Venue left a lot to be desired but the comedy was excellent. Toilets were disgusting. Enjoyed the evening due to the standard of the acts.

The acts were very good but it was a shame we were so badly seated on uncomfortable plastic chairs and the stage was so small! It was quite a disgraceful for the comedians which had only a few square metres to present their show.

Been here a few times, the comedy is always great here! The venue could be nicer but is adequate. I would recommend!

Once the comedy started you forgot about the sticky floors, uncomfortable cramped seats and plastic glasses however the venue definitely doesn't make you want to return. It's in a lively area on Cowley Road but obviously not much money is spent making the inside feel...More

We have always loved going to the Glee Club in Oxford however the new venue in cowley is terrible. We felt like we were sat in school assembly on plastic chairs all squashed in tiny rows. No tables to put your drinks on, plastic glasses...More

Overall a good night here. Only thing I would say is that the toilets put me off - they're shared with the downstairs night club and even at 8pm were clogged and broken. Bar staff seemed confused and slow to serve a very small bar....More
