Scots are generally funny folk, and they love their homegrown stand-up comedians, from Billy Connolly to Frankie Boyle and Kevin Bridges. The Stand is the premier, locally managed showcase for comedy in the capital. Every night during the week, you can see the local talent, while UK and international acts are usually saved for the weekend. Every Monday is Red Raw, a showcase for beginners—as well as a chance for the experienced—to try out new jokes. Regulars on stage include Jo Caulfield, Jojo Sutherland, and resident duo Stu & Garry (who usually host the Sunday afternoon show, when you can enjoy brunch, too).
