Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have been going to Coastal Comedy for a very long time now and it is always a great night out. We have introduced many friends to it as well and noone has had a bad word to say about it. Adrienne does a great job hosting it and gets some fantastic acts involved. If you get a chance please go along for a great night.

Great experience. Booking was easy, timings were great with a break between each set to get a drink from the bar.
Wonderful acts, haven't laughed like that in ages.
Thanks to Adrienne for holding the evening together so well

We always have such a great time at Coastal Comedy! It’s the first time we’ve been since they moved to Canvas, and we enjoyed it as much as we did Pre-covid. Adrienne is a brilliant host and all three acts made us laugh. It’s great value, around £12 for an early bird ticket.

Adrienne is hilarious and ensures that coastal comedy is always a great night out. The lighthouse studio is a small intimate venue perfectly suited to a comedy show and facilitate audience participation. If you want a good laugh book your tickets now!

Thanks for the Colossal Poole Lighthouse comedy evening 25/9/21. Sorry the other comedian couldn't get there (couldn't get fuel) but for us an unexpected treat to see Ian D Montford as well as Ivan Brackenbury! The compere and first act were good too but reason for visiting was to see Tom Binns live as we loved Hospital People on the TV and he certainly was even better with an audience and the interaction. I laughed so much my sides are still hurting wonderful evening!

Enjoyed a great night out at Coastal Comedy @The Lighthouse in Poole on Saturday night. The 3 acts were really funny, haven't laughed so much in ages, and the compere Adrienne Coles is a laugh a minute and did a great job warming the audience up. Can't wait to go back again soon. Highly recommend.
