Let’s be honest, in these strange times a bit of occasional light relief is welcome. So, we’re delighted to see our content partner, NextUp Comedy, continuing to bring the laughs with its new virtual line-up 'NextUp Now'.
Seven days a week you can stream shows from up-and-coming comedians straight to your home, for free. From the ‘Breakfast Surreal’ morning slot, gearing the nation up for their day ahead, to Saturday’s ‘The Show Must Go On’, where comedians perform straight from their living room and fans get the chance to laugh or even heckle along online.
It’s been almost a year since we partnered with NextUp Comedy to bring its content to UK rail for the first time. Avanti West Coast, TransPennine Express and South Western Railway passengers now have access to more than 20 comedy shows through the onboard infotainment platform, including the latest from festival favourites Alexis Dubis, Juliette Burton and Alasdair Beckett King.
Until then, there’s plenty of lockdown LOLs to keep us going. To watch, search for NextUp Comedy on Facebook, YouTube or Twitch.
