From split-second improv sketches and comedy-infused cabaret to playful, poignant journeys through LGBTQIA+ history and whip-smart  observations on the stigma of divorce, The Edge’s spring theatre schedule brings an all-embracing array of incredible shows to the heart of Chorlton.

That Sketch Show | Thu 27 Apr - Sat 29 Apr | 8pm | £15/£13

A firm favourite at The Edge, That Sketch Show returns with a comic feast and topical focus, featuring everything from one-liners to musical turns this April.

Celebrity Pop Quiz | Thu 11 May | 8pm | £15

With just eight tables of six available on both dates, The Edge’s wildly popular Celebrity Pop Quiz returns with a guest celebrity in both March and May, with all ticket profits going towards The Edge’s work with people experiencing or at risk of homelessness.

Tickle Your Fancy | Thu 20 Apr | 8pm | £13/£52 (table of 4)

Presented by Doolally, Chorlton’s ‘gem of a cabaret night’ Tickle Your Fancy offers a night of exciting turns and joyous pomp with comedy, music, spoken word and more on Thu 20 Apr.

Mum's The Word Comedy Club | Fri 21 Apr | 1pm | £12/£10 (under-18 months free)

Precision-engineered for parents and newborns – or any family members with a qualifying baby in tow – comedian and new mother Katie Mulgrew hosts two afternoons of adult-oriented comedy in a relaxed environment where feeding, changing and nursing is permitted and there’s no pressure to apologetically bundle screaming toddlers down the aisle.

eVULVAlution | Fri 21 Apr - Sat 22 Apr | 7.30pm | £15/£13

With the irresistible pitch of ‘a time-travelling prehistoric romp set in Hull’, Manchester’s favourite erotic fiction author Jenny Morgan returns from a pandemic hiatus an interactive journey through the ages complete with ‘Neanderthal orgies and local interest references.’
