House of Stand Up is an independent comedy club with offices in Central London and Essex. We aim to give you an excellent evening of entertainment featuring some of the best stand up comedians in the country today at an ever increasing number of venues.
The man behind the House of Stand Up is Trevor Jones, who started out at the tender age of sixteen, having just left school and trying to leave home. With his very youthful looks he couldn’t find anywhere that would take him seriously so he started his own accommodation bureau.
He quickly built up a clientele of performing artists who were looking for short term lets near the theatres in the West End.
“That was how I met Leonard Rossiter (left) before Reggie Perrin and Rising Damp. We were having a drink together one day and he suggested I should go into PR – so I sold the bureau and launched my PR business for performing artists.”
After twelve years running the PR business he decided to try something different and launched ‘Trevor Jones Antiques’ specialising in antique furniture.
“All my life I’ve believed that, if you wake up and don’t enjoy what you have to do all day, it’s time to do something different!”
A chance meeting with an old friend who ran a comedy club resulted in the brand 'House of Stand Up' being born with its first performance in June 2011.
“Many of our 500 plus comedians are every bit as good as anything you’ll see on ‘Live at the Apollo’ in fact, some have been on that and other TV shows.”
Trevor also writes jokes and sketch material for himself, as a compère and after dinner speaker, and for his alter-ego Noah Fence (left). As well as material for other comedians under his Humorously Speaking brand.
His measure of a good comedian is simple. They make the audience laugh!
Laughter's a great way to attract new customers, increase business revenue and boost your charity fundraising events...
