Hal Cruttenden : Straight out of Cruttenden – The Lowry, Salford

Reviewer: Dave Cunningham Support Act Will Duggan tears through his autobiographical / observational material at a breathless pace as if to squeeze in as much as possible into the limited time slot. If the intensity of his interaction with the audience nudges towards hectoring at least it sets the mood for the main Act. As one might expect from the ...

Rob Newman: The Brain Show – The Lowry, Salford

Reviewer: Dave Cunningham You can be sure of one thing with a Rob Newman gig... there won’t be any jokes about dicks. Newman takes an intellectual approach and tonight he is concerned about another organ of the body: the brain. In appearance he resembles the clichéd absent-minded professor with waistcoat, bowtie and checked pants; the only thing missing is the ...

Sean Kelly – The Lowry, Salford

Reviewer: Jo Beggs Sean Kelly seems to have taken over from Jerry Springer as the new king of guilty pleasure TV. Who knew that blind auctions in grubby storage units would make for such compelling TV? But Storage Hunters hasn’t just taken the US and UK by storm, it’s been syndicated around the world. Perhaps we’ve grown weary of all ...

Patrick Kielty: Help – The Lowry, Salford

Reviewer: Lauren Maughan In his come-back stand up tour Patrick Kielty is asking us all for help. And his problem is, he’s happy. He’s a newlywed with the woman he met as a friend 10 years ago, with a baby on the way – it’s all fallen into place. But he’s worried "it’ll all go tits up". And that’s where ...

Andy Hamilton: Change Management – The Lowry, Salford

Reviewer: Jo Beggs From Drop The Dead Donkey to Outnumbered, Have I Got News For You to Old Harry’s Game, Writer and Comedian Andy Hamilton’s career has hardly faltered in the past forty years. There’s a sizable number of Radio 4 listeners in The Lowry for the Salford stop on Hamilton’s Change Management tour. You could probably guess it even ...

Milton Jones and The Temple of Daft – The Lowry, Salford

Reviewer: Lauren Maughan Milton Jones is a man famous for his one-liners. And if you like a good pun, then this show is for you. It’s jam-packed with a few classics you’ll have heard before, along with some new gags that are comedy genius. Not your average stand-up show, The Temple of Daft is Indiana Jones meets comedy. Through the ...

Joe Lycett – The Lowry, Salford

Reviewer: Matt Forrest Instantly there is an amiable charm to Joe Lycett, which is a good job, as some of the material is very close to the bone. With a delivery closely resembling a smiling assassin, you don’t know whether to laugh or feel sorry for the targets of Lycett’s caustic wit. Appearances on 8 Out of 10 Cats Does ...

Nina Conti: In Your Face – The Lowry, Salford

Reviewer: Matt Yeoman Long gone are the days of the “traditional” ventriloquist acts with a single puppet being used as an excuse for exposition of the inner-ego of a comedian. We are now, partly thanks to Nina Conti, in an age where ventriloquism is intelligent, creative, sexy and refreshed. For those who don’t know anything about Conti, she has been ...
