Picture the scene: a man with rouged cheeks and stripy pinny runs about the room worrying the audience with offal he’s purchased from the butchers the day before. Sadly Slaughterhouse Live don’t perform the Ronnie Buttons and his Dancing Giblets skit any more – but what they do perform is guaranteed to be surreal and ludicrous in equal measure. The foursome have been creating visceral sketches and oddball characters for over a decade and for much of that time have held a residency at The Comedy Store. Their show this month promises shenanigans of an Olympic nature including the The World’s Strongest Vegan and the ‘oft overlooked’ Paralytic Olympics. Plus appearances from obsessive compulsive rock tribute act OC/DC, wrinkled stockinged storyteller Beryl Haines and espionage’s sleepiest agent Yawn Connery.

Sun 22 Jul, The Comedy Store, Deansgate Locks, Whitworth Street, Tel: 0161 839 9595, 7.30pm, £8, www.thecomedystore.co.uk
