Always ones with an eye for a great deal, those nice folk down at The Lancaster Comedy Club have put together a rather special deal for those who enjoy a good guffaw and gourmet grub! As the food is coming from The Borough's Michelin recommended brasserie (the twice monthly comedy gig is held above it) then buying now while stocks last is definitely recommended!

The delights on offer include IPA Battered Mini Fish and Chips served with chips and minted mushy peas, a 4oz Locally Reared Flat Iron Steak or The Borough’s World Famous Club Sandwich which combines free range chicken, smoked bacon, lettuce, mayonnaise and a lightly tossed salad.

In terms of comedy, Sunday 16th January sees Perrier Award-noninated comedian Howard Read return to The Borough after taking the roof off a year ago.  Although best known to the nations kids as 'Big Howard, Little Howard' from CBBC it's fair to say Howard's stand up set really isn't something you would want the kids to see...

Howard is joined by half Irish, half Jamaican comic Mike Belgrave, Rhys Jones and Hull's Sam Harland.

Roger MonkhouseThe fun continues on Sunday 30th January when stand up veteran Roger Monkhouse shows Lancaster what has kept him at the top of his game for the last fifteen years; as Chortle puts it, "unfailingly entertaining and skilfully able to pull punchlines, seemingly, out of thin air."

Roger will be more than ably supported by two of the star's from TV's FHM Stand Up Hero series - Kai Humphries and Danny Pensive with the madcap Phil Ellis compering.

The shows start at 8.00pm prompt and admission is £8 on the door, or £6 in advance from The Borough, or online via their website. The special offer on comedy and dining is strictly limited and needs to be paid for in advance on 01524 64170.

And the price? £10.75 for both! It would seem safe to assume that The Borough's phone is going to be very busy...
