Up at The O2 Announces New Comedy Event, Stand Up at The O2
Up at The O2 has announced the launch of an all-new event series ‘Stand Up at The O2’, offering customers the chance to enjoy an exclusive comedy performance on top of the world’s number one music, entertainment and leisure venue.
The popular outdoor attraction has partnered with award-winning comedian Suzi Ruffell to host the events during which she will perform an intimate set of exclusive material, with every guest guaranteed a laugh while surrounded by 360-degree, panoramic views of the capital. Visitors will enjoy an exhilarating climb up to the roof of The O2, followed by Suzi’s comedy set and a climb returning to Base Camp.
As seen on The Jonathan Ross Show, Live at the Apollo and The Last Leg to name a few and praised by The Guardian as a ‘stand-up gem’, Ruffell has established herself as one of the top upcoming comedic talent completing five sell-out runs at Edinburgh Fringe Festival and finishing the second series of her popular podcast ‘Out With Suzi Ruffell.’ With the Fringe Festival unfortunately cancelled this year, Stand Up at The O2 is the perfect alternative for those seeking their comedy fix or simply some light-hearted entertainment.
The events will take place at 7pm and 7.30pm on Saturday 19 and 26 September and Saturday 3 October with tickets priced at £40 per person. The cost includes an outdoor climb led by one of Up at The O2’s expert guides, who are on hand to provide interesting facts and local knowledge, as well as the first-of-its-kind comedy performance on the roof with a mocktail to enjoy during, with the option of a champagne upgrade on arrival.
Dan Hurst, Head of Attractions - Up at The O2 said: “We are really excited about the launch of Stand Up at The O2, and our attraction is the perfect location for guests to feel safe and at ease in the spacious, open air whilst enjoying a hilarious evening of comedy. We’re also thrilled to be collaborating with Suzi on this event and it’s a great chance for comedy fans to come, see and laugh along as she performs her material.”
Suzi Ruffell said: “The O2 is such an iconic venue for comedy so I’m very excited to be playing on the roof at Up at The O2 - I think it’s going to be a lot of fun.”
