Start your week with the lovely inclusive surrounds of Gullivers’ snug little theatre and some Monday night Blizzard Comedy. This month’s instalment will be headlined by queen regent of the Manchester alternative scene Jain Edwards who is “Cursed with extreme likeability and suffering under the weight of being an absolute sweetheart”. Her words, and ne’er a truer one spoken.

Lucy Pearman at XS Malarkey | Tue 9 Apr | 7.30pm | £6/3

XS Malarkey continues its excellent run in the freshly refurbished 53Two Theatre this week with a headline set from Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Lucy Pearman. The lighthearted clown is full to the brim with charm, props and a love of the celestial.

Harriet Dyer at Side Street Comedy | Thu 11 Apr | 7pm | £8/10

Side Street Studio is not long into its life as a venue in the city but it’s certainly making a name for itself with its regular comedy night. This Thursday it will feature the meandering joys of Harriet Dyer with a support lineup that’s stacked with the best new comics currently working in the North, chief among them Frankie Monroe, who recently won the BBC New Comedy Award.
