The Best in Stand Up: Danny McLoughlin, Jo Caulfield, Mick Ferry, Alun Cochrane, Justin Moorhouse
Five world class comedians on one stage!
Please visit thecomedystore.co.uk/manchester/whats-on for more information.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
With an amiable, confident stage presence and a well written set, Danny delivers material with more than just an immediate pay-off line, preferring to take the joke one or two steps further.
Confident enough to take a risk on stage he does so not to the detriment of the audience, keeping them laughing along or hanging on every word.
A bright future surely awaits.
'McLoughlin's main weapon is his audacity: he's so bold he can recite an advertising jingle and still get plenty of laughs' (Chortle).
Danny McLoughlin tour dates
Graham Norton's writer and warm-up artiste, co-founder of the 'Hampstead Clinic' comedy club. She is regular performer at the Comedy Store and on The Stand Up Show. Jo is a regular guest on both Mock The Week and Have I Got News For You. Other TV appearances include The John Bishop Show, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Saturday Night Live, The Stand Up Show.
Dubbed 'funniest woman in Britain', she lives up to the title with razor-sharp wit, acerbic observations and scandalous one-liners, all excellently written and impeccably delivered.
'Cut-throat wit and a razor-sharp tongue...Sharp-witted, urban comedy that goes down a treat. Like a sociology textbook, but with jokes' (The Times).
'Incapable of doing a bad show, so sharp is her tongue and so in tandem is it with her mischievous mind' (The Scotsman).
'Feisty, funny and wonderfully bitchy... one of the finest female comics' (The Observer).
Jo Caulfield tour dates
Popular circuit comedian and regular compere for several comedy nights. He is probably best known for his Comedy Store improvisations, but after starting his professional career as a support act for Peter Kay he was soon selling out his own one-man shows, and things look like they are only going to get better for Derker's most famous son.
On TV Mick has starred in BBC1`s Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow as well as Comedy Blue and The Comedy Store (both Comedy Central). He made his big screen debut in 2009 in Ken Loach’s Looking For Eric – a hit feature film at the Cannes film festival where it was nominated for the prestigious Palm D’Or. A prolific comic, he is a writer on John Bishop’s Britain (BBC1) and has helped make the show a ratings success.
