New comedy club set for town night spot
A NEW comedy night has arrived in Knutsford with organisers hoping it will build on the success of its popular music nights.
The Brook Street Club, formerly the Liberal Club, was taken over by Social Promotions in 2011, with the hope of attracting songwriters, bands and comedians to secure the club’s long-term future.
After seeing its last six gigs completely sell out – including Saturday’s performance from Miles and Erica from The Wonder Stuff – the venue has now set up a monthly comedy night.
‘LOL Cheshire’ will begin tomorrow, Thursday, September 6, at 8pm at the club.
The club told the Guardian it intends to brings a collection of fine comedians to the club, with the hope it can catch on.
For this first comedy gathering performances will be from Mike Wilkinson, who is described as ‘full to the brim with down to earth northern charm’ and Steve Goodall. The compere for the night is Kenny Mills.
Chris Stott, from the Brook Street Club, said he hoped the town and the surrounding area would support the event.
“We want to make sure the building is used at all times and we know that a lot of people have a love for music but at the same time there is a lot of love for comedy as well,” he said.
“All of the acts are paid to come down and we’ve got a guy who has worked on the circuit who is booking the acts for us. This first event is to test the water but I’ve been told Thursday’s are the new Friday’s.”
Tickets are available for reservation via the website at just £6, visit brookstreetclub.co.uk/tickets for more information.
