THE now Blackpool-based Comedy Station Comedy Club turns 10 years old this year and returns to the Winter Gardens with the first show of 2012 on Thursday February 9.

Making a more than welcome return to headline the show is star of ITV’s Comedy Heroes, Danny Pensive.

From Newquay to Aberdeen and from Swansea to Bridlington (not mention Poulton, where he brought the house down when the club was based at the now defunct Edge), John Cooper’s brilliant character Danny Pensive recalls the things that made the places he has been special and memorable.

His routine is interspersed with songs and anecdotes and he delivers each word as though it is separate from those around it. His observations are almost childlike and told with such openness that he is impossible to dislike.

Opening the show will be the unique Bethany Black. Once described as “unremarkable” she has gone on to amuse audiences throughout the UK with excruciatingly embarrassing true stories from her daily life. Through her honesty and confessional style she has started to build herself a cult following. This goth, lesbian stand-up comic is nothing short of unique.

Host and compere for the show will be Blackpool’s own Ryan Gleeson. An established act in his own right, Ryan has been entertaining audiences across the UK since 1997, appearing on TV shows such as This Morning, Richard Hammond’s 5 O’Clock show and Channel 4’s So You Think You’re Funny?. Ryan is also a three time finalist in the North West Comedian of the Year award. Doors open at 8pm for a 9pm show start.
