Lauren Pattison is at Didsbury Comedy Club, Evaldas Karosas chats to hot people and Jokes at The Oaks continues to reign as the best midweek comedy night.

Jokes at The Oaks at Seven Oaks | Wed 3 May | 8pm | FREE

Dan Tiernan and Jordan Ducharme’s midweek open mic night continues to be one of the hidden gems of the Manchester comedy scene. The rotating hosts of Dan and Jordan are themselves two of the city’s best comedians and the acts they attract are fresh, funny and seemingly endless. Always packed and a great night made special by its hosts, you can see the future of Northern stand-up and see that it’s in very capable hands every Wednesday.

Evaldas Karosas at Comedy For Hot People | Thu 4 May | 7pm | From £3.96

Lithuanian stand-up Evaldas Karosas preaches to the Hot People of The Fitzgerald this Thursday evening. Karosas built up a great following in his adoptive home of Manchester before heading for the bright lights of London. So this serves as a sort of homecoming paired with hosting duties of Michael Mannion and Katie Green in support. Hot.

Lauren Pattison at Didsbury Comedy Centre | Sun 7 May | 7.45pm | £9.75-£12

Close at the week with a quite frankly ludicrous lineup at Didsbury Comedy Centre double headlined by two of the hottest young comics about in Dan Tiernan and Lauren Pattison. If you can’t make Tiernan’s weekly night at The Oaks on Wednesday then do catch this ball of manic energy as soon as you can. Pattison was nominated as Best Newcomer at the 2017 and has since made a string of TV appearances and gone from strength to strength. The night will be MCed by Stephen Bailey who is always nothing short of an absolute delight.
