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. 

We hand pick the best comics to get you laughing for a great night out, and all only for the cost of a pint in a couple of weeks time. So come down and see them before they get massive and on the Telly.

Arielle Souma (Headliner)

Arielle Souma, a French-Ivorian comedian, is an unapologetic force in the comedy world. Her authentic voice, commanding stage presence, and razor-sharp delivery make her a comedic powerhouse. Known for her hilariously blunt style, Arielle Souma is not for the faint of heart.

Awards and accolades have marked her journey, including being a nominee for the 2021 Leicester Comedy Award and the 2019 BBC Comedy Awards. In 2019, she also secured a finalist spot in the “Not So New Comedian of the Year” competition.

Arielle’s talent has shone through in various prestigious comedy contests. She was a finalist in the 2017 New Act of the Year Show and the 2016 Frog & Bucket Manchester “World Series.” Additionally, she made her mark as a finalist in the highly competitive “So You Think You’re Funny” competition in 2016.

Arielle has become one of the hottest rising stars in the UK comedy scene. Her impressive career trajectory has seen her perform at some of the most prestigious comedy clubs in the country, as well as garnering rave reviews for her performances at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. And with her star only continuing to rise, there’s no doubt that Arielle Souma is a comedian to watch in the years to come.

Ben Harrington (Opener)

Ben is an established performer on the comedy circuit playing to audiences throughout England and Wales. Over the last few years, he has built an impressive resume as a comedian and entertainer.

He has a relatable demeanour which sometimes boils over into passionate frustrations about his challenges with the world creating energy and laughter.

In 2023 he’s took his third solo show to Edinburgh – “44 and Flippin Furious”, a wry and self-deprecating take on the challenges of being relevant as a middle-aged dad and his place in the world.

I genuinely enjoyed what you did last night. As you know I had little doubt inside me but I thought you had great presence and confidence and carried your material really well.” – Hungerford Comedy Club

Our headliner is supported by 3 other comedians.
