Laughter & Food! Brighton Welcomes The Best of This Year’s Edinbrugh Fringe!

With an undeniable sense of doom and gloom hanging in the air after the tortious EU referendum and the (less) extricating exits of England, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland from the 2016 Euros, it’s clear to see that our ‘United’ Kingdom could do with a right good cheer up.

Luckily for comedy lovers around the country, comedy clubs far and wide have tasked themselves with showing the best comedy acts of the up-and-coming Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Here in Brighton, entertainment venue Komedia will be bringing fresh new faces to our seaside town up until early August.


Offering two one-hour shows for only £8 a person, the month-long event is the perfect opportunity to forget about your troubles and drink up a whole night of pure comedy. With established acts like Zoe Lyons and Ellie Taylor also swinging by, the event is truly a fantastic preview for the renowned comedy festival.

For those heading to Komedia for a night of laughter, why not make the most of it with a delicious pre-show meal in the heart of Brighton. Our freshly prepared Italian dishes and award winning wines are responsibly priced and simply die for!

With our authentic Italian menu, we strive to stand and deliver the most popular Italian classics, as well as vegetarian dishes, a plentiful salad bar, and a huge range of award-winning wines. Our menu also offers amazing deals on 2-course and 3-course specials, starting at just £8.95pp.


Remember we’ve also teamed up with Brighton & Hove Bus & Coach Co to offer a generous 10% discount off the bill at Donatello for any bus user. Simply present a ticket, keycard or pass during your visit!

We are located right in the heart of The Lanes and have a seating capacity of over 350, making it ideal for larger groups seeking a great value meal in a relaxing setting.
