Since we first opened...
you must be bored, or skiving at work, nobody ever reads this bit!
So, what have we been up to since 2002?
The Comedy Station Comedy Club boasts not only to be the first ever and therefore, longest running comedy club in Blackpool, but since moving to our purpose built venue on Bank Hey Street, right opposite The Blackpool Tower, we're now the only purpose built comedy venue in all of Lancashire and still, officially, the best (legal) thing to do at night, in the entire county of Lancashire!*
Our Directors and comedy bookers have been working in the comedy industry a long time, having over 40 years experience between them and we have shows all through the year, not just during the Summer season, so there's always a reason to be happy, any time of the year.
The Comedy Station Comedy Club first opened it's doors in a function room above a restaurant in Blackpool town centre in 2002. The club's audience began to exceed the capacity of this venue, so we packed up our microphone and moved to a bar nearby, which could accommodate our ever increasing number of followers.
That venue was then suddenly sold by its owners, leaving the Comedy Station homeless. Fortunately, we found temporary accommodation and moved once more to the World famous Winter Gardens, before moving to a cabaret venue in the centre of Blackpool. This venue catered more to the older holidaymakers, more suited to the old school comedians from the early 80s, than the cutting edge comedy from stars of Mock the Week and Have I Got News For You! After a few years at this venue, we again outgrew the small, very, very hot room and in 2019, we decided to seriously up our game and built Lancashire's only purpose built comedy club.
Over the years, we've played host to well known comedians such as Jason Manford, Justin Moorhouse, Tape Face, Tom Stade, Angelos Epithemiou, Lee Nelson, Charlie Chuck, Junior Simpson and even appearances from comedy legends like Mick Miller and an impromptu spot, by Bobby Ball, who just happened to be in the audience, one night!
We pride ourselves on bringing the very best that the U.K. stand-up comedy scene has to offer and with comedians from TV shows, such as Mock the Week, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Never Mind the Buzzcocks and Live at the Apollo and many, many more, you'll certainly not be disappointed!
