Small venue with some big names

Came for a Thursday evening show and had a great night. Small venue so struggle to find seats together unless really early but good service and reasonable prices. I'll go again.

It was just side-cracking hilarious. The acts were varied and all comical in their own sense. I laughed a lot.

I went to the 2 GBP open mic night and had a great time. Awesome atmosphere, chairs take up every inch of the floor (get there early if you want a seat), and heaps of laughs. Mixture of styles all held together by a great MC and topped off by a performance by a professional. I even got 50p off... More

Came to the comedy club for a chilled night before heading to town for drinks. I would recommend the experience to anyone! It was a brilliant night! We went to the bank holiday special on 24th may 2015. The compere was brilliant, very funny. I enjoyed all the acts as well, but especially Jeff innocent! He was laugh out loud... More

We didn't really know what to expect from The Stand but booked tickets for the bank holiday Sunday just for something different to do on a friend's birthday trip. When initially walking into the club I was a little surprised by how small it was and it was already busy at 7.30 but the staff were great and found seats... More

We went here on a Mon night for a change, as we were celebrating a birthday. And as usual it was really good, organised, friendly, hassle free and most importantly it was a real chuckle, ribs sore, laugh a sec. The drinks are a little expensive, but the acts were a nice mixture of fresh, newbbies and established and it... More

Got there at 7.30 to take two of the last (small uncomfortable) seats in a hot small room! Compere was very good, credit where credit is due, first act was... More

First visit here, and enjoyed it. Booked tickets over the phone and was told that our group of 6 was fine as they take much larger groups, however when the six of us arrived we met two friends at the door who had booked seperately. The young girl on the door the assumed we were a group of eight (despite... More

I'm delighted to hear that you enjoyed the acts and compere here at our venue. Its very important to us that everyone has such an enjoyable experience hence our group booking policy. The policy is set in place to help ensure that a group doesn't monopolise our intimate venue or interfere in anyway with the show. I can see that... More

Staying in New Town

Neighborhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighborhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
