The comedians should have been vetted to be funny. The joke about abortion was the most poorly thought out, delivered, and executed joke I had ever heard at a comedy show and did not get a single laugh. David O'Doherty was brilliant. The sound and microphone needed more work. More food choices were needed, but the food available was fantastic.

a few teething problems such as long queues for the bar, seats too close for people to get up for bar/toilet without bashing everyone on the row, but generally speaking good and I'm sure they will learn from the first night for the future gigs

Money is tight at the moment so going out we have to make it count. This was just enough but thought it could be a risk. So glad we did it as we had an amazing night. Wish we could afford to pay more for such fine acts they were worth every penny. We are being priced out of a lot of things, this was a real treat. Thank you

really need to work on the sound before I'd consider coming back for more comedy which is a shame. slower speaking comedians I could hear but faster talking ones were unintelligible. one level seating made it difficult to see. food provision was great and service at the bar super quick.

Had an amazing night but queues for a drink were huge and it put me off going to the bar. Please have two bars next time! Also the sound wasnâ??t great, definitely need speakers on the floor rather than the roof

Great gig and great venue. Loved that there were local food vendors there too. Only suggestion would be to have the headliner on for longer and have three warm ups instead of four. Overall I loved it though and would definitely recommend.

Great comedy night. David o'doherty was superb. The other acts were good too, particularly Jack Gleadow.
The venue is spectacular. Nice donut. It might be an idea to have to bars for the number of people in there. We sat at the side and struggled to hear some of the acts clearly early on but it was a minor detail.

I thought I was paying to see David O'Doherty, but he was on stage for less than 30 minutes because there were 5 other acts, 2 breaks and a raffle before him. It was fine, but not what I wanted and I felt cheated. They should be clearer about what to expect, because all of the promotion makes it seem like you're seeing a solo show of the headliner.

Loved the venue, fantastic idea!
The sound issue was mentioned many times, but we only had a problem hearing the compere, he seemed to talk too fast, no problems hearing anyone else.
We're booking for the next comedy gig today, best venue ever! Great to use the Cathedral for gigs, loved it!

Review of Cathedral of Comedy: David O\'Doherty

David O’Doherty was absolutely fantastic but sadly the sound for the whole of the short apart from when he was on was simply not audible. . It was so frustrating because it’s an amazing venue and I genuinely feel like asking for my money back. I genuinely couldn’t make out 2/3 of the act. This was a great pity as it seemed like the middle of the audience got here fine. I was going to buy tickets for The other comedians they have lined up but I need some reassurance that the sound quality would mean I could at least hear what they were saying

the atmosphere was incredible we were greeted by the vicar first who encouraged everyone to laugh and have a great time. from then, the MC had amazing energy and charisma and did a fantastic job of bridging the gap between acts. amazing donuts. main act was absolutely hilarious, genuinely gave myself a headache from all the laughing.

All great fun & seemed to be well organised.
There were initial difficulties understanding/hearing the MC - but this was addressed & was fine later. All of the other acts were perfectly audible.
A great venue!

We were at the back of the Cathedral and the sound quality was extremely poor, we were unable to hear and understand the compère and most of the comedians. Whilst the actual venue was remarkable, I’d certainly not recommend the event, unless the production team completed a competent and thorough sound check. For us, it was a complete waste of time and money!!

Review of Cathedral of Comedy: David O\'Doherty

It was a great evening overall in an amazing venue. We realise it was the first of these events and there were some teething issues. Main issue was the sound from the mic wasn’t clear at times. Also, there was a long queue for the bar. Timings weren’t provided so we saw people leaving to get trains as it was very late by the time the headline act came on. The rows of chairs didn’t have much space in between so it was quite difficult to let people out of a row.

A difficult one because the Comedy was great. Of what I could hear. The acoustics in the cathedral weren’t great and there was a or of exho making it difficult to understand what people were saying. The comedians did try to counter this by holding the mic further away it or still wasn’t great

The venue was. Nice place to have it, an extra bar would have been food. The food was great

The only problem was the acoustics

the audio in a church was not good we could not hear the performers well, its a wonderful venue for singers but not talking. i also did not expect to wait so long for the main act either.

the drinks where limited and expensive
