From our humble beginnings as the live comedy night ComComedy (Guardian recommended, not to brag), we’ve been supporting and promoting the best acts and performers on the circuit for the better part of a decade.
Comedy for good
We believe comedy can do so much good. Whether that’s changing someone’s worldview or just giving someone a reason to laugh, the power comedy has to change the world is unimaginable.
That’s why we utilise our marketing expertise, industry experience and wealth of trusted contacts and partners to reach as many people as possible with this message.
Whilst not a requirement for digital video distributors in the UK, NextUp is proud that all of our shows carry closed captions, making them available to those with hearing impairments and expanding their accessibility. The best comedy speaks to you personally and we believe in trying to spread the power and joy of comedy as far as we possibly can.
Panning for comedy gold
Another reason we started NextUp is that, having spent many years filming shows, interviewing comedians and attending gigs, we noticed that despite the comedy industry being so broad, with such a wide variety of wonderful comedy talent to suit all tastes, what you see on TV isn’t an accurate reflection of that wonderful diversity.
The stand-up comedy you’ll see on TV and mainstream media just doesn’t accurately represent the true wealth of creativity, experience, perspective and talent that is on the circuit today.
We provide an alternative for these acts, filming their shows and giving them a platform to reach as many new fans as possible, without the red tape of traditional media.
This allows us to be on the cutting edge of the industry, working with some of the most exciting acts you’ll likely never see on the beeb.
But we can only do so much, and there’s sure to be a huge pool of talented comedians we simply haven’t seen yet. So if you know any acts that we should be filming, get in touch via the form below and let us know – you might see them on NextUp very soon.
