Gary Delaney: There’s Something About Gary – The Lowry, Salford

Gary Delaney

Reviewer: Matt Forrest If I had a pound for every punch-line Gary Delaney delivered tonight, I could retire a very wealthy man and see out my days in the South of France, well probably not that many but I’d be a wealthy man indeed. Delaney is a good old fashioned gag man, there's no meandering or convoluted stories, just jokes ...

Stephen K Amos :The Laughter Master – The Lowry, Salford

Stephen K Amos

Reviewer: Dave Cunningham Few things are more irritating than an unexpected support act being added to the bill. Peter Brush, however, is a refreshing surprise. He has a laid back, almost hesitant, delivery and material with bright contemporary references and hints of darkness. You couldn't call Stephen K. Amos laid back but then the title of the show,The Laughter Master,proves ...

Reviewer: Matt Forrest During the mid-January malaise, we all could do with a bit of a moan as most of us will have already broke our new year resolutions and dry January will have firmly gone out of the window.

An Evening with Noel Fielding – The Lowry, Salford

Reviewer: Jo Beggs From 2004 to 2007, Noel Fielding’s off-beat humour delighted fans of The Mighty Boosh. In the style of Reeve and Mortimer, but perhaps with an even big dose of the surreal, Fielding and co-writer Julian Barratt created a comedy TV show that pushed the boundaries, quickly achieving cult status. The show was, it has to be said, ...

Josh Widdicombe: What Do I Do Now –The Lowry, Salford

Josh Widdicombe

Reviewer: Matt Forrest It’s been a very good year for Josh Widdicombe with appearances on Have I Got News for You, and several slots on Mock the Week. Countless more radio and TV appearances, and even his own sitcom: Josh, on BBC 3, you would think Widdicombe would have something to smile about, well think again. It seems the trappings ...

Jasper Carrott and Alistair McGowan – The Lowry, Salford

Jasper Carrott and Alistair McGowan

Reviewer: Matt Yeoman Anybody who sees this show would be forgiven for thinking the cast is huge – with the talents of Alistair McGowan in the mix it is no surprise that anyone would think that this is a show of 100 voices. With Jasper Carrott performing in the same show, they might also be forgiven for feeling 20-30 years ...
