The Worst Comedy Night In Salford | The Kings Arms, Salford | Tue 30 Jul | 8pm | FREE

XS Malarkey | Jabez Clegg | Tue 30 Jul | 8.30pm | £5/£3

O’Shea & O’Gaukroger (pictured) | The Kings Arms, Salford | Wed 31 Jul | 9pm | £6

Comedy Much? | Frog & Bucket | Sun 4 Aug | 7pm | £10/£7
A glut of comedians from Comedy Central and MTV descend upon Oldham Street’s favourite comedy club. The brilliantly honest Annette Fagon, white boi comic Jamie Howard, and Felix Dexter of The Real McCoy fame (if anyone’s old enough to remember that?) all appear.
