Aldridge Calling

New comedy club to launch next week.

The launch of Aldridge’s new comedy night The Aldridge Comedy Social Club, postponed from July, will take place at Aldridge Social Club on Wednesday 19th September.

Wolverhampton’s internet sensation Gary Powndland, whose videos have received over three million views in the past six months will be performing, with this year’s English Comedian of the Year Nick Page, who appeared in Britain’s Got Talent Live semi-finals, headlining the show.

Free Radio’s Lovdev Barpaga – 2017 Pun Champion and Free Radio Breakfast show host – will also feature, plus a set from Charmian Hughes from London. Compering the night will be Birmingham-based MC Paul Savage.

Organiser Julie Rennison commented “I book comedians for venues and events all over the country, so I was asked if I could put together a show to bring more entertainment and visitors to my home town of Aldridge”.

Julie, who is originally from South Manchester, has lived in the area for eighteen years and runs consultancy Cohesion Ltd. Locally, she runs the annual music youth charity event BENefit Gig and plans the programme and development of Sutton Coldfield Town Hall. She’s also part of the team at Light House Cinema and Cafe Bar in Wolverhampton and is currently running a high profile campaign to keep the community venue open. “Everywhere seems to be struggling for visitors at the moment,” she added, “so I was pleased to help Aldridge by bringing in an incredible line up you’d normally only see in a major comedy club”.

The follow up show on 24th October show will feature Britain’s Got Talent’s Mandy Muden, Andrew McBurney, Craig Deeley and MC Maureen Younger.

Tickets can be purchased directly from the High Street Club at £8, online via or via the organisers, Juney’s Comedy on 01922 456 742.

The event is open to over 18s and the bar will open at 7pm, with the show starting at 8pm.
