What Is NextUp?

NextUp is a streaming service for you to discover the best stand-up comedy. 90% of shows are exclusive. Enjoy live streams from festivals such as The Edinburgh Fringe and direct from comedy clubs, alongside a 100+ library of on-demand comedy specials and short sets. Watch as much as you want, whenever you want, without any adverts – all for an incredibly low price. With constant new releases, there's always a new comedian to discover.

What Can I Watch?

Shows are either 60 minutes with one act - like you’re watching a comedian on tour (or at the Fringe!), or a mixed bill night with 10 minute sets from different acts - like you’re at the best comedy club in town. We tirelessly scout the circuit to serve you the best shows, with constant new and exclusive releases. We also reflect the variety of the comedy scene better than any other platform with observational stand-up alongside character comedians, musical comedy, sketch groups, and alternative acts.

What Are 'Livestreams'?

Only with NextUp can you tune in LIVE to comedy shows happening at the Edinburgh Fringe and across the UK. Livestreams are multi-camera with professional sound - bringing the ‘anything can happen’ magic of live comedy to your sofa. Most livestreams also have a catch-up option so you can watch them for a limited time even if you miss the original broadcast date. Click here to view our upcoming livestreams.

Which Edinburgh Shows Will Be Livestreamed?

The shows we’re livestreaming is regularly updated above. Once exact dates and times are confirmed - they will be updated on our platform here. Our year round livestreams and on-demand shows feature famous comedians and rising stars such as Maisie Adam, Ed Bryne, Josie Long, Miles Jupp, James Acaster, Richard Herring, Sam Simmons, Jen Brister, Shappi Khorsandi, Thaniya Moore, Jess Fostekew, Jordan Brookes, Reginald D Hunter, Mae Martin, Zoe Lyons, Paul Sinha, Mark Watson, Laura Lexx + more.

How Does NextUp Support Comedians?

NextUp split all fees with comedians 50/50, as well as providing them with free writing and rehearsal space. We also spearhead initiatives to increase representation across the live comedy industry. Social impact projects are supported such as 'The Care Home Tour' that saw comedians perform for dementia care home residents. During COVID-19, NextUp raised over £150k for acts who lost their income. By joining NextUp, not only can you discover the best live comedy, you’re supporting it too.
