Ross sidekick launches comedy club

Andy Davies, known to TV and radio audiences as Jonathan Ross's sidekick, is to launch a new comedy club.

Davies, a BBC producer, is one of the two promoters behind the Minx club in Stoke Newington, north London.

The intimate club will offer nights of acoustic music on Wednesdays as well as comedy on Thursdays.

It opens on March 6 with Bobby Valentino and Catherine Porter, with comedy the following night from Adam Bloom, Lee Mack and MC Richard Morton.

Acts booked to appear in future weeks include Johnny Vegas, Simon Munnery, Ross Noble and Daniel Kitson.

The club's other promoter is Ingrid Ricciardello, who has just moved from Sydney where she ran a comedy management agency.
