Sneak | Mon 23 Apr | The Peer Hat | 8pm | FREE
James Meehan, Amy Gledhill and Jack Evans invite you for a sneak peek at their new shows this St George’s Day for the low, low price of nowt. Meehan’s latest hour explores identity via agorophobia and is the follow up to his critically acclaimed Edinburgh show ‘As If I Hadn’t Slept’, Gledhill will be shedding the hot dog costume she dons for her sketch duo The Delightful Sausage with her debut work in progress show ‘Trawl’, whilst Evans turns his twisted eye to the world of work and the machinations that control us everyday, no doubt with hilarious consequences.

Mike Newall | Tue 24 Apr | The Bread Shed | 7.30pm | £5/3
After a recent spate of alternative comics from London as headliners XS Malarkey are shining their spotlight on someone a little closer to home with Mike Newall coming to the mic this Tuesday. Riding the crest of a wave after appearing in Chris Washington’s viral mechanics video alongside the aforementioned James Meehan, Newall brings his off beat surreal humour to The Bread Shed stage with a wonderfully dry presence.

Sluice | Sun 29 Apr | The Castle Hotel | 6.15pm | PWYW
As Edinburgh preview season gets into full swing there’s an early contender for best line up of shows in the country with four taking place in a row this Sunday at The Castle Hotel on Oldham Street. First up is Edinburgh comedy award nominee in 2017 Jordan Brookes with his follow up show ‘Wait Till The Guys Hear About This’, then it’s Sean Morley’s latest genre bending audience manipulation-athon ‘I Apologise For My Recent Behaviour’. This will then be followed by Manchester Wire favourites Jayne Edwards who fleshes out the already pretty bulky Top Bodybuilder Brian into a full show and Foxdog Studios who will once again dazzle the crowd with their interactive Robot Chef.
