Stephen K Amos is The Spokesman – The Studio, Bradford

Writer: Stephen K Amos Reviewer: Ruth Jepson Stephen K Amos is a really nice bloke. Sheepishly trotting into the bar of The Studio half an hour late he was going to have to treat the audience when he finally got on stage. So what did he give them? An extra half hour of improvised material by being his own warm ...

David Baddiel: Fame (Not the Musical) – The Lowry, Salford

Reviewer: Seb Farrell Fame, as a society we’re fixated by it, we spend millions of pounds on inane celebrity gossip magazines, indulge hours of our time watching overly emotional youngsters desperately pursuing it and now have the capacity to follow our favourite celebrities on social media sites such as twitter, which is under the microscope on more than one occasion ...

Mike Wozniak: Take The Hit – The Lowry, Salford

Reviewer: Luke Walker Mike Wozniak has a nemesis. She interrupts conversations with a monkey noise only to tell a dull anecdote. It is, of course – as has always been in the comedy epoch – his mother-in-law. But, much worse, she has moved into the family home. Mike Wozniak really has taken the hit and this is the inspiration behind ...

Hal Cruttenden: The Tough Luvvie Tour – Lowry, Salford

Reviewer: Jo Beggs Hal Cruttenden can’t quite leave behind his classical training. Despite years on the stand-up circuit, he still exhibits all the traits of a thesp and is just as comfortable treading the boards as he is clinging on to a microphone stand in a comedy club.

As The Lowry is still home to two large scale theatre shows in their main houses, Noah plays the smaller studio space – something he ...

The Comedy Network: November – The Lowry, Salford

Reviewer: Jo Beggs [Rating:3.5] The Lowry’s ‘catch them before they’re famous’ comedy night is proving to be a pretty successful addition to Manchester’s comedy scene. Given its distinctly unwelcoming Sunday evening time slot and a rather sterile studio venue that’s far from comedy friendly, Comedy Network is forging a path for itself amid the plethora of stand up gigs in ...

Simon Munnery: Fylm – The Lowry, Salford

Reviewer: Tracey Lowe [rating:4.5] Simon Munnery has celebrated a long career in comedy, working with the likes of Stewart Lee, Steve Coogan, Kevin Eldon and Richard Herring to name but a few. A staple performer at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, he’s never really broken into the mainstream, despite having both a TV and radio series in the late 90s/early 00s. ...

What Would Beyonce Do? – The Lowry, Salford

Reviewer: Helen Jones [rating:3.5] Luisa Omielan has an obsession with Beyonce. But while she is obviously a fan of both the woman and her music, her one-woman comedy show is more than a slavish dedication to the international star. Having graduated with a first class degree from Salford University, Miss Omielan found that the world wasn’t offering her the instant ...
