about us

Bring Your Own Baby Comedy is the UK’s premier baby friendly comedy club! We provide soft flooring, toys, buggy parking and baby changing at all of our venues so that your baby is happy and you can relax and be entertained by the funniest comedy stars in the UK!

our story

Bring Your Own Baby comedy was conceived over a glass of wine as friends and comedians, Carly Smallman and Alyssa Kyria, were discussing the worlds of comedy and motherhood. 

They saw a need for a place where new parents could go out and have a laugh, without feeling nervous or judged if their baby needed to be fed, changed, or have a big old scream. Somewhere with hilarious comedy for the grown-ups, great facilities for the little ones and, most importantly, a judgement free zone where parents could whip out a boob or a bum (hopefully the baby’s!). 

So, Bring Your Own Baby Comedy was born — an afternoon of amazing comedy, where men, women and babies can relax and have a good laugh at the best comedians on the UK comedy circuit, without paying for childcare!
