News: Jason Manford and Kerry Godliman Play Latest Just The Tonic Show

News: Jason Manford Signs Up For Soccer Aid Team

Comedy club Just the Tonic has announced the line-up for it's latest Working From Home online gig. Jason Manford and Kerry Godliman (from After Life) will appear on June 13.

Streaming live from his spare room, the comedy promoter Darrell Martin is the MC (and frankly a bewildered tech), who feeds comedians into his bizarre world. The show mixes live chat with sketches, pre-recorded pieces and stand up, alongside music from his ‘Jukebox of Joy’. With his line-up waiting in a virtual green room, this stripped down daft show will showcase nuggets of gold with stories, rants and random thoughts from him and his guests throughout. Just don't expect a traditional comedy gig.

This unique and revolutionary show will be streamed live only but once it is done, its gone!  Shown in HD, and available to watch on tablets, phones, laptops and desktops you just have to be there!  Audiences are strongly encouraged to create their own watching parties – because comedy is always better with mates. 

Darrell Martin says: ‘Don’t expect a normal stand-up show; the world has changed, and stand-up is a format for being in a room with people and all the atmosphere that comes with it. We are not trying to recreate that, so join us with an open mind.” 

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. Past and recent performers include the likes of Ricky Gervais, Al Murray, Bill Bailey, Stewart Lee, Simon Pegg, Noel Fielding, Dylan Moran, Ross Noble, Daniel Kitson and Johnny Vegas. 


TIMINGS: 8.30pm: Doors & Jukebox of Joy. 9pm: Show Starts
