From those people who live within the city to those visiting for an evening or weekend, those looking for laughs in Chester won’t be disappointed. While there are many venues serving up stand-up around the city, Alexander’s Live offers outstanding variety.
Serving drinks and food alongside its shows, the venue is famous for presenting music, theatre and comedy. Since it opened in 1991, a host of famous faces have graced its stage, including all-star comics like Jack Dee and Bill Bailey. However, the Chester night spot is also known for giving up-and-coming acts a shot. It even hosted music icon Ed Sheeran in the early days of his career.
Every Friday night, Alexander’s Live can be counted on for its world-class comedy night. It boasts Chester’s only weekly comedy event and an endless stream of different talent week after week. Each comedy show at the venue features four hand-picked comedians and is designed to provide the funniest night for the most affordable price possible.
The doors open to the Friday event at 7:00 pm, and the first comedian graces the stage at 8:00 pm, so there is plenty of time to enjoy a drink at the well-stocked bar. It serves cocktails, spirits, wine, lagers, ales, craft beers, and soft drinks for designated drivers. Food-wise, there is plenty of choice, ranging from steak and burgers to plant-based plates or tasty snacks to share.
Alexander’s Live can be found right in the heart of Chester in Rufus Court and its Friday Comedy Nights are held throughout the year.
