Stand Up Horror

About Stand Up Horror

Actor, writer and tour guide Alex Staniforth invents a horror story every night. You decide what the characters do, find and sometimes - yes sometimes - even love. Every night is different and every night is horrifically hilarious.

Now a monthly event in Scotlands MOST HAUNTED PUB, come along and experience the unique, and hilarious Stand up Horror.

"Alex Staniforth has sold out his shows at Edinburgh Horror Festival in both 2016 and 2017. Fielding suggestions from the audience, the actor, story-teller ... will spin a tale of terror and laughter from scratch. Expect “gory-telling” at its finest in the perfect location." - The Wee review

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Stand Up Horror are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
