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.

My wife and I visited during a weekend in Bath and had a great time. We only purchased seating tickets and not the meal deal. Having turned up around 7.15pm, we got great seats on a shared table 2nd section from the stage. All 4 acts were brilliant and we left before the place got converted to a disco. Drinks... More

Do not order food here unless you enjoy paying for over priced, inedible, cold slop. The beer is also flat. You have been warned.

We came here as a large group of 30 for a friend's birthday and had a good evening. It was something different to do and the comedy was pretty good. The food was okay but to be honest, we weren't there for gourmet dining! After the comedy, the place turns into a pretty decent nightlub and as it was Haloween,... More

A group of us decided to have the three course meal and comedy night here for a hen night whilst staying in Bath. I had never been to a comedy club before. Found it to be quite good. My one friend said it was one of the better comedy nights she had ever been to and so my first experience... More

To be fair to Komedia, this wasn't really 'our thing' but it still wasn't the night out we were hoping for.

A little annoying having to always queue outside - does remind me of what it was like in the 70's! Once inside this converted cinema offers a great space to watch a live act. You can stand right up against the stage area and there are two raised areas next to the well stocked bar. Try the Bath Ale -... More

This is a review of the venue and not of the act we saw. Komedia used to be a cinema. It is still set out as such with a standing hall downstairs and an upper, seated balcony. It is a bit run down but this gives the venue a certain charm. The staff on duty were very helpful and polite.... More

I visited Komedia Bath in December to see Welsh choral group Only Men Aloud on their Christmas tour. The venue is usually used as a comedy club and although the unreserved tickets said seating would be in rows it actually turned out to be set out in tables and actually this worked very well as I was able to sit...

I went for a Christmas business event. Pleasant enough evening, though I think they struggled to cope with the numbers. The comedy act was ok ..(enjoyable enough, but rather average). Food pretty good, just a massive wait between courses. Bar staff fast, efficient and friendly, as you would expect. I'd recommend location - I do like old musical hall/club venues... More
