The Comedy Cabaret


Glasgow’s Spiritual Home of Stand-up!

The Comedy Cabaret operate weekly stand-up comedy shows across the UK. In Glasgow, we are partnered with the legendary Blackfriars of Bell Street, in Glasgow’s Merchant City. Blackfriars basement is one of Scotland’s original comedy venues. Plenty of TV comedians have graced the stage, including the OG himself – Sir Billy Connolly. The Comedy Cabaret team were the first people to give Lee Nelson & Gary Little a gig, the first to give paid work to Alan Carr & Kevin Bridges and the first to headline John Bishop. We know funny! Together we operate arguably the best comedy room in the UK, come along and experience it for yourself!
