Top stand up, without paying top whack. Comedy Loft has been voted the best comedy night across the Midlands, West and Wales by and after countless sell out shows in Bristol and Oxford they’re bringing their winning funny formula to The Civic Trowbridge. 

Our nights feature a quality pro headliner who’s a seasoned nationwide stand up circuit performer. They’re backed up with some of the best rising talent across the south of the country and beyond. Not to mention a fun atmosphere with a few fun and games thrown in for good measure.
