Prepare for laughter when the latest event at The Comedy Club Derby takes place at Derby County’s ipro Stadium on Saturday, January 31.

After a successful opening show in November, The Comedy Club is back with a line–up of three top comedians, as seen on TV.

The host comedian is the dry, slick and subtle stand-up James Redmond, who has made appearances on Coronation Street (ITV) Emmerdale (ITV) Hollyoaks (Ch4), Casualty (BBC1) and Never Mind the Buzzcocks (BBC2).

Opening comedian is Rob Rouse, of Dave’s One Night Stand (Dave), Celebrity Juice (ITV2) and 8 out of 10 Cats (C4). Rob is an award winning comedian having won C4’s prestigious So You Think You’re Funny? Competition at the Edinburgh Festival. He was one of the presenters of The Friday Night Project for Channel 4.

Headline comedian Phil Butler has always been a popular act, serving his apprenticeship in holiday parks, end of the pier shows, pantos and cruise ships. Wanting to explore new challenges, in 2001 he joined the UK comedy circuit, where he is now found closing the show at all the major comedy clubs. Phil has also had the great honour of performing for our British troops in Iraq and more recently Afghanistan. Tickets are £20 (including two-course curry meal) or £12 for the comedy only. For Comedy Club members, it’s £17 and £10.

Doors open at 7pm and show time is 9pm. Call the box office on 01332 202202.
