Fed up with the government? Fed up with the establishment? Fed up with what gets passed off as modern entertainment?
Then come be lifted by the Sod The Tories. A night of comedy, music, spoken word and general anti-authoritarian shenanigans.

‘Tez Ilyas’ political stand-up is candy floss with a razorblade inside: sweet and familiar at first, then shockingly, painfully sharp. It takes serious talent to pull off’ ★★★★ Telegraph
‘A mischievous show with serious intent – Ilyas has the slickness of U.S. comics, and the gags to back it up’ ★★★★ Guardian
‘Thoughtful but radiantly entertaining’ ★★★★ Times

If you like Whose Line is it Anyway? you’ll LOVE the Suggestibles’ two-hour improv comedy joyride!

The team is boldly theatrical, wildly irreverent and utterly hilarious.
The whole night is based on audience suggestions, so come armed with ideas as their favourite suggestion of the night wins two free tickets to another Suggestibles show at the Stand. The Suggestibles play here the third Thursday of every month (December varies).
Off-the-cuff, off-the-wall and every show a one-off.

'Podfather' Guardian and star of Radio 4’s Relativity, Richard Herring gets to the half century (against all odds) and looks at how his life has changed in the last decade, from irresponsible, single kidult, literally fighting his way through a mid-life crisis, to married father who is mid-way to the telegram from the Queen (though given she will be 140 in 2067 , she might forget to send it). Following on from 'Oh F***, I’m 40!' , this is the second (and let’s face it, almost certainly penultimate) instalment in Herring’s once-a-decade examination of ageing.

Angela Barnes - Fortitude

Monday 21st May 2018

'She’s just a gloriously down-to-earth, straight talking and extremely funny comic' Guardian
Following another sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival the Mock The Week regular and host of BBC R4’s Newsjack Angela Barnes will be taking her ‘beautifully structured show’ Scotsman Fortitude on the road.
On November 9th 2016, two momentous things happened to Angela, which have deeply affected her. Donald Trump won the US election and she turned 40.
Now, Angela is in no rush to join the ranks of middle aged, she’s only just getting started. She didn’t become a comedian until 33, only learnt to swim when she was 37, didn’t fall in love until 38 and passed her driving test at 39. Why the hurry? She is un-pensioned, un-married, un-mortgaged and a fully paid-up member of the Peter Pan generation. People have stopped asking Barnes what she’s going to be when she grows up, and instead want to know when she is going to settle down; she hasn’t been bothered by the ticking of the biological clock, thus far – maybe it’s missing batteries. But what happens when the choices you make aren’t your choice anymore? Does her body have different ideas about the future?
'Storming hour of stand-up' ★★★★ Fest
Before becoming a comedian, Angela worked in health and social care. Since then Angela has become a regular on BBC’s The News Quiz, Newsjack and Mock The Week. She has also appeared on BBC Three’s Russell Howard’s Good News, Russell Kane’s Whistle Stop Tour (BBC Radio 2), and BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show.

Lee Kyle , the regular host of our kids show, brings a family show where anything can happen.
I mean, within reason, he's not going to split an atom or anything.
The show will be different each month, sometimes it'll be a game show, sometimes a quiz, sometimes improv, sometimes a chat show. Sometimes there will be guests, sometimes there won't. Maybe it'll be a musical one month! Sometimes, Lee won't even be there and there'll be someone else doing the show instead - but they'll be awesome too!
No matter what, it's going to be brilliant man. Come along, don't be a square.

Fancy a Sunday Roast? Why nor book a table in our Bistro upstairs for after the show? We also do Kids Sunday Lunches for only £5!
Hot food available in the club or why not treat yourself to some pre-show dining at The Stand Bistro open Mon/Tues from 5pm (show nights only), Wed-Sat from 11am and noon on Sundays.

Limmy’s Vines

Monday 28th May 2018

SORRY, SOLD OUT! If there are any uncollected tickets they will go back on sale on the door 15 mins before the show starts. Please note it may be standing room only by this point.
Limmy is perhaps best known for BBC Scotland’s Limmy’s Show, but when that came to an end, Limmy turned to Vine.
With a lot of time on his hands, he spent most of 2013 on his phone, recording 6 second video after 6 second video. When Vine came to an end, Limmy had created over an hour’s worth of nightmarish nonsense, improvised characters, and the one with the spider crawling out his mouth.
Join Limmy as he introduces a screening of the Vines, followed by an audience Q&A where you can ask him how, what and why.
Presented by Permo Productions & RiotBox Productions
