NextUp Comedy
'The Netflix of UK stand-up'
Company Overview

NextUp disrupts the stand-up market by filming the most exciting comedy specials and showcasing them to a worldwide audience of fans via their own subscription video-on-demand (S-VoD) platform.

In the past 6 years, the niche S-VoD market has increased over 1000% and is set to gross over £4.8 billion by 2026; NextUp has hit the market at just the right time.

NextUp allows members to watch over 70 exclusive shows for £3.50 per month with a free trial and no contracts.

Whilst allowing comedy fans to discover great comedy wherever they are, NextUp also preserves shows and opens up an additional Spotify-style revenue stream for comedians.

Since launching only last November, NextUp has proven traction having achieved their subscriber targets, gained 5-star average ratings across Android and iOS stores, filmed 20 original shows to add to their growing catalogue, signed with major international distributors and closed a funding round with Velocity Ventures.

NextUp’s latest funding round is open with existing commitments from current and new investors. It closes on December 1st and will be focused on growing the catalogue and marketing to a wider audience.
