Rachel Fairburn brings some of her funny pals to the Frog and there are tour shows from Ray Bradshaw and Sikisa taking over Manchester this week.

Sikisa at GRUB | Thu 25 Apr | 7.30pm | £15

Star of Live at The Apollo and the Jonathan Ross Comedy Club Sikisa is bringing her second tour show to Manchester this Thursday. A rising star who’s already hit several career milestones opens up with her most honest show to date about a recent diagnosis and an interest in emo music. Always outrageous and sidesplitting this is a personal show that’s sure to please a crowd.

Rachel Fairburn returns to her homeland for a special new material show with some of her favourite local acts. She’ll be joined by Tom Lawrinson, Phil Pagett, Molly McGuinness, Alex Stringer and Justin Moorhouse for an early afternoon gig that’ll have you home in time for tea (or for the gig listed below). Rachel’s new character show is an absolute joy and all the acts listed are terrific so this is more than worth your time and more than convenient.
