About Yellow Comedy

Yellow Comedy's Background

Yellow Comedy was formed by Andrew Carberry in May 2015 to provide a platform for the best up and coming stand up comedians from around the UK and beyond to perform to a Watford audience. 


Since then we have grown and produced over 160 shows in such places as Carpenders Park, Chesham, Croxley Green, Harrow, Islington, Little Chalfont, London Bridge, St. Albans and of course Watford.

Yellow Comedy today

Yellow Comedy runs one comedy night a month at the Kitchen in Croxley Green and two comedy nights a month at Waddington Road Coffee and Kitchen in St. Albans. We also run occasional shows at Watford Museum where the profits go to Local Charities such as the Michael Greem Foundation and Watford Womens Centre.


Our shows are aimed at an over 18s audience and are Free Entry with an 8pm start and a bucket collection at the end of the evening.
