The Comedy Store Manchester


The Comedy Store Manchester is the hub of live stand up comedy in Manchester. The venue brand was made famous by the original branch The Comedy Store London before moving up North in 2000. Acts such as Paul Merton, Julian Clary and Tim Clark celebrated the opening and now the venue has extremely popular regular nights including The Comedy Store's famous "King Gong Show" on the first Sunday of every month. Every Thursday the club hosts stand up Thursday, with four acts performing making it a great pre-weekend evening out. On Fridays and Saturdays there are three shows (8pm Fridays, 7pm & 9:30pm on Saturdays) showcasing five world class comedians. To avoid disappointment, booking is required as these weekend shows sell out!

Add a two course meal to your show ticket for just £10 on Thursday and £14 on weekends in The Comedy Stores restaurant. The a la carte menu includes a simple but strong selection of starters and mains including steak and ale pies, fish cakes, and a "catch of the day". Less formal dining is available at the bar, with Pizza, Pasta, Burgers and sharing options and bar snacks available.
