HOUSE RULES

STAG & HEN PARTIES

Owing to the often disruptive nature of these types of groups The Comedy Box regrets that we cannot permit the entry of Stag and Hen parties (for other types of large single sex group, please contact us first if making a booking of this nature). The Comedy Box aims to provide an environment where comics can perform their shows unhindered from drunken heckling and interruptions. We also want to provide an environment where audience members can enjoy the show without these disruptions.

If we discover that a stag or hen party has booked for a show then that party will be refused entry without being refunded. This may appear harsh and inflexible but we have adopted this policy because of previously bad experiences.

Please note that we do welcome large mixed groups but the rules below will still apply:

DRUNK AND DISRUPTIVE CUSTOMERS

Customers who turn up on the door who we believe to be drunk will not be admitted. From experience, customers who are drunk even before the show has started are invariably problematic later on, usually heckling, talking during the show or just being a general nuisance.

If someone in the group you have organised is drunk at the door they will be refused entry without being refunded. This does not mean the whole group is refused entry but if you decide you don't wish to come in because one of your group has been turned away then that does not mean you are collectively entitled to a refund.

DURING THE SHOW:

While we want you to enjoy our shows at The Comedy Box it is important to remember that customers also need to consider other people in the room. So, bearing this in mind, we request that:

  1. Mobile phones are switched to silent during the show as making and receiving calls, including texting, is rude and inconsiderate.
  2. There is no talking during the show as this is disruptive and annoying for those sat around you and for the performer.
  3. There is no heckling or constant interruptions of the comedians. People have paid to listen to the act not to listen to someone else in the audience.
  4. And finally, owing to the proliferation of portable recording devices, it is requested that customers don't make any audio or video recordings of acts or use flash photography during the show.

Customers who break these house rules will be asked politely to refrain. Persistent offenders will be asked to leave without being refunded.

It is unfortunate if anyone is offended by any of our policies stated above but it has been necessary to introduce them based on experiences we have had recently and in the past. We want to provide the best environment to watch and enjoy live stand-up comedy we can possibly have without unnecessary disruptions. We hope you will be able to understand. Thank you for taking the time to read this page.
