Gabriel Ebulue at XS Malarkey | Tue 24 Oct | 7.30pm | £6/3

Whisper it quietly but this may be the last time you see Toby Hadoke and the gang at HOME before they move to their new ‘home’ of 53Two for good! It’s been quite the nomadic summer for Manchester’s most nomadic comedy night, but such is the pull and excellence of XS that they’ve packed them in wherever they go with top headliners and stellar shows. This last hurrah at HOME will be headlined by comedian Gabriel Ebulue for the first time. The hits keep coming no matter where they are.

Fierce Bar was a key venue for the recent Women In Comedy Festival and further cements its place as a voice for the under-represented in the industry with this show that features the talent of Melina Fiol, Annabell Devey, Kim Smith and more for a Halloween special.
