Alfie Brown | The Pub/Zoo | Tue 6 Nov | 7.30pm | £5/3
One of a number of fierce young comedians currently setting the circuit alight with smart and incisive takedowns of modern society and its crass obsessions, Alfie Brown is on the cusp of a huge breakthrough. Bill Hicks with a vape pen, Brown is sometimes sanctimonious but never unaware of his own part in the world at large making his observations necessary, poignant and very funny.
Murder Inc | The Ape & Apple | Wed 7 Nov | 7.30pm | £5
Murder Inc take the art of killing very seriously and offer a democrat manner in which they decide how someone might be murdered. This month’s installment Norse mythology just beat out the biscuit factory so if you like your improvisational comedy with a side of certain death and your deities as mischievous as Loki then this should be the night for you. Also if you like your pizza for free then this is definitely the night for you.
Jen Brister | The Lowry | Sun 11 Nov | 8pm | £12/10
Jen Brister has appeared on Live at the Apollo, supported Frankie Boyle, Roisin Conaty and Kerry Godliman and performed six solo shows and yet she still believes life is ‘Meaningless’. Her new show of that name is intent on not discovering the meaning of life but just some kind of meaning in anything through her furious and hilarious diatribes.
