Stand Up Comedy with Eddy Brimson, Chris Washington, Steve Shanyaski & Barry Dodds
Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser
Established in 2001 and featuring four stand up comedians, the HiFi’s Comedy Club is Leeds’ finest independent Stand-Up Comedy event and has been the launch pad for so many Stand-Up comedians over the years with the likes of Alan Carr, Paul Sinha, John Bishop, Katherine Ryan, Reginald D Hunter, Tom Stade, Jason Manford, Jon Richardson, Sarah Millican, Daliso Chaponda, Russell Howard & Chris Ramsey all calling the venue home during the early days of their careers.
Obviously we’re super happy to be back, but until step 4 of the government’s road map back to normality is implemented on 21 June, we will be operating with a limited capacity due to social distancing measures needing to be in place. Tickets for all dates, up to and including Saturday 19 June, will be sold on a table basis rather than individual ones and each ticketed table will need to adhere to the rule of 6 and be made up of people of 2 households or less. Because of both the reduced capacity and the fact we don’t want anyone to miss out on their first fix of Stand-Up Comedy after such a long break, we will, for the first month of opening, be running a Comedy show on a Friday too. So from Friday 21 May 2021 until Saturday 19 June 2021, Comedy will take place both on a Friday and a Saturday evening. Yay!
Doors: 6.30pm until 10:30pm with the first comedian onstage approximately 7.45pm. Due to social distancing measures, all ticket holders will need to arrive at the venue no later than 7.15pm to facilitate us getting you seated and served in good time (see below) before the first act takes to the stage. Any arrivals after this time may unfortunately have to wait until the next available interval to be allowed into the venue.
Number of tables available and pricing:
2 x tables accommodating 3 people at £45 per table
2 x tables accommodating 4 people at £60 per table
7 x tables accommodating 5 people at £75 per table
2 x tables accommodating 6 people at £90 per table
1 x table accommodating 6 people at £80 per table (restricted view in places)

This charming Geordie motor-mouth has audiences in the palm of his hand, even when discussing the most near the knuckle subjects. With material ranging from the supernatural to euthanasia, everything is delivered with a cheeky smile that wins over even the most stony faced of the audience. A finalist in various high profile competitions such as Jimmy Carr’s Comedy Idol and Jongleurs Last Laugh Comedy Search, his twinkly eyed, playful demeanour disarms judging panels, industry experts and audiences alike, allowing him flirt coquettishly with topics that are traditionally a little more unusual. 'Hugely enjoyable... a ton of great stories... one to watch' (The Guardian) 'Razor sharp humour' (Metro) '... the appealing and perceptive Barry Dodds... captivates his audiences with his energy, spirit and tantalizing wit. His mix of surprisingly uncanny and irrepressibly cheeky material leaves them wanting for more' (Funhouse Comedy).
