Back by popular demand, Jongleurs comedy is returning to the Marine Hall.

They tore the roof off during their last appearance back in April, so now four more of the country’s best stand-up comedians are gracing the stage in Fleetwood once more.

They are coming to the Fleetwood venue on Friday July 19, from 8pm.

It will give Fleetwood and Wyre fans of modern, contemporary comedy a chance to catch some of the brightest, up-and-coming funnymen in the country.

They may not be household names just yet, but Jongleurs shows have been a platform for stars-to-be for years.

The Jongleurs Comedy Club was established in London’s Lavender Hill, Battersea in 1983, showcasing a whole host of comedians who would later go on to become huge names. Past Jongleurists have included Jack Dee, Paul Merton, Rory Bremner, Lee Evans, Jo Brand, Graham Norton, the Fylde coast’s Jenny Eclair, Dylan Moran, Al Murray and Omid Djalili.

Appearing in the Fleetwood show this time will be comedy club favourite, Danny Buckler, TV comedy writer Alex Boardman, actor and writer John Warburton and international star Will-E Robo.

Danny Buckler has a unique style which combines stand-up comedy, improvisation, story-telling and audience participation.

He has travelled all over the world as a performer whether it’s entertaining the troops in Bosnia, Belfast and The Falkland Islands or performing in comedy clubs in Germany and Singapore. 

Alex Boardman was one of a small band of writers who worked on the second series of John Bishop’s Britain on BBC 1 and he made a significant contribution to it being the highest rated stand-up show of 2011. He is a skilled performer in his own right, due to his ability to seemingly conjure something out of nothing. He is not related to Stan Boardman!

John Warburton combines one-liners, observational comedy and the occasional song. And American comedian Will-E Robo made memorable appearances on P Diddy’s Bad Boys of Comedy, in 2005 and 2007 for which he was given the title of P Diddy’s Number 1 Bad Boy of Comedy.

Tickets are £12 each or £10 if you book ten, and are available from the box office on (01253) 887693 or at www.marinehall.co.uk. For more on Jongleurs visit www.jongleurs.com.
