What is the history?

Laughing Horse Comedy has many years of experience in running Live Comedy Venues. Our original venue opened in 1998 (in Kingston, called "Peppermint Thursdays"), and this was followed by the first "Laughing Horse", at the "Black Horse" in Richmond - a Richmond venue is still running today. Over the years we have promoted comedy and supplied performers for over 400 venues and companies.

From this, Laughing Horse grew to produce shows and run festival venues (starting in Edinburgh in 2004), run comedy courses, run the UK's largest search for new comedy, and move into many other areas of comedy production and are now one of the largest producers of shows at the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringes, with a presence internationally at Festivals in Australia and America.
