Jericho comedy is a comedy night that runs twice a month on Saturdays downstairs at the Jericho cafe. It's an intimate and charming setting to watch some of the UKs finest up and coming comedian's. With a host of regular audience members and compered by locals Harry and Alex you'll find a laugh at the finest underground comedy in Oxford. We pride ourselves on being one of the more alternative nights in Oxford, with some of the UKs most exciting comics tickets can always be found here
Our line ups. We never publish our line ups, because chances are you've not heard of all of our acts, not yet. But 3 acts we've had on in the last year were in the BBC new comedy act final 2017, and 2 were nominated for best show at the Edinburgh Fringe 2017. Not only that but we've had the likes of Robin Ince, Josie Long, and Simon Evans rock up to do gigs in the last few months. We might not release our line ups, but our acts have gone on to become household names... Jericho comedy was originally hosted at the Jericho Tavern in the early 2000s by Silky, run by Kill for a seat comedy clubs comedians who have gigged at Jericho comedy include:
Chris Addison, John Bishop, Alan Carr, Josie Long, Andrew Maxwell, Tony Law, Tom Stade, Nick Doody, Lucy Porter, Brendan Burns, Jim Jeffries, Milton Jones, Gary Delaney, John Oliver, Rob Rouse, Hal Cruttenden, Russell Howard and Jimmy Carr.
All profits from Jericho comedy go to mental health charity mind. It's a cause important to many comedian's, and hence we're lucky to get some great acts coming along to support the cause. We aren't trying to swindle you of your money, but providing you with a great night of laughs for a great cause. The only people who profit are you and Mind!

"Great fun to sort it all out with, they were helpful, organised and grateful all the way through. There's some real talent on show that needs to be seen here; and as a Rep it was so simple to sort out!”
Chris Putman, St.Hugh’s
"An absolute delight to work with: professional, proactive, and always funny. They are creating a fantastic network of young comedians around Oxford"
Rich O'Grady, Gin & Phonics
"Having arranged a new comedy event for our Charity, we really wanted something typically Oxford. Harry and Alex were amazing, helping to organise a fantastic evening of entertainment. We wouldn't hesitate working with them again after a night that had everyone in tears of laughter.”
Rob Jordan, Chair, Oxford Pride
"It was wonderful working with them! They had everyone in splits during the event, and were massively helpful in understanding the pressures of organsing a Ball while we were setting up. I'm sure they're going to do a fantastic job performing, wherever they are invited.”
Arushi Garg, Entz Organiser, Magdalen Ball 2015
