We are proud to offer York’s widest range of comedy, from local up and coming acts, to professional comedians who’ve been on the telly and that. We have a diverse programme of stand up nights, plays and Fringe associated performers.

 

Some of our regular nights include:

 

Laugh Out Loud, which seeks to bring the brightest stars in up and coming comedy, seeking to feature guests from TV panel shows such as QI and Mock The Week. Check out the listings or facebook page ahead of each gig to find out who’s been announced.

 

Burning Duck Comedy Club, which has gone from strength to strength since its inception here in York. With a tendency towards edgy acts, expect anything from experimental, to sketches and even the odd song here and there.

Here at the Basement, we take our comedy very seriously....
