Brighton Stand-up Comedy Open Mic Nights

June 2021 Update: this list was created before lockdown and most likely many of these gigs are no longer running – I’ll try to update with new information as soon as it becomes available.


These are some stand-up comedy open mic nights where you might be able to get a spot in Brighton, Hove, and around Sussex. Most of them have booking information in their Facebook pages.

If there’s any incorrect information here, or you know of a night you’d like to add to the page, please leave a comment below.
