Sunday night show. Mark Mier was very funny, the others a bit hit and miss but that's comedy. Compare was very good. The place itself is intimate with a small bar, mixture of seats and standing, first come first served. Show lasted 2 hours with 2 intervals. All good, would go again.

Never been to a comedy club before, wasn't sure whether I would find anything at all funny.. But it was fantastic. All 4 acts were hilarious and best of all was the host.. He made the night. Not many seats but we were told this so made sure we arrived on time and got a table which was great. Overall... More

Party of 7 girls, glad we got there early otherwise we wouldn't have got a seat. Place was packed by the time the show started. Compere was hilarious as was all the acts which got better with every one on stage. Plenty of breaks for drinks and leg stretched. Good ok, venue could be done with a bit of TLC.

We arrived at 6:45pm for doors opening at 7pm and were really glad we had; we got great seats and spent the evening feeling really grateful that we hadn't arrived 15 mins later which would have meant standing all night! Great compere and 4 funny and diverse acts, Would definitely return.

Glad you had a great night, and we do always say to people that we can't predict what time you have to arrive to get a seat as it varies how quickly the venue fills up. We always advise people that the closer you arrive to doors opening the more likely you are to get a seat. Ironically, when staff... More

We went on a Monday to see Red Raw talent. A very good evening for £2 each!!!!!!! (actually £2.50 each as booked online, but you can't moan at these prices). It was brilliant.

We visited the comedy club looking forward to a fun relaxing evening. The compère was funny as was the first act but the other two were not. Which made the 2 and half hours standing feel a really long time. In my opinion they should sell tickets for the amount of seats they have and sell standing a lot cheaper.

Haven't laughed so much for a long time, is right on the edge jokes and not that much swearing which I've found in other clubs like this to cover poor comedians. There were 4 on this night and they got better as the evening went on, but gosh the front row really got it full on!! Food is pub grub... More

Went to the Red Raw gig on Monday night. Delighted that we chose this for one of our nights in Edinburgh. Laughed all the way through, all for £2. It was our first time in Edinburgh, hopefully not our last.

Went to their open mic night on Monday, 10 comics in 2 hours hosted by the incredible Jellybean Martinez. Fantastic! It just got better and better as the night went on! There were three sets with 10 minute breaks in between and each left you wanting more. A few acts seemed to be amateurs, but most were incredibly professional in... More

Glad you had a great night, irrespective of who's on Red Raw is great value for money, and as you noted from time to time we do have big name acts turning up unannounced to try out new stuff. Recently we've had the likes of Dylan Moran, Frankie Boyle, Tom Stade, Daniel Sloss, to name but a few do short... More
