The Confidential Comedy Choice

Mon 10
Beat the Frog @ The Frog and Bucket (102 Oldham Street, City. 0161 236 9805 www.frogandbucket.com free)
The cruelly funny amateur night where the acts can be removed from the stage by the audience.

Thu 13
Jason Cook @ Melville Merriment (The Melville, Barton Road, Stretford. 0161 866 8448 £5)
Recently returned from a very successful run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe with his debut solo show My Confessions, which garnered much praise from the critics.

Steve Royle @ The Lowry (Pier 8, Salford Quays. 08707 875780 www.thelowry.com £10)
Royle was better known for standing in the shadow of famous comics as their warm up act but now he’s ‘Supporting Himself’ in this solo show.

Fri 14
Martin Bigpig @ The Frog and Bucket (102 Oldham Street, City. 0161 236 9805 www.frogandbucket.com from £6)
The fearsome Northern Irish comic used to wield machetes and fire guns with his nipple but these days he takes to the stage unadorned but for the sharpness of his tongue.

Sat 15
Paul Tonkinson @ The Comedy Store (Arches 3-4, Deansgate Locks, Whitworth Street West, City. 0161 839 9595 www.thecomedystore.co.uk £16)Former Xfm breakfast show presenter and master gurner amuses with his cartoon-like performance.

Something of a legend on the circuit, Cognito is infamous for his uncompromising and controversial style, which is largely responsible for keeping him off the telly.

Tue 18
Space Cadets @ TV21 (10 Thomas Street, City. 0161 839 5021www.tv21uk.net £5)
Ian Cognito and Tony Burgess perform headline sets plus some wannabe Stargazers strut their stuff.

Rhys Darby @ The Comedy Store (Arches 3-4, Deansgate Locks, Whitworth Street West, City. 0161 839 9595 www.thecomedystore.co.uk from £5)The man of a thousand funny noises, Darby can do impressions of most things from coy mermaids to armed warfare.

Fri 21
Chris McCausland @ The Frog and Bucket (102 Oldham Street, City. 0161 236 9805 www.frogandbucket.com from £6)
Blind comic McCausland jokes of the irony of his observational humour.

Sat 22
Hal Cruttenden @ The Comedy Store (Arches 3-4, Deansgate Locks, Whitworth Street West, City. 0161 839 9595 www.thecomedystore.co.uk £16)Self deprecating humour from the self confessed quite content and comfortably off, comic.

Sun 23

Do we really need to say anymore? The legendary Scot who consistently comes top of the ‘Best Comedian in the last Millennium’ polls.
