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.

In appearance he resembles the clichéd absent-minded professor with waistcoat, bowtie and checked pants; the only thing missing is the ...

Through the ...

It’s this nominated show that Acaster brings to The Lowry. ...

Alfie Moore: Naked Stun – The Lowry, Salford

Reviewer: Matt Forrest The TV schedules are always crammed full with ‘cop’ dramas or people getting bumped off in middle England, so it makes a refreshing change for the police genre to make its way into the stand up domain in the guise of Sergeant Alfie Moore, who opens his case book and brings his Naked Stun to The Lowry. ...

Lee Nelson: Suited and Booted –The Lowry, Salford

Reviewer: Matt Forrest It’s been a busy summer for comedian Simon Brodkin. In July in the guise of Jason Bent, he gate-crashed a press conference held by FIFA president Sepp Blatter, showering him with $600 in a bid to bring the 2026 FIFA World Cup to North Korea. The sight of Blatter flustered with dollar bills cascading over him, may ...
