Take the train to … The Manchester Comedy Festival

Posted on

The Manchester Comedy Festival is just around the corner, so gear up and take the train to Manchester for a few laughs with our top three picks for must-see comedy at this year’s festival.

Starting on 17 October, the Manchester Comedy Festival is descending on the city with over 200 shows in 30 live venues all over Greater Manchester.

This year’s line-up includes comedy greats Rob Brydon and Richard Herring, along with a host of other great performers who will be sure to give even the toughest critics a giggle.

You can catch everything from stand-up to magic tricks and psychic game shows, and the diverse program means there’s something on for everyone whether you’re a fan of the bizarre or the classic.

Check out our top 3 must-see events:

• Legally Blonde: The Musical
The popular Hollywood-blockbuster has been reinvented as the feel-good musical comedy of the year. Watch Elle Woods sing and dance her way through Harvard Law School, and don’t be surprised if you find you’re tapping along to the beat.

• An Evening With Rob Brydon
Multi-award-winning actor, writer, presenter and all around funny-man, Rob Brydon is descending into Manchester for one night only and talking and sharing the hilarious highs and lows from his childhood and his path to becoming the voice of some of the best-loved UK brands in his new memoir Small Man in A Book.

• Stephen Merchant: Hello Ladies…
Comedian and co-creating mastermind behind the hit TV series The Office, Stephen Merchant has more than just the most downloaded Internet show of all time under his belt. Watch as he stops in Manchester on his first ever stand-up tour and get ready to roar with laughter as he tells stories of why the opposite sex finds him all too easy to resist.
