    BELLY FULL OF LAUGHS
    Book online , show an ID picture and booking confirmation on your phone to get in . We arrived about 7.30 straight in to our seats , staff are fun and friendly , a really good vibe all around . The evening was packed full of laughter from start to finish . We thought it would have been for older people but there were actually more young people. Everyone was friendly and loving the evening as much as we did . Seats aren’t the comfiest as they are chairs and you have to put your drink under your chair unless you are sat at a front table . Are you brave enough to sit at the front ??? As the comedians include you in their act ha ha . The Stand is another hidden gem in the heart of Newcastle .

    Cosy comedy night
    A great quirky little find. Great food and bar, a mixture of tables and benches huddled around a small stage. Its impossible not to feel part of the act. Lots of laughter and new friends made!

    Always Fun
    Never fail to deliver, especially the weekend shows that give a platform to around 4 acts of varying abilities!! Good atmosphere, drinks and a decent choice of burgers, nachos, dogs and tacos to order before the show starts. They also seem to have tightened up on any heckling as last twice we’ve been there those getting involved don’t tend to reappear after the break!

    Absolutely a must see show
    Fancied a different night out as we were in Newcastle from Bristol for a funeral. From start the finish, the compare was totally hilarious and each act was absolutely brilliant. Memorable night and really good value. Will absolutely be back on the next trip up in the Toon. Thanks guys

    Class Crass
    Back again this time at GFs request to watch the “crass” Stephen Bailey. He was excellent. Venue food beforehand also hit the spot and drinks were good too. Doors opened 90 minutes before the start and you probably needed to arrive in the first 30 minutes to get a decent seat towards the stage (if that’s what you want!). Seen recent negative reviews about staff dealing with audience “participation”. Have seen people not reappear after any break previously but all seemed to survive this time. It’s a fine line to tread for some. Pictures not usually allowed but Stephen said to ignore that rule (and they didn’t throw him out). Don’t think I’ve ever left here regretting it.

‘Unfortunately had a poor experience with the staff. Accusing people of being drunk when we hadn’t had a drink yet and one girl was overheard calling other customers names. Such a shame as the acts and bar staff are great!

I visited your premises on the 3rd of February and encountered several issues that left me feeling disappointed and frustrated.

Firstly, I must address the poor attitude displayed by some of your staff members. I found their demeanor to be dismissive and unprofessional, which made me feel unwelcome and undervalued as a customer. Instead of providing assistance or addressing my concerns, they appeared indifferent and unwilling to help.

Furthermore, I received conflicting information from different staff members regarding the same issue. This inconsistency not only caused confusion but also wasted my time.

Have always had a really good time here however attended in Feb with a group of friends for a birthday - we clearly did not read the terms correctly (you’re not allowed more than 6 to a group) - on arrival we were met with hostility from the staff at the door, it was a genuine mistake we didn’t realise the group rule we’ve been many times in large groups and nothing has been said, they threatened to let none of us in which initially we were confused about as it was just blurted out by staff so got some of our backs up. The manager then came over after things were getting heated and it was decided we could go in but had to sit separately which was totally fine with us.
Some of the group do not drink alcohol and were being accused of being too drunk and which was also strange.
On entering we began to sit separate - we were then told we could all sit together actually and then were shoved off into a corner at the back. We got there early so we could get comfortable seats. Some couldn’t see the stage, some were on stools with no table. And after all the anger from the door staff it was confusing to then because told we can sit together.
We overall had a very poor visit, no one could enjoy the acts sadly because the situation was very awkward and spoiled our friends birthday.
Considering it’s a comedy club I would advise the staff lighten up a bit.

Have been many many times and it’s always fab but the most recent time the staff were so rude and unhelpful. The girl behind the counter made a mistake with our booking and was very reluctant to help rectify it. Luckily there was one staff member who came over and ensured we got sorted as we had proof of payment. I’m not sure if it’s under new management but the manager came over and said ‘if you complain it’ll just come to me and I’ll ignore it’ which is exactly what happened . The girl behind the counter was then overheard calling us names. Most of the reviews for here are good and rightfully so but maybe the staffing needs to be addressed.
