The Comedy Club Bangkok is Bangkok’s only dedicated English language comedy venue, opening its doors above The Royal Oak pub in September 2014. Stand-up Comedy Creative Director, Chris Wegoda says of the festival, “This festival puts Bangkok on the map in the comedy scene in Asia. We have had some world-class comedian perform at our venue, but nothing can compare to the shear volume of talent that we will be seeing in March. This is a rare opportunity to see some of the best in the business, up close and personal. It is going to be very exciting!”
