After the success of the Kyle Kinane gig at The Pub/Zoo in early January, Group Therapy are again bringing one of the top US comedians you may never have heard of to Manchester, this time in the guise of Nick Thune. The Seattle comic looks like a an even more handsome Adam Scott, throws out one liners like Mitch Hedberg or Demetri Martin and yet he’s still a relative unknown on these shores. If you haven’t heard of him, then Group Therapy’s track record of booking only the crème de la crème of comics from across the globe should give you an indication of the caliber of act Thune is. Though if you needed more convincing of their knowledge of the best stand ups around then you must look at their recent win at the City Life Awards for Best Comedy Club. Thune will have finished a five night run at the Soho Theatre before heading North for his only UK gig outside of the capital, so make sure you get to Group Therapy to catch your new favourite American comic.
