I won’t lie, I hadn't heard of Bridget Christie until yesterday, I just really love to see funny women doing their thing. I can’t help but think my life is now a little richer after having seen her on stage. What a truly hilarious, intelligent and all-round likeable woman.
Despite reading the 'blurb' I went to watch Tony Law completely unaware of what to expect. My decision to watch this show was based on it's catchy title: Tony Law: A law Undo his elf and I liked the thought of watching some 'nonsense nirvana' as described by the 'blurb'. Well Tony Law is certainly a law unto his self!

Tom Allen and Suzi Ruffell took the stage together, welcoming the audience and they both seemed genuinely pleased, if not a little relieved, that Studio 1 was full. They explained that it was either first tour together and they were both going to do their Edinburgh 2016 shows. They seemed really relaxed with each other and engaged the audience - we learned later that they were very good friends.
It’s not easy making fun of the ridiculous – however the political knowledge, experience and insight which satirical impressionist Rory Bremner has makes him more than qualified to make Trump, Boris and Brexit the meat of his new tour, Partly Political.
The Manchester comedy club in my opinion is definitely one of the best nights out in Manchester and at £5 a ticket (£2 students/£3 concession) you definitely won’t find better value for money. Ever second and the last Sunday of the month Toby Hadoke presents ‘New Stuff’ an excellent showcase where established comedians perform all new, never been seen or heard before material to gauge whether their new material is worthy of putting into their regular sets.
