Alfresco events have become the norm since coronavirus sent us all scurrying into lockdown, but Up at The O2 has launched an open-air gig with a difference…
Stand Up at The O2 is an all-new event series offering you the chance to enjoy an exclusive comedy performance on top of the world’s number one music, entertainment and leisure venue – once you’ve climbed it.
The urban mountaineering experience has partnered with award-winning comedian Suzi Ruffell to host the events.
The experience will start with an exhilarating climb up to the roof of The O2, followed by Ruffell’s intimate comedy set of exclusive material, complete with 360-degree, panoramic views of the capital, before climbing back down to Base Camp.
As seen on The Jonathan Ross Show, Live at the Apollo and The Last Leg, and praised by The Guardian as a ‘stand-up gem’, Ruffell has established herself as one of the top upcoming comedic talents, completing five sell-out runs at Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
‘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,’ said the comic. ‘I think it’s going to be a lot of fun.’
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.

Plus, with Greenwich Comedy Festival rolling into town at the National Maritime Museum in late September, SE10 seems to be the place to be for a good laugh this September.
The events will take place on 19 & 26 September and 3 October at 7pm, 7.30pm and 8pm. Tickets are £40pp including a climb led by an Up at The O2 expert guide, a comedy performance on the roof with a mocktail, and the option of a champagne upgrade on arrival. Click here to book.
And why not make a day of it? The O2 is also home to the Icon Outlet, where some 60 fashion and lifestyle brands offer up to 70% off, as well as Hollywood Bowl, Cineworld, Oxygen Freejumping and over 30 bars and restaurants. Plus, while The O2 arena remains closed for events in line with government advice, you can take a Backstage Tour until the end of September.
