Johnny Vegas headlines Just the Tonic Birmingham on 18th February

The Just the Tonic comedy club returns to Birmingham on Thursday 18th February for a much-anticipated night, with headliner Johnny Vegas. St Helens’ finest comedy export will be top of the bill at 6 On Broad Street, hot on the heels of the promoters’ Birmingham launch which was hosted by Ross Noble. With a regular roster of big names at venues across the UK, Just the Tonic looks set to be a huge addition to Birmingham’s stand-up scene.

Vegas, aka Michael Pennington, is an acolyte of Who’s Laughing Now? favourites Stewart Lee and Simon Munnery, performing with them in the cultish Cluub Zarathustra. He shot to fame as a regular panellist on Shooting Stars, alongside a string of other television appearances.

Other acts on the bill include Jarred Christmas, The Boy With Tape On His Face, and special guests. Tickets are £15 and are available from the Just the Tonic website.
