Danny McLoughlin | Tue 28 Mar | The Pub/Zoo | 7.30pm | £5/3
It’s the first show since XS Malarkey was once more crowned best comedy club in the North by comedy new website chortle.co.uk and again prove why they are the most decorated comedy night in the city. Stand up comedian and trainer enthusiast Danny McLoughlin headlines another top night at The Pub/Zoo with support from Ed Patrick and Richard Soames, plus the ever steady hand of Toby Hadoke guiding you through proceedings. Believe the hype.

Barbara Nice | Thu 30 Mar | The Klondyke Club | 7.30pm | £6
Katie Mulgrew’s new night in Levenshulme has been star line up after star line up and their procurement of Stockport’s favourite auntie in Barbara Nice is no exception. As well as the energetic musings of the woman with the funnest hand bag in comedy there’ll be stand up from Mark Nelson, who tyou may recognize from his time playing the straight man to his 3 year old daughter for BBCThree. With Mulgrew as master of ceremonies you’ve got the loveliest night of comedy the suburbs has seen in a long time.

Sara Pascoe | Fri 31 Mar | The Lowry | 8pm | £15.50
Currently Pascoe is the only comedian who’s show at Manchester International Festival show has sold out, and there are precious few tickets available for this night at The Lowry. Ostensibly a book tour of her second offering ‘Animal’ the stand up dissects the politics behind sexuality with an illuminating show that also happens to be bloody hilarious. If you can get tickets then make sure you go.

Group Therapy | Sat 1 Apr | Gorilla | £8/10/12
Though they often draw the biggest names on the world comedy scene, Group Therapy are also keen to promote some lesser known quantities that are about to become the biggest names on the world comedy scene. This month they welcome London based New Yorker Desiree Burch as headliner, plus support Turtle Comedy head honcho Stuart Laws and terrifying honest Jess Fostekew, both of whom are Edinburgh Fringe favourites. There are a few early bird tickets left too at just £8 which need snapping up.
