We didn't book in advance and bought tickets on the door last minute. As is the way with comedy clubs the later you arrive the more likely you are to sit at the front. There was a very civilised queuing system at the bar and everyone was served in turn fairly regardless of how tall they were or how large their chest was. How refreshing!!
A crowd where we didnt feel like the oldest swingers in town which as a couple in our forties we appreciated. The compere ribbed the front row sitters gently but nothing too embarrassing. The compere Jojo Smith was great at getting the party going and introduced the other acts enthusiastically. The three acts were a mixture some better than others but overall a fun night out!

A group of 18 of us visited the comedy club and it was great to be reserved together seated and near (but not too close!) to the front. Not too many people there, easy to get to the bar and toilet and a nice range of acts on. Wouldn't mind a bit of air con though, sweltering is not the word!

I've been to The Stand many times and can't fault the place at all. We have had several meals (including the Dinner Date with Phill Jupitus and Ross Noble) and the food is always first class. It is always beautifully presented and even the snacky food available downstairs is delicious. The staff are excellent too. Always very friendly and efficient. The café upstairs is compact but intimate and the Sunday Roast we had at the weekend was amazing, we may have to give up on home cooking. The comedy venue downstairs is perfect too. No phone signal, which is brilliant to avoid annoying ring tones during a show. Great food, great drinks choices, great staff and if you take in a show, you are guaranteed a great night too.

Small rooms, cute bars, outdoor area, sweet staff, nice loos, multi function, laugh out loud or smirking only, a great venue livening up a recently flagging little street in the toon. Pub across road - very nice ale!
