Marcel Lucont | Tue 18 Sep | The Bread Shed | 7.30pm | £5/3
Anglo-European relationships are at an all time low so what more perfect a time than now to have a visit from pretentious, portentous French comic Marcel Lucont. Taking over XS Malarkey with a glass of merlot in one hand and a lit ciggie in the other Lucont is best placed to pick apart the nature of the British and the predicament the country currently finds itself in. Go see him before he’s not allowed back in after Brexit.

Punk in Drublic | Wed 19 Sep | Duclimer | 7pm | £5
More a poetry night than strictly comedy, there are still a couple of excellent sketch acts to point your eyes at in between the rhyming verses of this night in Chorlton’s Dulcimer. Rat Kings have been knocking around Liverpool’s alternative scene under various ridiculous pseudonyms for the past few years and are a bizarre multimedia treat. The Delightful Sausage are fresh back from another cracking Edinburgh Fringe where they garnered more 4 and 5 star reviews. You can read more about what’s on at Dulcimer this week here.

Kae Kurd | SW Manchester Cricket Club | Fri 21 Sep | 7.30pm | £7/10
Chorlton Chuckles comedy night celebrates their fifth birthday and they’ve landed one of the fastest rising stars on the UK scene to commemorate the occasion. Headline act Kae Kurd’s comedy presents beautifully crafted slick routines with confident cutting edge flair and has previously supported Dane Baptiste on his UK tour. They’ve also ensnared American comedians Matt Monroe, Morgan Rees and Sian Davies with regular MC Alex Perry there to make sure this is one five year old’s birthday party not to be missed.

Tanyalee Davis | Frog & Bucket | Sun 23 Sep | 7pm | £7.50/10
And last and by some means least we have the new show from diminutive stand up Tanyalee Davis ‘Actual Size’ which nicely rounds out your week of great comedy. Standing at just 3-foot 6-inches tall, Tanyalee more than makes up for her lack of size with a big personality and recently a political voice for the disenfranchised as she has been sharing her abominable treatment on a recent train journey via the hashtag #scootergirl.
