The Forge Comedy Club wins top prize in Industry Awards!


A Brighton comedy club has won the prestigious Best Pro Comedy Club Award for the South of England at the comedy industry’s version of the Oscars, the Chortle Awards. What makes it even more amazing is that The Forge Comedy Club has only just celebrated it’s first birthday!


The brainchild of local comedy legend, Stephen Grant, and his promotion company, Funny That, Forge Comedy Club is based at Ironworks Studios, near Brighton train station. Using the superb, state of the art performance space they have created a comedy club that is truly next generation.


The acts certainly agree, and Forge regularly attracts top names, such as Romesh RanganathanJohn BishopTom DavisSara PascoeRussell KaneZoe Lyons and Joel Dommett.

The venue has also made a splash with customers, surging to be the most highly rated comedy club in Brighton on Trip Advisor, and with a host of gushing reviews across social media.


In fact, at the moment, getting a ticket can be the biggest challenge with every show since September being a complete sell out, as people rush to check out the hottest comedy show in town. Two new material nights, featuring Russell Howard, went on sale last week and both sold out in a matter of minutes. 

“We hate it when people are disappointed, but I guess it’s a good problem to have” said a representative for the company “We recommend everyone join our mailing list and follow our socials to be first to hear of special guests popping in and new tour announcements.”


This is the second award that Grant and co have picked up in recent months, with Funny That also being named Best Independent Promoter 2022 at the industry voted Comic’s Comic Awards.
