It's Jongleurs all the way; your money: : COMEDY.
THE founders of comedy club chain Jongleurs are planning a major expansion after the firm that bought the venues went bust.
Maria Kempinska and John Davy sold their eight clubs - where Harry Hill and Lee Evans cut their comedy teeth - to Regent Inns in 2000 for pounds 8.5million.
But Regent, which also ran the Walkabout chain, went into administration last month. Kempinska and Davy have the last laugh, as it means they can use the Jongleurs name again.
They will start by staging comedy nights in existing venues.
"Comedy in Britain has never been stronger," Kempinska told us. "People need something to cheer them in a recession."
STAND UP CHAP Harry Hill
