£3 Work In Progress

Four Great Comedians For Three Tiny Pounds

Published on February 2nd 2009.

£3 Work In Progress

Humour is notoriously subjective, but if only one person in the audience is laughing, the 'they just don't get it' argument falls flat. At this 'Work in Progress' night at the Frog and Bucket, four comedians will road-test their new material to establish whether it’s funny or not, ahead of their appearances at Edinburgh Festival in the summer.

The comedians performing includeSteve Shanyaski, David Longley, Michael J Dolan and Mick Ferry... and they'll all welcome your constructive criticism. Presumably a deathly silence is the worst feedback they can get, though we doubt that comics of this calibre will be struggling to raise a laugh.

Tickets for the night are only £3, which is cheap even if it is work in progress. And £1 from each ticket will be donated to Christie Hospital so you can hardly resent spending the cash.

'Work in Progress' will take place on Sunday 24 MaySteve Shanyaski, David Longley, Michael J Dolan and Mick Ferry.... Doors open at 7.30pm, show starts at 8.15pm. Frog and Bucket, 102 Oldham Street.
