Long Description:
"Stand Up Comedy at the Big Ben Pub on Folkungagatan (söder) has almost become an institution in the Stockholm stand up comedy scene. Welcome to a fun night out. We have a mixture of english and swedish comics performing." (visit link)

"BigBenStandUp has gone from running StandUp for tired drunks who slept in the peanuts to become Stockholm's hottest standup scene.

BigBenStandUp want to give you and your friends the chance to discover a relaxed standup club, with good music and fun people both on and above the stage.

BigBenStandUp is a place you can come back to every week and just hang. It never gets boring, it's new comics and new subjects every week, no BigBenStandUp evenings are alike.

BigBenStandUp run every week without interruption for eight years now, week after week, Midsummer, Christmas and New Year. Those who were there when BigBenStandUp started today established comedian Petra Mede, Bjorn Gustafsson, Soran Ismail, Hasse Bronten and many many more.

BigBenStandUp bidding on future fun and you get to be there when Sweden's most established test new ideas. Be there when the new comics career starts, but do not forget where you saw and heard them new first.

It is best to arrive early if you want to get a good spot, but you can always grab a beer at the bar. The club starts at 20, but the restaurant is open already at 19 before if you want to have a bite." (visit link)

Shows are Tuesday, Thursday & Sunday at 20:00.
