Comedy Box - Bristol comedy clubs

about us


The Comedy Box - a boutique comedy venue in Bedminster, Bristol specialising in edgy, alternative comedy.

<?xml version="1.0"?>

The Comedy Box hosts the cutting edge of National and international comedy showing the contempory comedian in an intimate setting.


Located a short bus journey away from Bristol city center, the comedy box is located in a trendy, up and coming area close to many restaurants and bars.

Unlike other comedy clubs in Bristol The Comedy Box deliberately don't provide a disco after the show or allow food in the venue because they want the comedy to be the focus of the evening. While the Hen & Chicken pub, where they are based, does provide excellent food in their main bar downstairs and have a 1am license at the weekend, the comedy is completely separate.

The Comedy Box like to call themselves a boutique comedy venue because they are relatively small in comparison with the other two main venues (150 capacity) and specialise in a different class of comedy too. Headliners perform extended sets of 45 minutes to an hour whereas in other venues acts only tend to do 20 minutes each. So the shows are pretty substantial.

The Comedy Box is definitely an alternative comedy venue and probably has more claim to that description than any other venue in the area. So for a fabulous comedy night out, hosted by probably the best comedian in town, the Comedy Box should be the obvious choice.



For edgy, alternative comedy at its best – visit the Comedy Box and tell them that you know they’re one of the best Comedy clubs in Bristol, because you heard it from us.



Telephone the box office for more details, to join the comedy box's mailing list or to find out about their next comedy night on tel: 0117 9223686.

Been there before for a quick drink? You haven’t really been to the Hen and Chicken before unless you’ve sat in the front row on one of the Comedy Nights on the floor above. With both national and International talent, this place tends to get packed out quite quickly. Seating is by table and you will be assigned a table number on a big night. The tickets are fairly expensive but then again, it is one of the better comedy venues in Bristol. There’s even a small bar upstairs serving the audience.

Currently the only independent comedy venue in Bristol meaning it attracts more interesting acts (you'll find more mainstream comics at Colston Hall, The Hippodrome etc) Parking is a bit of a nightmare, which is my only downer. I've had a few good nights here so recommend it.

Despite the comedy box being a little bit out of town itʼs well worth heading to Bedminster, set in a great pub (Hen and Chickens) recently refurbished with great food. Intimate and friendly, seen some amazing comedians there!!!
