Stourbridge comedy club in the running for regional prize

Headline acts have included Joe Lycett and Gary Delaney

A comedy club in Stourbridge is in the running to be crowned the best in the Midlands.

‘Fitz of Laughter’, which runs monthly in the marquee at Katie Fitzgerald’s in Wollaston, has made the final shortlist for “Best Midlands Comedy Night” in the What’s On Readers Awards following a public vote. The club was started three-and-a-half years ago by Dudley comic, Wayne Beese, and his wife Nikki.

It has played host to a number of star names from the world of stand-up, including Joe Lycett, Gary Delaney, Archie Kelly and Jo Enright. Wayne, who also comperes proceedings at the club, said:

“If people have been along and enjoyed it, we’d really appreciate if they have a couple of seconds to log on and vote for us. You don’t have to vote in all the categories.

“It would be great to be able to say the best comedy night in the Midlands is right here in Stourbridge.”

It is not the first award the club has been nominated for – in 2016 it finished third in a public vote for Best Comedy Club at the Midlands Comedy Awards.

Voting is open until Friday March 2nd. To vote for Fitz of Laughter, which is in category 18, click here:

The club runs on the first Friday of every month and the next night is this Friday, where just 10 tickets remain to see a special mystery TV headliner who has appeared on the likes of Live At The Apollo, Mock The Week and Have I Got News For You.

Support is in the shape of Gareth Berliner, who played Macca in Coronation Street, and zany prop comic Alf, from Devon.

Doors open at 8pm, and the show starts at 8.30pm. Tickets cost £10 plus booking fees and are available online
