Venue left a lot to be desired but the comedy was excellent. Toilets were disgusting. Enjoyed the evening due to the standard of the acts.

The acts were very good but it was a shame we were so badly seated on uncomfortable plastic chairs and the stage was so small! It was quite a disgraceful for the comedians which had only a few square metres to present their show.

Been here a few times, the comedy is always great here! The venue could be nicer but is adequate. I would recommend!

Overall a good night here. Only thing I would say is that the toilets put me off - they're shared with the downstairs night club and even at 8pm were clogged and broken. Bar staff seemed confused and slow to serve a very small bar....More
