It's third time lucky for wheelchair-bound club owner Brian Potter, as we join him at the Grand Gala opening of his new venue. It's The Phoenix, rising from the ashes of the illfated, burned-down Neptune. The only way is up for Brian and his staff Jerry St Clair, Max and Paddy, Les Alanos, Ray Von, Holy Mary and dog-worrying fire officer Keith Lard. But the glory days of the industry have long passed, and Brian is struggling to get people through the doors and into the bar. The gala opening with TV's Roy Walker guarantees local press coverage, but from then on it's a fight to survive. Can Wild West night, a Das Boot fruit machine, The Funny Farm, fifty-fifty dancing and the legendary Talent Trek with Chorley FM's Paul LeRoy ('coming in your ears') keep the punters entertained? Brian's compere and right-hand man Jerry St Clair is our guide to the chaos that is the Phoenix. Friends with Brian since way back when, Jerry sees more than he knows and knows less than he thinks. Phoenix Nights is a comedy of errors, of human endeavour on the smallest scale. Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory time and time again, Brian and Jerry bicker and bluff their way through the darkest days in the history of the working men's club.Read Less
