The Stand Comedy Club, Edinburgh / Glasgow


The Stand Comedy ClubTake the pressure off your one-liners and let someone else provide the laughs with a first date at The Stand Comedy Club. With venues in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Newcastle, and twelve thousand tickets sold a month, it’s one of Scotland’s most popular date destinations.

They’ve come a long way from their beginnings in a pub’s basement too, with many performers and critics naming the clubs amongst the best comedy venues in the world. It’s no surprise either – their shows promise variety and value, with four or more performers on every bill, as well as a beginner spot to support up-and-coming talent.

“You can chat during the intervals, the staff are really pleasant and if you run out of things to say to each other you can talk about the comedy,” says eHarmony’s Jennifer, who met her date Donald at The Stand. Seating is unreserved, so it’s a good idea to get there early to avoid standing, or even worse, sitting in the front row. Save dinner for after your show, you’ll have plenty to talk about as you compare notes. Otherwise grab something to eat as you watch, although what’s on offer varies from venue to venue.

It’s not just Jennifer and Donald that think it’s one of Scotland’s top nights out – it’s got a solid 4.5 stars on TripAdvisor too. Open seven nights a week, there’s a performance on no matter what night you go for.
