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.

Alex Milner (Headliner)

A rising voice on the circuit, Alex brings his natural warmth and delightful conversational style to stages across the country.

Having started his comedy journey in Hong Kong, Alex has headlined clubs across the Asia, Europe and the UK.

“Alex is a tremendous joke writer and his performance skills are evenly matched. His warm and subversive takes on modern society are hilarious and beautifully judged. Audiences love him and his quickest of wits means his crowd work makes every set a wonderful live event.” (Comedy ladder)

“A sharp mind with an excellent ability to read a room and respond hilariously” – (Jericho Comedy)

Darren Hoskins (Opener)

Darren Hoskins, a middle-aged gay farm worker and ex-magician’s assistant, mixes material about growing up in the Forest of Dean in the 1980’s with props from his time in comedy magic.

All while throwing in stories about how the passing of time leaves its mark in many ways and his constant and one-sided competition with J K Rowling with props and gags stolen from the magic circle.

A veteran of the comedy festival circuit, Darren has toured theatres, above, below and behind public houses with his physical and foolish storytelling, improv and audience interaction.

Darren is a playful farmer from the Forest of Dean, who will draw you into his captivating stories about growing up, dating, and the ups and downs of rural life.

Our headliner is supported by 3 other comedians.
