Opening Event

Festival Director Kev Rook said: “Manchester doesn’t currently have an ‘open to all’ comedy festival, which is a travesty with our comedic heritage. We are looking to fill the void with a festival that we hope will be a bit special, seeing big names and rising stars in much smaller venues, but with huge atmospheres!”

The opening event takes place on Friday 24th April at The Woodstock Arms, Barlow Moor Road, featuring Robin Ince and Boothy Graffoe.  A rare chance to see two legends of comedy perform solo shows on one amazing night!
