“Unbelievable value for just £2 on the "red raw" night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Myself and my Girlfriend went on Monday night just to pass a few hours and it was absolutely class!
From start to finish the host was 10/10 hilarious, out of the 8 acts, 4 were really funny and 2 were side splittingly funny. The other 2 comics were first timers, it'll take a bit if time for them to get used to the whole set up of it.
The bar staff were very helpful and friendly. We didn't book, the show started at 8pm and we drifted in around half 7ish and the place was nearly full, I would recommend in getting there early and getting a seat.
I would highly recommend this to anybody who likes the odd joke or giggle or who wants to see a lighter side to Edinburgh. A definite 10/10 experience for both myself and Girlfriend.

“Very funny”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013 via mobile

We had looked up comedy clubs in Edinburgh in anticipation of a weekend break there and went along to the Stand for the Sunday lunchtime show. Stu and Gary's improv was very funny and clever. We both enjoyed it. We drank beer and ate nachos (prices reasonable). Free show. Highly recommended for an enjoyable couple of hours.

“Laugh A Minute”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

When we went there were 4 acts on and 1 totally flopped, the others made up for it though and the compere was amazing. Food was also very good, would recommend this place if you want a good laugh.

“You must go here if you are in Edinburgh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013 via mobile

Went on Fri 27 sept arriving about 15 mins before show started so had to stand. Didn't bother us as had been sitting all evening! Its the best night out have had in years and such good value. 5 top class comedians. Our faces were sore from laughing. Wish lived nearby as would love to go back. The staff were lovely and cery helpful at the bar. Got to chat to the three male comedians at the end of the night too. Hopefully see them on Michael mcintyres roadshow soon as hugely talented.
