The comedy side of The Southend Festival 2019 promises to be the biggest and best yet with a programme absolutely brimming with comedic talent, workshops, family events and podcast recordings.


This year, our fringe festival takes place under one roof; The Alex on Alexandra St. which is already the home of Essex’s ONLY weekly comedy club and will feature an abundance of exclusive Edinburgh Fringe Preview shows from some of the biggest names in comedy alongside the abundance of local artists our town has to offer.


The room provides the perfect mix of intimacy and raw fringe excitement and will house over 40 events in 4 weeks, with the vast majority being FREE TO ENTER with a PAY-WHAT-YOU-LIKE policy on exit.
