Your Money: Can't go Jong.

Byline: EDITED by CLINTON MANNING

REGENT Inns wants to expand Jongleurs - the comedy clubs where some of Britain's top stand-up acts have cut their teeth.

Regent boss Bob Ivell said yesterday that despite having sites nationwide, Jongleurs still had not moved into major cities such as Newcastle.

Ivell said: "We have 17 Jongleurs at the moment but there's no reason why we can't take that to 25."

Pub landlord Al Murray, Graham Norton and Rory Bremner all started out at Jongleurs clubs.

Profits at Regent, which also owns the Walkabout pub chain, fell pounds 1million to pounds 11.3million in the year to July 2. But Ivell said the business had now recovered from its near collapse a year ago.
