Manchester Comedy Clubs

There's always plenty to laugh at in Manchester… and we don't just mean the weather. Those looking for fun things to do in the Manchester should look no further than the city's comedy clubs, which range in size from large comedy venues hosting international acts, to more relaxed nights in Manchester bars. Either way, you'll have a cracking night, so whether you want a date night with a twist, or something a little different on your night out, Manchester's comedy clubs can provide.

A relative newcomer to the city's comedy scene, 'Group Therapy' takes place at Gorilla on the last Saturday of the month and sees some of the biggest names on the circuit drop by to say funny things. Entry will set you back just a tenner, and uniquely for a weekend comedy club, large single sex parties are banned - so if you're seeking somewhere for a stag or hen party in Manchester, you won't find it here.  Book here for your night at Gorilla!
