The Folkestone Comedy Club started in October 2015 after a drunken conversation in the pub.

It turned into something pretty great, and the whole first season sold out with some of the best comedians in the country coming to Folkestone and making some memorable nights.

The shows are all on Saturday nights and the new season will be on sale soon. There will always be five or more performers on a show and a great night is guaranteed.

The comedy line-ups are hand-picked by Dan Atkinson, Folkestone resident and a stand-up comic and writer for nearly twenty years. Dan has been the producer of Russell Howard’s Good News and he’s hell-bent on bringing some of the finest comics to town and some special guests as well…

The drinks couldn’t be in better hands; the Bar Captain is  the Folkestone Beer Festival King of Beer Peter Oetzmann, who will be selecting some fine local ales to accompany your night of laughs.

Why are there no videos of comedians on this site?

Because it’s just not the same. If you’ve never been to a live comedy gig, you should try it; it knocks Youtube comedy and TV comedy into a cocked hat. The videos just give you a pale imitation of these comedians. Trust us, they’re all amazing. So come down and experience the real thing for yourself. There’s nothing quite like it.
