Glasgow Comedy Festival – Saturday 11th March
Bacon and eggs, fish and chips, Glasgow and comedy – some things were just meant to be together. That’s why the Glasgow International Comedy Festival is one of the highlights of the year. There’s lots to choose from and I’m proud to say our show will give anything else a run for their money – even the big TV acts. We use our inside knowledge of the comedy scene to bring you the very best comedians for a fraction of the price you’d see them elsewhere.
Why choose our show?
We’ve got two excellent comedians both have been on TV. Two of the funniest comedy magicians in Scotland And last but certainly not least, one of the best burlesque acts in the World. This lady performed for us back in 2015 and people haven’t stopped talking about her.
So what are you waiting for? if you’re looking for a laugh and something a bit different then come on down to our Glasgow Comedy Festival Special!
Nominated for Best Comedy Venue In Scotland at The Scottish Comedy Awards in 2014 – 2016.
The Admiral Bar is situated less than 5 minutes walk from Central Station. Our lovely private room holds 120 people so you’re a maximum of 7 rows from the stage. This creates a lovely warm atmosphere that’s perfect for comedy. Billy Connolly even did a gig in there!
TICKETS (Including 75p booking fee)
Confessions Of A Conjuror
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to spend your life as a professional magician? After nearly 14 years of touring the world, TV & radio appearances, Chris Dinwoodie’s will spill the beans on the highs and lows of his magical journey

If you’re looking for something fun, different and exciting then this show is for you! Picture the scene, three hilarious comedians sharing stories that will make your sides sore with laughter, two International Burlesque acts who will dazzle you with their stunning costumes and cleverly crafter routines and a mesmerising magicians demonstrating all the illusions you previously thought were only achievable via camera trickery and stooges.

Groups & Food
The Admiral Bar is in two sections, upstairs is The Admiral Bar & Restaurant and downstairs is the function room (it’s officially called The Hold but no one calls it that) Downstairs, where Enterteasement lives, there are two tables that hold 6 x 10 people. These are ideal if you’re looking for birthday parties, hen nights, office parties. However, before you book please read our group etiquette page as we want to make sure everyone has a good night.
If you’d like to have dinner, we highly recommend the two for one pizza deal or the award winning Mac & Cheese at The Admiral’s restaurant (upstairs). They do some of the best pub grub in Glasgow. We advise you book your food at The Admiral no later than 6:15pm. We just use The Admiral’s room so any questions about food should be directed to the Admiral.
Our August Comedy! Magic! Burlesque! show has always been our most exciting show of the year. With entertainers flying in from around the world to perform at The Edinburgh Festival we hand pick the very best acts and bring them to Glasgow for one night only. For the past five years this show has sold out prior to the doors opening, and this year we’re expecting it to sell out faster than ever. Why? Because five years ago when Enterteasement started, we had a bucket list of performers we wanted to book, and at the very top of that list was
TOM STADE! And I’m glad to finally announce – We’ve booked him. The last time Tom was in Glasgow he SOLD OUT The Kings theatre holding 1700 people and now you get to see him up close and personal at The Admiral Bar holding just 120 people.

What Our Audience Say
“I’ve been coming to Enterteasement since the very first show. The guys there do more than put on a show, they put on an experience and it keeps getting better and better.” Stephen Nulty
“I’ve been coming to Enterteasement for two years and it’s the without doubt the best show in Glasgow” Fiona Thompson
“My wife and I have a monthly date night, we’ve tried every place in Glasgow but after trying Enterteasement nothing else compared. So we decided to just come to Enterteasement every month till we got bored of it. That was four years ago…we haven’t missed a show” Jaggy Pickles
Hen Nights / Stag Do
June – August is the prime wedding season so June is the time for a night out with your friends. Now most comedy clubs don’t allow stag and hen parties because they tend to talk, scream, heckle and try and make the show all about them. We’re not saying there’s anything wrong with that behaviour as it’s your last night of freedom. However, what is a fun night for you, ruins everyone else’s night. We are also aware aware that for some people the idea of putting on the L plates and spewing up in the toilet is their ideal of hell. We’ve had some fantastic hen & stag parties at Enterteasement and if you’re like them then please look at booking a table or reserving some seats. However, ask everyone in your group if they want to go and “See a show” before booking. If they’d rather have a mad party then go to the karaoke, or a cocktail making class.
Are your weekends boring? Would you like to try something, new, exciting and fun? Then join us at Enterteasement, Glasgow’s monthly Comedy Magic Burlesque show. Our last two shows have sold out and our October 8th line-up is potentially the strongest line-up ever! So come on down to the best show in town and celebrate your weekend in style.
