Just The Tonic Announces Nationwide Shows This Summer

Jason Manford to Host The National Lottery's Big Night of Musicals
News: New Mental Health Awareness Podcasts from Kiri Pritchard-McLean, Riyadh Khalaf, Jessica Fostekew, Jen Brister and Brett Goldstein

Just the Tonic was one of the first comedy venues to offer COVID safe comedy in summer/autumn 2020. Learning from an event as part of DCMS trial shows, they went on to produce a large number of safe socially distanced, sell out shows featuring the likes of Jimmy Carr, Jason Manford, Rich Hall and may others.   

Darrell Martin, owner of the comedy chain, says: “Our future events are presently being ticketed as if the events were to be socially distanced. This means that even if the hoped for lifting of restrictions on June 21st doesn’t happen, these gigs can still go ahead. We understand that there might be some apprehension about buying tickets but your money is safe with our events. All ticket money is held by our ticketing agency Seetickets, so even if any events are postponed or cancelled, you can be assured that your hard earned pennies are safe with a reputable agency and not in the pockets of promoters.

So, you would get your money back or the tickets could be transferred to another show at a later date. We have great experience at running safe socially distanced events. We have some great comedians lined up that make each night more than just a night at a comedy gig. Each gig is an event as we have booked a host of household names to encourage you to put down your TV remote, book some tickets and actually go out… like we all used to, remember, in the old days. Don’t be doom and gloom, switch off the zoom and come to a Just the Tonic Comedy Club room. Boom Boom!”  

Just the Tonic was launched in Nottingham over 25 years ago and has played host to countless up-and-coming comics as well as the most established TV names. It is now one of the most respected live comedy brands across the UK with venues in Leicester, Birmingham, Nottingham, Reading and Watford.  It also runs shows at leading festivals including the Leicester Comedy Festival and the Edinburgh Festival.
