News: Comedy Video Company NextUp Announces New Releases

On-Demand comedy video service NextUp is expanding its roster of live shows with a raft of brand new stand-up exclusives. The company filmed a number of full-length performances during the Edinburgh Fringe which will be released later this year. 

They include Christopher Bliss’ Writing Wrongs (pictured top), Joz Norris’ The Incredible Joz Norris Locks Himself Inside His Own Show, Then Escapes, Against All the Odds!! (middle), Andrew Maxwell’s Showtime (bottom), Daniel Cook’s For Money and Ed Aczel’s Infinite.

They are also releasing Hal Cruttenden’s Straight Outta Cruttenden filmed at the Leicester Square Theatre this summer. 

Co-founder Sarah Henley says “The idea for NextUp arose because we as a team found it exceptionally sad that we would come to the Edinburgh Fringe every year and see incredible, lovingly crafted shows, which would maybe tour, but then disappear completely, with only a small handful of comics getting DVD deals. With our production arm they'll be able to resurrect their favourite retired shows, or record their new ones as well as gain new fans from existing recordings.” 

The innovative company launched last November to showcase the work of new and established performers and adds news shows to its catalogue all the time. They recently added shows from Alexis Dubus, Bec Hill, Rachel Parris, Johnny Pelham and Glenn Wool. Their label has already featured critically acclaimed shows from comedians including Richard Herring, Tony Law, Fern Brady, Simon Munnery and Lou Sanders. The company has a sharp eye for new talent. You can currently also watch a show from Jordan Brookes, who was nominated for a lastminute.com Edinburgh Comedy Award at the Edinburgh Fringe this year.  

NextUp recently announced their first major distribution arrangement – an agreement with Virgin Atlantic who will be featuring NextUp originals as part of their airline entertainment. The company has garnered a 5 star average rating in both Android and Apple App stores and has generated an ever-growing loyal membership of comedy fans. 

Monthly subscription costs just £3.50. It comes with a 30-day free trial, so you can sign up without any long-term obligation. Shows are also available on a pay-per-view basis via iTunes and Google Play.
