A laugh a minute?

If your Valentine loves a good laugh, why not think about taking them out to a comedy night in town?

There are loads of great comedy venues in London, and further afield in Manchester and Leeds. Plus it makes a difference from the typical night in a restaurant staring at other self-conscious couples or having to go to the trouble of cooking up a meal for two at home.

In London we can recommend Amused Moose in Soho, Boat Show on the Victoria Embankment or the comedy stalwart The Comedy Store. In Leeds there’s the Big Night Out Comedy and in Manchester there’s The Frog and Bucket and The Comedy Store. Now, we’ve checked and not all of these are open on Tuesday nights but you could book it for the weekend and make that loving feeling last all week.

Perhaps you are not feeling that flush and a night in is the only option. You can order in a takeaway and snuggle up on the sofa with a good comedy video. The CellarVie Wines team love Sarah Millican – she’s naughty but nice like the cakes she talks about eating so much.

As someone once said, “Laughter is the way to true love”.
