COMEDY group Jongleurs plans to launch a new club in Liverpool this year.

The club is one of six new venues set to be opened following a pounds 2million investment.

The others are planned for Manchester, Nottingham, Cambridge, Sheffield and Newcastle, and are part of a joint venture with the UK's largest private bar and club operator Novus Leisure.

The move means there will be 11 Jongleurs clubs around the UK by the end of 2010, with plans for further rollouts in 2011.

A new Jongleurs will join Liverpool's other major comedy venues which include Rawhide which operates from Downstairs at the Royal Court, Baby Blue on the Albert Dock and Laughterhouse at two city centre venues.

Jongleurs co-owner John Davy said: "This fresh investment will help bring our unique offering to even more customers and new audiences."

It is not yet known where the new Liverpool club will be sited, but four years ago the ECHO revealed the company was looking to open a venue in Seel Street in the Ropewalks.

Jongleurs, which was established in London in 1983, has helped launch the careers of stars including a raft of comic greats such as Eddie Izzard, Harry Enfield and Jack Dee.
