Sky Comedy is a British pay television channel owned and operated by Sky, a division of Comcast, which launched on 27 January 2020, replacing Universal TV. It is the first dedicated full-time comedy station in Sky's channel portfolio since the closure of The Comedy Channel in 1992.

Sky Comedy launched in Germany, Austria and Switzerland on 1 April 2021.
Sky Comedy currently broadcasts a variety of comedy shows, both on the live TV feed and on demand:
