Cottingham Comedy Club presents Big Lou Jones
Thu 11th Jul 2019 @ 7:30 pm£8 – £10
Cottingham Comedy Club, the village’s only comedy venue, provides an unique comedy experience in many ways. This intimate club with an inclusive, all-are-welcome atmosphere gets you up close and personal with the acts, many of whom are breaking through into TV, or are established acts from the UK and international comedy circuit. We are a welcoming venue and we have a dedicated room for the comedy, with regular breaks between the acts for you to lubricate your throats with laughter juice. With four acts and a compere it’s great value for money at less than £2 per comedian. We think it’s the most fun you can have with friends on a midweek night out.
We are Back at the Backroom, our beautiful new(ish) venue and now with a regular night of the second Thursday of every month. Once again we have a brilliant headline act for you, a legend of the northern comedy scene, we are delighted to present to you, amazingly for the first time ever, our good friend Big Lou Jones.
Manchester based Big Lou, is a well known face on the comedy scene who has a commanding stage presence matched by his punchlines and timing of their delivery.
Big Lou has played most of the premier comedy venues in the North West and beyond and Cottingham Comedy Club is going to absolutely love him.
Some of the praise for Big Lou Jones:
“Big Lou, a robust gag-merchant, the material is original as well as punchy, while Lou is blessed with funny bones that kept the laughs coming” – Steve Bennett CHORTLE: The UK Comedy Guide
“Big Lou was on the first ever Manfords Comedy Club Night and he was there because we thought he’d smash it. He Did!” – Colin Manford, Co-Owner Manfords Comedy Clubs
Plus the usual support: a professional opener and two of the best up and coming acts in the middle section. This month’s opening act is Joe Bromehead (“Absolutely brilliant” Michael Wilkinson BBC “Joe is a rare thing, a total comedy natural!” Richard Hirst LOVE COMEDY), an instant hit with audiences with a completely unique and hilarious opening which places the audience in the palm of his hand right from the start.
And hosting proceedings is everyone’s second favourite compere, self-proclaimed local celebrity and sex-symbol known to some as The Man, The Myth, The Legend, and to many more as The Other One Who Sometimes Does The Compere Thing But Isn’t Quite Rich Austin: it’s Jed Salisbury.
