Tonight may be only the second comedy night at Korova Arts Café & Bar in Preston but they are already gaining a strong reputation.
This latest Korova Komedy sees three of the top comedians from around the North West take to the stage, headlined by former winner of the City Life North West Comedian of the Year, an award that has been previously won by Peter Kay, Caroline Aherne, Dave Spikey and Jason Manford.
Andy Watson (inset) has been making a name for himself with his quickfire act and sharp one-liners.
Also appearing are Richard Massara, Rock Radio Comedian of the Year and Preston Comedian of the Year at the Frog & Bucket, and rising star of the Manchester comedy scene Big Lou Jones.
The evening has been put together by Preston-based comedian, John Gray who reckons the city’s comedy audiences have been some of the best.
He was delighted with how the first evening went: “It was a small intimate feel which meant acts were relaxed on stage and could play around with the audience a little without the big crowd pleaser material they sometimes have to resort to in a bigger venue.
“Jonathan Mayor did a 50-minute set that was an absolute delight.”
