This year’s Hastings Fringe Comedy Festival has been postponed due to the Coronavirus, but we still we wanted to bring live comedy to people during a time where no live entertainment can take place. So, with a little help from our friends we have curated an online comedy festival for 12th,13th,14th June, the weekend the festival was due to take place
We have partnered up with the Netflix of UK comedy 'NextUp Comedy and Angel Comedy Club who have kindly offered some shows from their amazing and hilarious exclusive content. As well as online content streamed to you by JokePit Live.
Exclusive pre-recorded shows are free to watch on our social media where you can stream on your phones, devices, and TV’s from wherever you are in the world. During each show the audience will be able to tip the comedian and 100% of donations will go to acts and charities. This is an opportunity to bring the industry and fans together by promoting acts and live comedy through a challenging time for live entertainment.
We are currently in the process of finalising our fab programme and we will be excited to share and announce further details next weekend.
How you can support the acts, the festival and its partners
NextUp has some great comedy shows online, and when you watch shows 50% of your subscription goes towards the acts you're watching. What could be better to support comedians and freelance performers?
Angel Comedy is an independent, community-run house of comedy and became the first crowdfunded comedy venue in the world.
"We receive no external funding and have put on free shows every day of the week as well as free comedy workshops. If you like that we exist in the world please consider supporting us with a monthly donation to our patreon or a one-off donation to our paypal."
We will also share how you can support local charities in Hastings
Feel free to share this event and we hope to see you all again soon.
All the best
Hastings Fringe Comedy Festival team
