Autumn has arrived and what better way to celebrate than to give you some brand new content!

We’re doing things a little bit differently this time as new shows will be dropping sporadically from now until the end of November 😱

We are also launching livestreams from 3 new clubs from around the UK, bringing you a wider range of comedians than ever before!

We’ll be keeping you updated along the way of course but look out for loads of exciting content dropping onto the platform!

It would be great to be able to see what has already been watched or how much has been watched. Just a progress line under the icons would be helpful

Edinburgh has come to a close and we're into tour season. Many of the great shows up at the Fringe will start to tour, alongside shows that haven't been up there.

Here are six shows I'd absolutely recommend catching on tour:

Laura Smyth : Living My Best Life

I love Laura. She's smart, hilarious and says it how it is. She's recently done Live at the Apollo and deserves to be absolutely huge.

Esther Manito : Hell Hath No Fury

I've loved Esther since seeing her first hour at Edinburgh a few years back...and she's on FIRE at the moment. Get in there!

Jordan Gray : Is It A Bird?

If you haven't seen this show yet you must! Jordan won our Biggest Award in Comedy at the fringe last year and went on to do multiple TV performances and a sold out show at the Palladium. The talent is insane.

Josie Long : Re-enchantment

Josie is my favourite. She's political and f*cking funny. Her shows are always perfectly crafted and whilst I haven't seen this one, I will certainly be booking in for the tour.

Rosie Jones : Triple Threat

Rosie's a national treasure - a must-see act who keeps getting pushed over by naughty Nish Kumar. She writes for and performs on loads of TV shows and this is your chance to catch her live on stage!

Jen Brister : The Optimist

Jen is one of the funniest acts on the circuit - her rants are legendary. Definitely catch this tour.

Sketch comedy has been such a significant part of the comedy world for the longest time, from Monty Python’s Flying Circus to Saturday Night Live. And at NextUp, we LOVE IT! 

So here are some of our favourite sketch comedy shows!

Tarot: Cautionary Tales

Come learn life lessons from five people still doing sketch comedy in their thirties, by which they mean it’s a drain on their bank accounts and they don’t talk to their parents about it.

Made up of on-stage members Adam Drake, Ed Easton and Kath Hughes who write it together with off-stage members Ben Rowse and Kiri Pritchard-McLean.

Norris and Parker: Burn The Witch

Debauched sketch comedy for lovers of the strange, the sordid, the musical and the dark. Burn the Witch stands firmly against any idiotic mutters of the ‘excessive’ push of women’s rights. Delightfully sinful, Katie Norris & Sinead Parker utilise catsuits, mullet wigs and songs to weave multiple narratives with strangely relatable characters, primarily set in the miserable, sex-witch overrun Phallus Ridge.

Britney: Friends and Nothing More

Fresh from their universally adored BBC Three pilot, Charly Clive and Ellen Robertson make their long-awaited return to the Fringe with a sketch show about love. But which of these two girls will you fancy more? 'Ferociously funny' ***** ( 'Sweet, smart, refreshingly silly' (Guardian). 'Charming, joyous and offbeat' **** ( 'Bloody brilliant' **** ( A recent rejection from a writing job: 'their friendship is so powerful, and so long-lasting, it might unbalance the room'. As seen on BBC One, BBC Two, BBC Three and Channel 4, in spite of everything.


These are just some of the fantastic sketch shows we have on NextUp! What are some of your favourites?
