Frequently Asked Questions.

Got a question about our comedy club? We've got the answers! Check out our FAQ page for everything you need to know. 

If you can't find your answer here, please use our contact us page and a member of the team will get back to you. 

  •  We have use of several venues around Torquay. Please check the individual event listing to ensure that you are aware of the shows location when booking tickets. 

  •  Our regular club night shows at The Imperial Hotel offer free parking for our audience members. 

  •  Our shows begin at 8pm, however doors open at 7pm to allow you time to find your seats, get a drink and get ready to laugh! Late comers may not be permitted entry. 

  •  As it is live comedy and if the audience and comedian are really enjoying themselves, we cannot guarantee a finish time however we usually aim for a finish between 10:30pm – 11pm. 

  •  We operate theatre style seating plans. Seats with tables can be purchased at an additional fee. 

  • Currently all tickets and seats are sold on a first come, first served basis. We removed our seating plan to speed up the check in process. 

  •  YES! We carefully curate our shows by booking only the very best acts from TV and the UK comedy circuit. No newbies here. 

    Previous bookings have included. Sean Lock, Jason Manford, Ivo Graham, Larry Dean, Laura Lexx, Stuart Goldsmith, Angela Barnes etc. 

    If you have ever watched Live at the Apollo, 8 out of 10 Cats, Taskmaster, Mock the Week, Russell Howards Good News or any other top comedy TV show you will know the acts we have perform for us. 

  • Heckling is a part of live comedy, but a part of it that every comedy club tries to avoid as it can quickly become tiresome for other members of the audience if it is overdone. If an audience member persistently interrupts a performer or if the heckling is vicious, racist, or in any other way offensive in our opinion we will take action to put a stop to it. In most cases this will firstly be a polite request for the offender to stop their heckling followed by the offender being ejected from the premises. 

  • We expect members of the audience to respect the performers, other members of the audience, the staff and the venue. This means that we will do our utmost to ensure our customers can enjoy the show without having to put up with constant interruptions to the show or people talking while the performers are on stage. 

    We operate a 3-strike policy, if anyone is found to be causing a nuisance to the show or anybody around them our security guards will politely address this with them, if they continue to act disruptively, they will be asked to leave the premises. 

  • Persistent interruptions, disruptions or talking whilst the show is in progress will result in either a polite request asking you to quieten and settle down or you will be asked to leave the venue immediately, the severity of the disruption will determine the actions taken and the decisions of the Torquay Comedy Club staff are final. We reserve the right to ask you to leave the venue with reasonable cause at any time without any penalty to the Torquay Comedy Club, including refunds. 

  • We certainly do. Please purchase tickets as normal and email us your proof of carers status and we will have your ticket refunded. 

  • Yes. All our shows are wheelchair accessible.  Wheelchair spaces are not listed on our seating plan so please contact us before purchasing tickets to enable us to discuss with you your seating options available. 

  • Yes! Please contact us to discuss your requirements where we can then offer a group discount code before you book. 

  • Absolutely, we work closely with comedians and their agents to be able to book the best acts available for a wide range of events. Get in touch with us to discuss this further. 

  • If an event on our website is displayed as 'Sold Out' (as they often do!) then there will not be any tickets available on the door. 

    However please contact us and we can add you to the waiting list. There’s no guarantee that tickets will become available however if we do get availability our waiting list is the only way to get access to them.

    Alternatively, if you wish to try your hand and stand-up comedy our comedy course is the perfect entry point to give it a go. 

  • We have supported for many years the local charitable organisation, Feed A Child Torbay (F.A.C.T), we encourage everyone to learn more about their cause and the great work they do. 

    We do also provide free tickets, donations etc to other good causes and events however as we do receive a lot of requests, we regret that it is not possible to do so for every enquiry.
