Union Jack radio confirms stand-up broadcasts

Club nights to air from October 7

Digital radio station Union Jack has announced a launch date for its new stand-up show.

Union Jack Radio Comedy Club  has been recorded at venues across the UK featuring comics such as Scott Bennett, Jen Ives, Eshaan Akbar, Steph Laing, Jenny Collier, Sikisa and Will Duggan.

The first hour-long show airs at 10pm on Thursday October 7 and features Paul McCaffrey, Nina Gilligan (pictureed) and Aaron Simmonds

Dick Stone from the station said: ‘The Union JACK Radio Comedy Club has been a huge success so far, supporting comedians as they strive to bounce back from the impact of the pandemic and giving comedy fans across the country a really fun, live show.

‘We’re excited to now share some of the routines with our listeners and with comedy lovers who haven’t made it along to one of the live comedy club nights yet.’

The gigs are being recorded at venues including The Frog & Bucket in Manchester, Chuckle Busters in Bristol, Giggles Live at Social in Hull and The Big Difference in Leicester.

Union Jack is available on digital radio, online at unionjack.co.uk or via  its app.
