Phoenix Nights

Brand New Comedy: Phoenix Nights
UKTV – Fridays from 15th June, 9.00pm

A top-notch British comedy depicting the problems encountered in running a Bolton social club, The Phoenix. Its licensee is the bad-tempered, wheelchair-bound Brian Potter struggles through mountains of difficulties – many of his own making – to form the basis of the storylines. Brian is no stranger to club management but he has been dogged by bad luck – his first club flooded, his second burned down and then (at the end of the first series) the Phoenix went the same way, only to rise from the ashes in yet another new venture. Aiding Brian at the Phoenix are a motley staff: the resident MC Jerry St Clair, the dangerously keen electrician/DJ Ray, the useless doormen Max and Paddy, the bar and cleaning staff Holy Mary and Marion, the gormless handyman Kenny and the musical twosome Alan and Les.
