Live comedy in Birmingham is an unbeatable night. We’re a favourite stop for comedy’s biggest names and have someof the best comedy clubs around.

The Glee
 is the perfect night out…Great food & drink and a guaranteed laugh. The award winning venue has been the place for comedy in Birmingham since 1994. It is a unique and intimate atmosphere that has seen almost every top comedian perform on its stage. All the greats from Jack Dee to Jo Brand, Russell Howard to Jimmy Carr have appeared over the years.  Every Thursday, Friday and Saturday The Glee is the home of comedy in the Midlands so if you want a great night out that will leave you feeling full of fun and laughter then be part of The Glee.

The Glee doubles as a superb venue for musicians and over the years has had a wide variety of standout artists grace its stages. From Adele to Boy George, Mumford & Sons to Laura Mvula, The Glee has a wonderfully diverse selection of up and coming musicians who you can catch in an intimate venue before they reach the dizzying heights of sell out arena events.  If you are looking for an alternative night out in Birmingham you may well catch one of The Glee’s special events which include cabaret, burlesque and spoken word events. Go to the website for the full listings and to buy tickets for a show.

The Core Theatre Solihull hosts variety, comedy and music. Many comics are Comedy Store regulars and Barnstormers Comedy promoters pride themselves on finding the funniest, smartest and silliest comedians out there.

Keep an eye out at our theatres where the world’s top comedians regularly call in during UK tours. There’s also a network of comedy pubs around the city where tomorrow’s Frank Skinner or Lenny Henry will make their mark.

The Birmingham Comedy Festival has been drawing attention to the city's vibrant (and often unsung) comedy scene since 2001 when the debut festival hit the road running thanks to appearances from Peter Kay and Sean Lock. Since then, the festival has grown into one of the largest independent arts festival in the region.
