Ryan Gleeson, from Thornton and his wife Jen have spent the past two weeks preparing the former Under Bar in Bank Hey Street for tonight's big opening.

Ryan said: “Having my own comedy club is pretty much the last thing on my bucket list. It is something I have always wanted to do.

“I started getting some health issues about four years ago which made travelling to do stand up gigs difficult and, at the same time, our Comedy Station nights at Viva were selling out, so this was the right time to get my own place.”
