The comedy club at the Borough pub has announced some big names for July.

Mancunian funny man Justin Moorhouse has come a long way since his salesman days.

Since turning to comedy the former businessman has become a firm favourite on stand up circuity and more locally at The Borough pub.

And the Lancaster venue will welcome the Phoenix Nights star with a host of other top comics to their weekly comedy club in the coming weeks.

Moorhouse, who has also appeared in Coronation Street and hosts his own radio show, will preview his show ‘People and Feelings’ on Sunday July 24, ahead of his Edinburgh Fringe Festival special.

The dad will talk about weight, animals and family when he premiers his Scotland show. Moorhouse was a part of the Phoenix Nights Live show at the Manchester Arena which last year raised more than £5m for Comic Relief.

BAFTA award winning comic Jo Caulfield, known for Have I Got News For You and Live At The Apollo, will preview her show ‘The Customer Is Always Wrong’ on Sunday July 31.

While Sunday July 17 sees television favourite Rob Rouse perform ‘Roboscopy’.

The Borough hosts its comedy club every Sunday at 8pm and has previously welcomed Liverpool comedian John Bishop. Admission is £9 on the door, £7 in advance online booking and full details of all the shows are at www.lancastercomedy.co.uk.
