Hastings Comedy Festival originated in 2015 from an idea by

Co-directors Chris and Jake, uniting their passion for Live Comedy and the community of Hastings and St Leonards. 


The independent festival showcases a large variety of professional comedians and emerging comics from around the UK and the world. Shows are performed over 7 days in June at various venues throughout Hastings & St Leonards in East Sussex. Save the dates as the festival once again promises to be an explosion of laughter.


''We have a big passion for finding, supporting and promoting new comedy talent,

which is at the core of our ethos of running the festival,

If you're looking for the future bright stars of stand up comedy then Hastings is the

festival showcase you really shouldn't miss out on''
