In October 2018 the People’s Republic of Stokes Croft teamed up with stand up comedians Jon Matthews and Henry Palmer to present a revolutionary new night.

The People’s Comedy is UK’s only regular sociopolitical comedy night, where Bristol’s satirists deconstruct the power paradigm to comedic effect.

Putting our money where their mouths are, it’s also the only regular night where ALL the acts get paid.

A fantastic night of political, social and cultural comedy featuring some of the most exciting grassroots comedians of Bristol and beyond.

Events can be found here.

Tickets available from Headfirst Bristol.

Come and join the revolution.

Here are some moments from our opening night Friday 5th October.

Support our work

We run small art and community projects in Stokes Croft and around Bristol, often for free. We collaborate with other art and community groups, who benefit from our facilities and resources. We're entirely self funded, and sometimes that's hard.

If you like what we do, please consider donating. PRSC is at the forefront of defending public spaces, cultural freedoms, and an alternative voice from the city.

With your help, we can develop our workspaces, activities, projects and campaigns.

Yes, I support an alternative voice for the city.
