The Stand has more than just one thing going for it. The venue is a restaurant and a comedy club. You decide if you want to come in for the food, which is delicious, or for a bit of entertainment. You might get both, anyway.
The setting is not so upscale as to make guests self-conscious and uncomfortable, but it’s not downtrodden either. It actually has quite a cozy feel to it. The place fills up pretty quickly, so you might want to come a bit earlier, especially if you are there for the show. The tables closest to the stage are likely to bear the brunt of the comedians’ joke. If you’re just there to sample the food, or if you don’t feel up to participating in comedy, ask for a table further away from the stage.
The comedians are superb. Comedy Central lovers are likely to see a familiar face. The Stand also put on various shows that you also might want to check out. Whether you live nearby or not, this place is definitely worth a visit.
