Paddy Young and Tamsyn Kelly bring tour shows this week whilst Roast Battle has its first outing at The Frog & Bucket.

Roast Battle at The Frog & Bucket | Tue 12 Mar | 7pm | £10

After a successful run at The Seven Oaks, Jordan Ducharme and Michael Mannion’s Mancunian Roast Battles make a move to larger surrounds as they take on The Frog & Bucket. The bigger venue will surely lead to sicker burns as the city’s best comedians take each other on in a battle of wits and what’s acceptable. This first set of bouts at the Frog will feature the likes of Alfie Carter, Dean Coughlin, Justina Seselkaite and a championship battle between Jack Wood and Cameron Jones which is sure to be brutal.

Tamsyn Kelly at GRUB | Fri 15 Mar | 7.30pm | £12

Tamsyn Kelly brings her critically acclaimed show Crying In TK Maxx to GRUB this weekend for a tale of estranged fathers, high street shops and Mr Blobby. Directed by Amy Gledhill, the show was a hit at the Edinburgh Fringe and this will be a first ever tour for the Cornish comic, and the buzz indicates it won’t be the last and certainly not in as modest a location as this Friday.

Paddy Young at Cultplex | Sun 17 Mar | 7pm | £15

Celebrate St Patrick’s Day with his namesake Paddy Young this Sunday evening as he brings his own debut tour to Cultplex. ‘Hungry, Horny, Scared’ garnered Young the Best Newcomer nod at last year’s Fringe and he recently won the same accolade at last week’s Chortle Awards. Famed for his online content created with Ed Night and solo, Young is a phenomenal force on stage boasting the confidence of an old pro in spite of his newcomer status.
