The Comedy Club Ashford

We have successfully been running Comedy Club shows at the prestigious and modern Ashford International Hotel for over 11 years and in that time over 300 top Comedians have graced the impressive stage making the people of Ashford (and beyond!) laugh their way into the weekend.
A lot of the Comics (and who can blame them) have arrived early to take advantage of the wonderful facilities at the Hotel including a lovely pool & spa. Well, which comic wouldn’t like taking a refreshing dip before entertaining a couple of hundred people!

Ashford International is a truly luxurious and sought after venue featuring state-of-the-art facilities and a contemporary, modern feel. This impact and style is carried straight through into the Comedy Club and offers a great atmosphere and environment to enjoy a night out with some of the UK's top stand-up comedians in a superb show. International & tv comedians also appear from time to time.

Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
