England vs Portugal + Pie + Beer = Happiness!

England vs Portugal + Pie + Beer = Happiness!
call: 08705 932932 for tickets

Yes, the original Manchester Confidential Pie Club reconvenes at The Comedy Store this Saturday, doors opening at 2.00pm for England vs Portugal.

Here is John Locke, DJ and Marketing Maestro of The Comedy Store’s sales pitch:

“The Store will show the game on our BIG screen in the Long bar, on the BIG screen in our large and comfortable theatre and on our BIG screen in the Helter Skelter bar as well as on TV's throughout the venue, we will also be piping it throughout, even on the sound system in the loo - so you won't miss a bit of the action no matter where you are!”

Here is Gordo’s Pitch:

The pies are supplied, home made this time, by Manna from Heaven; the gaffer Rakhi was appalled at the ones we gave out last time, so she is personally baking 150 for us. Mushroom and Tarragon, Arabian Chickpea, Steak and Kidney, Steak and Ale and finally, Chicken. Believe Gordo, Rakhi can’t half cook a pie.

Next up is John Lord, from John Lord and Son with another 150. He brought some in for us to try this lunchtime. Pork, Steak and Kidney and Meat. Oh my god. They were still warm, the pastry all crispy and light and the filling. Oh dear me, the filling. Just wait till you try them, we had to twist his arm to get 150 of the buggers out of him. Gordo has had to promise to go into the Comedy Store and oversee the cooking himself to ensure you get them spot on.


pie in the sky?

The deal is this. We are working our socks off on our day off not just for fun, but for our favourite therapy for children charity, Nordoff-Robbins; since starting to support the charity, we have been able to secure three full time therapists here in the North West. This stops our traumatised kids having to be bussed down to London for treatment. Every little helps, so we are charging £5.00 on the door, there will be a raffle, so try and bring a fist full of coins for that. In return, you guys get free pies and a beer! How cool is that?!

Tickets can be bought in advance by calling 08705 932932, there is a booking fee with this one, or you can call in the box office at The Comedy Store, which is of course on Deansgate Locks, click here for full information on the club. Finally, on the day on the door.

See you there!
Gordo
