Comedy club expands into Midlands town

Just The Tonic comedy club is launching a new venture in Leamington Spa.

The chain – which operates in Birmingham, London, Leicester, Nottingham, Reading, Watford as well as at the Edinburgh Fringe  – will be running a monthly gig at the Leamington Assembly Hall.

Reginald D Hunter will headline the first gig in the Warwickshire town on Saturday February 8, supported by Andrew O’Neill, Guz Khan and  Matt Richardson. Full listings are here.

The art-deco building, constructed in 1926, had fallen into disrepair and closed last June – only to re-open three months later with new owners 

Darrell Martin, Just the Tonic’s director, said: ’It is very exciting to see this great Grade II listed building alive again, it is a really fantastic space for comedy.  I’m looking forward to seeing hundreds of people laughing to what we do best.

Today's comedy-on demand picks


This is the show that celebrated the launch of Nick Helm's album in 2016, and has previously been unseen by anyone who was not in the O2 Forum Kentish Town that night.

With typical hyperbole, the show is described thusly: 'Under-rehearsed, under-prepared and under pressure, Nick and his band somehow managed to pull together the greatest show in the last 27 years of living memory. That show went down as a thing of legend, often spoken about by weary travellers around campfires, but thought to have been lost to the sands of time forever.'
