20th October: Frisky and Mannish at The Lowry

20th October: Frisky and Mannish at The Lowry

Arriving late and being uneducated in what the Frisky and Mannish experience involved, I admit I lacked the necessary enthusiasm for the duo’s introductory round of audience participation that had already begun. Fighting the initial urge to run straight back out of the door, the show gathered momentum and we couldn’t help but pick up […]

18th October: Jimeoin, Lovely at The Comedy Store

To be able to start a show successfully with a string of bird walk impressions, including a chicken in a minefield, can only prepare the audience for a good 2 hours of comedy. Jimeoin is not only hilariously funny but also has the most inviting smile and a charming Irish accent. His comedy is not […]

Jimeoin aka Eyebrow Man

Jimeoin aka Eyebrow Man, lovely Irish chap who moved to the sunnier climes of Australia years ago, is coming to the Manchester Comedy Festival 2011 on 18th October and performing at The Comedy Store. At 1pm on 17th October I had a quick chat with him before he scarpered off for more interviews, about stand-up, […]
Frisky and Mannish

Frisky and Mannish

If you haven’t heard of/seen the Edinburgh Fringe Festival Force of comedy-cabaret sauciness, your ears have not lived. On 20th October Frisky and Mannish are making their way to our humble-land (Frisky’s home-town), for the Manchester Comedy Festival and performing at The Lowry. Their production, School of Pop, taught its audiences Tudor history using the […]
