Established in 1995, the club runs three purpose built venues in Edinburgh Glasgow and Newcastle. They are all 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 Stand Comedy Club Edinburgh 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.
