Went to see Jimmy Carr as a group, seated row C in the balcony, great view, comfortable seats, bar is a nightmare, needs an in and out section to get some sort of organisation, chaotic at best

I think Row M in the stalls as there is absolutely loads of leg room. Defo not front row balcony. Check the seating plan tho first before you book.
