I've recently started doing some stand-up and I've done 5 gigs so far. However I'm finding it very difficult to get gigs as I'm only 16.
Unless I missed a change in the Law, it's perfectly legal for under-18s to enter most licensed premises - they just can't drink alcohol.
My local open mike pub regularly has under-18s doing their ten minutes worth.. but I wouldn't recommend it for budding stand-ups: you need balls of steel to try comedy there, especially if you come on after a bouzouki band.. and I won't mention the poets..
