Joss Jones started her first comedy club in 1987 in the mezzanine bar of the Kentish Town ‘Town & Country Club’ (now called The Forum) and has been running, programming and organising comedy shows and events ever since. Relocating to W6 in 1994, we took on the name Cosmic Comedy and the brand, with its ‘smiley star’ logo, has continued to produce comedy throughout the UK, and in particular the hugely popular ‘Best Of Edinburgh Showcase Show’ at the Fringe every August.

We have worked with nearly every UK comic since the late 80’s, including many who have become household names including Phil Jupitus, Mark Lamarr, Sean Hughes, Jack Dee, Lee Evans, Eddie Izzard, Frank Skinner, Jo Brand, Al Murray etc. etc. And for every comic who found fame and fortune there is an ever growing army of great comics and comedy performers working the live comedy scene today.
Cosmic Comedy Management was formed in 1994. We are an Artist Management agency and a Comedy Booking agency. We currently programme comedy bills for comedy clubs throughout the UK and for a growing number of festivals.
We have had many years experience producing shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival as part of the highly acclaimed EdCom Production Company, and have worked with Perrier and If.Comedy award nominees and winners, including in 2008 overall winner David O’Doherty.
With over 25 years experience across every aspect of the UK comedy industry, we truly are The Live Comedy Experts!
