Daves One Night Stand Awards 2013

The results for Dave's One Night Stand Awards 2013 have finally been announced.

The winner was The Frog & Bucket Comedy Club in Manchester.

The Northwest continues to be a hotbed of comedy talent at the moment with The Frog and Bucket going from strength to strength with its consistent high quality of comedians and diverse shows such as Beat the Frog, Laughing Cow and Barrel of Laughs nights.

The runner up was Daly's Comedy Club in Omagh and third place went to Big Night Out in Leeds.

Meanwhile, Lancashire based The Ha Ha Club had no less than three venues in the top ten. They were Ffos Las in Carmarthenshire, Warwick Racecourse in Warwickshire and Carnegie Hall in Dunfermline. They were placed fifth, seventh and eighth respectively. 

Bryan Malcolm, who set up the Chorley-based comedy club around two years ago, said: "I was delighted that one of our venues was voted in to the top ten never mind three. It's unbelievable and a fantastic achievement."

The Ha Ha Club has built up a superb reputation in the last few years, hosting gigs in and around Lancashire in such places at The Sparrowhawk in Fence and Burscough Wharf in Burscough with top comedians taking to the stage such as Chris Ramsey and Nick Helm.

Bryan added: "To be recognised in a national competition like this shows that the hard work we have put in is worth it."
