The food was great and plenty. The seat rather small. The comedy very sweary... and the jokes towards Germans not funny.... should of made sure if Germans were in the house.... all in all the night was fun, but the comedians swore way too much...

Good venue, comedians funny, security tell you off for laughing too loud? They watch over the audience and if your are unlucky to have one next to you they make you feel uncomfortable! Constantly tell you to be quiet??? Wouldn’t recommend as too intimidating

The whole area was buzzing around the comedy store and we found it difficult to get in anywhere for something to eat, so we went in and traded our tickets for a wrist band and ordered food in the venue. The bar area was very...More

You can enter the theatre at least at 9.00 pm. They have a bar in the foyer so you can have a drink before entering the auditorium and you can take your drinks inside. Be prepared for a good laugh!!

I would suggest taxi as it’s only a 5minute drive from macdonald hotel, leave handy enough though as Manchester is becoming a lot like London with the peak hour traffic. Enjoy
