I had heard good things about the Stand, so thought it would be a good idea for a Saturday night. There were 4 acts, and the standard was very poor. The first and last act (the so called headliner) were so awful I'm surprised they...More

Thank you for your review. Comedy is subjective so its difficult to please everyone all of the time. We do also recommend people to come to the venue early as it's unreserved seating. Thanks, The Stand

Really friendly staff; plenty of alcohol & a night of stand up comedy - what more could one wish for?! Not a large seating area so arrive early of you want to be seated.

helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned
Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric

Hi, doors open from 7pm and the show starts at 9pm. Our weekend shows are busy so we do recommend people come early as its unreserved seating. Tickets can be bought in advance via our website.
