The Comedy Store, Manchester

The Comedy StoreBooking our minibus to take you on a night out then why not visit The Comedy Store it is located within the trendy Deansgate Locks development and has been entertaining Manchester since September 2000. It really is a unique venue, comprising of a 500 seat theatre styled auditorium, dining area, large bar and VIP room taking up two converted railway arches in a development that cost £14m. The Store is the perfect way to start an evening out or can be enjoyed as a night out in its own right – once the night’s performance has finished there is music until the early hours. Stag and hen parties are welcome and it’s something a little different to just hitting the clubs and bars.

The venue combines first class shows starring the biggest names in the comedy business, with evenings specifically for the showcasing of new talent – where nervous hopefuls get to perform in front of a real audience. Different nights of the week play host to this array of different shows. Every Friday and Saturday evening (with two shows on a Saturday) sees the best in stand up as The Store plays host to five world class comedians. These shows are always a sell out and guarantee two hours of laughing until your sides hurt! Upcoming big names include Justin Moorhouse, Nathan Caton, Sean Meo, John Warburton, Gordon Southern, Dave Williams, Steve Shanyaski and Mick Ferry.

Does Not Just Have To Be For The Weekend

Thursday nights offer more of the same as three of the best in the comedy world take to the stage to perform extended sets; as well as hosting an open mic spot to an up and coming comedian. Sunday nights are dedicated to all new talent – with the first Sunday of each month playing host to the ‘King Gong’ night, where fresh new performers go up against the Comedy Store gong, all trying to get their five minutes of fame.
