Comedy Skills for Presenting at Google Digital Garage
For our first pick of free things to do in Manchester this week, we’ve got this unique taster session at the Google Digital Garage on King Street. John Cooper – perhaps better known as his stage character Danny Pensive – is a comedian and improviser with years of experience, and he brings this to bear in a course that aims to furnish you with lecture and presentation skills. John shows how simple stagecraft and line-delivery techniques can bring your public speaking to life. This is a must-attend for anyone who’s ever fallen flat in a meeting.
Mon 13 Aug, Google Digital Garage, 39 King Street, Manchester, M2 7AT. 5pm -6.30pm, www.eventbrite.co.uk
An Uncomfortable Evening at Fuel Café Bar (pictured)
On Monday night, Withington’s Fuel Café Bar hosts An Uncomfortable Evening, a self-consciously weird music night. The popular vegetarian café and watering hole welcomes three bands into its Twin Peaks-inspired gig room: Melodic weirdo pop from Cynthia’s Periscope, Welsh lo-fi electronica courtesy of New Fever, and local purveyors of impenetrable patchwork music whathappenedonthatisland.
