Popular comedy club set to open new venue in Leeds city centre

This is going to be a right laugh.

The Glee Club will welcome some of the UK’s best comics to its new venue on Albion Street.

A brand new comedy club has been granted a licence until 3am in Leeds City Centre.

The application for a premises licence was submitted to Leeds City Council by club owners Comic Enterprises Ltd, claiming: “If granted, this would be Leeds’ only dedicated comedy club, a cultural benefit to the city.

“They are an industry leader and an award-winning operator.”

The Glee Club has seen top UK comics such as Joe Lycett and Michael McIntyre perform on their stages.

With venues in Birmingham, Glasgow and Manchester – they’ve made a name for themselves at providing punters with a proper good laugh.

Opening its first venue in Birmingham back in 1994, and at the time it was the first purpose-built comedy club outside London.

The new venue on Albion Street will replace the old comedy club Jongleurs, and the licence will allow the sale of alcohol between 10pm and 3am.

The licence application said: “The Glee Clubs are a group of live comedy, music and special events venues.

“They are the home of stand-up comedy, with regular mixed-bill weekend shows and big names on tour with their solo shows.

“They also host inspiring music gigs, spoken word, talks and cabaret and burlesque shows.”

There were nine letters of objection to the club opening from nearby householders, but the Glee Club was told its licence would be granted, subject to agreed conditions.
