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.

If you enjoy a good comedy club then you have to visit Komedia. Great deals on food, fantastic setting in this old style theatre and super friendly staff. Great for couple and big parties. Turns into a club afterwards and worth a look at, free to enter all night after the comedy club.

Went for 'Krater Comedy Club' last week and stayed for 'Motor City' afterwards. Had a great time! The 3 comedians were great and the atmosphere was brilliant. Staff were really attentive throughout and took our drinks orders from the table so didn't even have to get up during the breaks. Decided to make a night of it when comedy finished... More

We arrived early as our tickets stated recommend guests come early as tables are first come first served,... More

Visited mid-week for a comedy show. Downstairs offers food with upstairs balcony for those just watching the show. Views of the stage are still good even at the back but seats are unallocated so it's best to arrive early. There is a small but adequate bar at the back. Only downside is a lack of toilet capacity. There were long... More

I would have given 3.5 stars if available. Good comedy and a good venue. Note that the bar downstairs has student deals, a larger selection and accepts card. The upstairs bar only has a small selection and is cash only. There was some disorganisation where the stewards directed us to the back part of the bar then the bartenders came... More
