About the Organisers: NextUp
At NextUp, our mission is to amplify the power of comedy whilst supporting comedians and the wider comedy community in as many ways as possible.

We primarily do this through our subscription-video-on-demand platform dubbed ‘The Netflix of UK stand-up’ by Engadget but since COVID-19, we’ve also run the following initiatives:

  • A Just Giving fundraising campaign to financially support comedians who need it most. At the time of writing it’s raised over £120,000.
  • A live-streaming service called NextUp Now that gives comedians a virtual live-streaming stage to perform and earn revenue from.
  • Doubling our commission payouts to any venue or comedian who promotes our video subscription service, helping them earn easy additional revenue.
  • Ticketed live gigs via Zoom (like this one) that present comedians a ‘closed-door’ comedy club-like scenario to practice their material and earn revenue from.

It’s going to be a while before live comedy returns to its normal state but we’re determined in the meantime to create a working model that benefits everyone and we’d like to thank you for your supporting this festival, and live comedy.
