“Very funny,good value for money.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

Went with my brother. Given a front row table! Booked the special with Thai meal. Veg curry was ok for the price. Comedians very funny and we didn't get picked on too much. Would go again.

“Saying LOL after everything does not make it OK!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

I thought we'd try a comedy club for a change, and as the bill for Saturday evening featured Paul Chowdhry, who I do like, the Glee club in Nottingham won out over any other choice. Tickets were a 'reasonable' £14.00-ish (in advance) for 3 comedians and a warm guy, who each did about 15 minutes, and for this reason alone I have awarded the place an 'average' rating. The comedians were very good, but the venue is the problem. It's not that it's bad, there's just something very controlling and almost Kafkaesque about it - A double vodka and coke was £6.50! (we called next door at Wetherspoons before we went in, had 3 bottles of Desperados and a pint of coke, and it only came to £7.00!!!!). Food was available at your table, & we sampled a bowl of chips (frozen fries) and dips (a small pot of watery ketchup + another of something else of which I have no clue), and a bread and olive platter (not bad) - This came to £10.00 (ish). Food was... OK. It was my other half who pointed out that the place was somewhat dictatorial - ladies toilets for instance only had 1 light bulb, and on the back of all the doors it stated that you were only allowed to use 2 sheets of toilet roll. We tried moving seat as she suffers from anxiety (we had been put in the middle of the room, and were surrounded + on the 2nd row, which means you are bound to picked on!!! - we rarely go to the pictures now for the same reason - not the abuse you understand... the crowd of people, and the feeling you can't get out.... her not me, I'm 'normal'!!). We had a hell of a job (involving 2 staff members) to convince them to 'allow us' to move, + we were then behind a hen party, composed mainly of women whose opinion of themselves was by far the most important thing. Doubtless they lost their 'behavior bond', which such groups have to pay, though the last comedian 'really' put them in their place (which was VERY funny). All in all, a good laugh thanks to the guys on stage, but the level of control exerted by the management (particularly when you consider what you're paying them) does not make for a nice relaxing evening, and hence we won't be going back.

“Fabulous night!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Booked in at the Glee Comedy Club for a birthday celebration. Pre-ordered the chicken and ribs platter which was delicious and well worth the money. Drinks were also fairly priced and feeling greedy got some popcorn later in the night. The host was a hoot and the acts were good too. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Glee Club is set in a lovely location right on the river, would definitely visit again.

Hello Victoria.

Thank you for taking the time to give us such great feedback. We aim to give all our customers a combination of key guarantees when they visit us at the weekend for our comedy club. We aim to provide great food, a 'grown up' venue (that is kept clean, provides good service and welcoming staff), good value all round and great comedy. So it makes us really happy to hear we got it right.

Tell all your friends and we hope we'll see you all soon!

“Gavin Webster and co.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Friday night a blizzard outside and I'm in the Glee Club with a few friends for a bit of comedy. The glee club currently offer curry and comedy for just under a tenner which I thought was really good value for money. One negative being we had to send the first lot back as it was stone cold however no problem the matter was resolved with no fuss. The Glee Club had four comics on with Gavin Webster as compare, I've seen this guy before and first time round just didn't get him at all. The secret is just to sit back and go with the flow he's just totally mental. The headline act for this particular evening was Paul Tonkinson all I can say is bloody brilliant proper can't breath comedy had the audience in the palm of his hand with witty banter that wasn't crude but extremely funny. As for the other two acts that night meh! Hey but for ten quid you can't go wrong.

Hello Tim,

We think the Thai Meal and Comedy ticket is great value, so really glad you grabbed some of the limited tickets we have each week for that. And we're even more pleased to hear we got straight onto the problem.

But it makes our little hearts jump when someone starts talking about the comedy! The two you mention are great comics, both heavyweights on the circuit. Let us know if you'd like some more recommendations - just email duncan@glee.co.uk

And wasn't the snow crazy! Start of the show, nothing and by the end of the show it was like the Arctic. Hope you got home without too much trouble.

Hope we'll see you again really soon.
Everyone at Glee Club Nottingham.
