Jongleurs spreading the laughs.

COMEDY group Jongleurs has announced plans to launch six new clubs this year following a pounds 2m investment.

The clubs, which will be opened in Nottingham, Cambridge, Liverpool, Manchester, Sheffield and Newcastle, 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.

The latest expansion plans follow the opening of three new clubs already this year, including a flagship club at Sway, which is owned by Novus Leisure, in Covent Garden.

The group reported strong demand for its new comedy package, Jongleurs Posh, at its Sway venue, which offers a three course dinner, table service and four stand-up acts for pounds 40.

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

"The appetite for a complete comedy and entertainment experience is stronger than ever and we are experiencing unprecedented demand from corporate and larger group bookings in particular who are looki n g fo r a n e n t e r t a i n m e n t one-stop-shop."
