Stand Up Guernsey is back!... SERIOUSLY!

On 14th March 2020, Stand Up Guernsey compere Geoff Whiting left the stage with the immortal words: “This might be the last comedy show you’ll see for a very long time!” He wasn’t wrong. In less than a week, COVID restrictions were in place, followed shortly by the first lockdown.

We’ve been bringing top-flight comedy to Guernsey since 2007. Since life returned to normality, other comedy promotors have come and gone, but we’ve been waiting for the right time - and that time is now!

We’re excited to announce that Stand Up Guernsey will return this November to a new venue - Cobo Comedy Club at Cobo Bay Hotel. And the great news is that regular compere Geoff Whiting is back and raring to go!




Each night is the same line-up and starts prompt at 8pm. The show usually finishes around 11.00
