nash picture house, a grade one listed building on Westgate Street. Since opening in 2008 it has become an important element of the arts quarter in Bath and presents a large and diverse programme focused on comedy and music, and extending to cabaret, spoken word and kids events. Cornerstones of the programme include the all conquering Saturday night Krater Comedy Club, and the bi-monthly Ministry of Burlesque’s Twisted Cabaret. The venue has become a feature on the comedy touring circuit, hosting acts such as Russell Howard, Ross Noble, Jenny Eclair, The Boy With Tape on His Face and many others. Music shows have constantly increased in profile since opening with a wide range of genres attracted to the Komedia Bath including The Feeling, Kate Nash, Ronnie Size, Lulu, The Levellers, Ash, Bellowhead, Clare Teal, Candi Staton, Noah and the Whale, Dry the River, Fink, Frank Turner and Chase & Status.The venue boasts a 615 standing capacity and a 427 cabaret seated capacity which includes a balcony seating 173 people. Komedia Bath also operates a daytime Arts Cafe, offering the only menus in Bath that are accredited to the Soil Association Gold Standard. The Arts Cafe is host to VIP customers at the weekend and on weeknights often operates as a studio venue, with the regular Komedia open mic nights for aspiring performers. The project to develop the Beau Nash to host Komedia Bath won The Building Excellence Award for The Best Renovation of a Listed Building in the UK. Since opening the Komedia Bath has also won The Chortle Award for Best Venue in the West of England five times, cementing the venues position at the top tier of venues in the UK.

I love coming here after a few drinks in town, such a fun place to have a dance and finish of a evening. Classic cheesy music / disco

How did I not know about this place?! I've been living in Bath a few years now and hadn't been to Komedia before. We came to watch John Hegley last week and were blown away by how good the venue was and were surprised by how many acts we love have played here before! Will be back soon for sure!

Came to 2 shows, one in the main venue (Skindred, wow) and then The Wave Pictures in the arts cafe, amazing smaller vibe. Great sound, helpful staff. A must visit for all music lovers

I am local to Bath and as a child I remember the old Beau Nash a run down cinema. Komedia took on the property at the same time we had our first child and nights out became infrequent. So I'd not been to the venue till now. We met with another couple for the Saturday comedy. We were greeted by... More

Great location for a big group as you don't have to try to coordinate everyone to move from a restaurant to a bar to a club, it's so handy having everything in one venue. We went to one of the comedy nights with food package, the food was very good, comics were very funny and loved the relaxed club night... More

We had a pre concert supper at Komedia - I decided to chose hamburger & chips, something I rarely cook at home therefore a treat! I wasn't disappointed. Lovely food, well presented and served promptly given we needed to be organised before the gig began. It was so nice to eat simple, well prepared food using local ingredients and it... More

Four out of the ten in our party suffered with food poisoning. I have emailed the Komedia club but they no longer reply probably due to court proceedings. I am aware that many other visitors were ill that year and would like to hear if they received a refund as Komedia are filing my emails and I suspect this is... More
