The Stand Comedy Club, Edinburgh

4.1
#10 of 202 in Nightlife in Edinburgh
Established in 1995, the club runs two purpose built venues in Edinburgh and Glasgow. Both are open seven nights a week with a varied programme of contemporary comedy featuring the best Scottish and international comedians.

Started by a bunch of enthusiasts as a hobby, The Stand has now become a successful commercial company, but one that is true to its roots of developing new comedy in Scotland and giving audiences variety and value.

The programme includes the Red Raw beginners’ nights, improvised comedy, sketch shows, the all female Wicked Wenches, plus Irish and Scottish showcases. Together with solo shows from better known performers and prime stand-up every weekend, there’s always something going on.

Many performers and critics regard the clubs as among the best comedy venues in the world. Just over one hundred thousand people came last year. Maybe it’s time to come and see for yourself.

  • At first it looks quite small however when you enter in it's a decent size. Good range of drinks. The atmosphere is very artsy and nice, amazing painting all over the place. Hosts are super funny. Would definitely advice to pop in there at least once. As well the tickets are fairly cheap.
  • What a great time at the comedy club! Make sure to get there early though because seats go fast! We got there at 7.30 and there were no seats left. However the staff were able to get my girlfriend and I 2 stools to sit on which was great for us. Will be back!
