Suspiciously Cheap | New Adelphi Theatre | Mon 18 Mar | 7.30pm | £3/5
Gein’s Family Giftshop bring their Suspiciously Cheap Comedy night to the University where they met, as Salford’s New Adelphi Theatre plays host to some of the best comedians in the country. A fiver gets you two time Edinburgh Comedy Award winner John Kearns, BBC New Comedy Award winner Yuriko Kotani, countless new act award-winner Sunil Patel and host of the What Women Want podcast Amy Annette. Plus Gein’s and their sketchy pals Goose will be trying out some new gold, all held together by the besequinned Kiri Pritchard-McLean. Five pounds. Mad.
Foxdog Studios | The Lowry | Thu 21 Mar | 8pm | £10/12
IT rock ‘n’ roll comedy outfit Foxdog Studios bring their latest show ‘Robot Chef’ after a sell out run at the Edinburgh Fringe. Audience participation is the name of the game and computer wizards Foxdog harness the power of the crowd’s smart phones in order to cook themselves dinner via all manner of sausage cannons and bean delivery systems. One of, if not the only comedy shows where you’re encouraged to be on your phone throughout, and tremendous fun for it.
Sean Morley | Three Minute Theatre | Sat 23 Mar | 7.30pm | £4/5/6
Another one of the most talked about shows from last year’s Edinburgh Fringe, Sean Morley brings his contritional show ‘I apologise for my recent behaviour’ to the Three Minute Theatre. The shabby and much loved venue at the bottom of Affleck’s Palace is the perfect setting for Morley’s absurd toying with the art of stand-up. A unique performer who must be close to starting his own cult has continued his shaking of the form with his ticket pricing differing depending on how keen you are to see the show. If you know anything about Morley, you’ll happily shell out the top price.
