I have always loved the Stand and you are guaranteed a good laugh! Toilets are basic and so are the seats - but you are not there for the luxury. Having to get there early to secure a seat is a pain through and then you have 2 hours to wait until the comedy starts... For that reason (and the... More

Hi there! Thanks for the lovely review, we're really glad you enjoyed the show! Just so you know for future reference, we would always provide a seat for a heavily pregnant woman, or anyone with a condition that prevents them from standing for long periods of time. If you let us know when booking that you are unable to stand,... More

Had a great Saturday night here. Not a huge club but was busy. Acts were great. Go early, 7pm for a seat or stand for hours.

Went to the Sunday night, compered by Suzi, 4 comedians, Mark Maier top of the bill. A great night, will definitely go back next time we are in Edinburgh. Hopefully be there early enough not to be in the front row next time though.

I bought four tickets on line for Friday night (21st) We arrived dead on 7:30pm when the doors are advertised as open with a view to the four of us having an evening out with something to eat, a few drinks and then some comedy. But no. Every table had been taken and several tables were already being served hot... More

Hi there, Firstly let us say that we're gutted that the evening didn't live up to your expectations and that you felt let down by the whole experience, but that being said we are puzzled by what you say. The Stand state clearly both during the online booking process, and in the email confirmation, that it's an unreserved seating venue,... More

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
