Bringing you the very best in alternative comedy this triple headliner comedy night features Tony Law, Amy Vreeke, Jonny Pelham, and MC Jonathan Mayor.

THE COCOA BUTTER CLUB
Sat 24 Jul 20:00
£12 | £8
The award winning cabaret, that celebrates performers of colour, will be back in town, this July.
Following their (quite phenomenal) full house Manchester debut in 2019, we're promised a serving so generous, we'll be smelling of Cocoa Butter for days!
It's a spirited soiree, so expect burlesque, live music, erotic poetry, comedy, drag, dance and more, all wrapped in your favourite Neo-Soul, RnB, Jazz, Motown and Blues sounds.
This one’s for you! It's been a tough year; so trust the trailblazers of decolonising and moisturising cabaret to be a part of your super summer. We have so much to make up for!

JONNY WOO’S ALL STAR LATE NIGHT CABARET
Fri 30 Jul 21:00
£14 / £12
Double bill with Dusty Limits & Michael Roulston £24 / £20
Jonny Woo + Richard Thomas + Sooz Kempner + Kevin Davies
Jonny launches back into life post-lockdown with all his singing buddies in this very musical, silly, stunning and a little bit naughty cabaret.
Woo brings stars from his hit Brexit Musical show; Olivier award-winner Richard Thomas (composer & lyricist Jerry Springer The Opera) on piano; the amazing stand-up and singer Sooz Kempner, now notorious on social media for her impressions of Christina Aguilera; and Kevin Davies who delivers immaculate harmonies and silly takes on musical theatre classics.
Expect a repertoire of Woo / Thomas original songs, twisted cabaret standards, raucous sing-alongs and wild lip-syncs from Jonny that invariably end with him taking his kit off. It's a sequin-soaked, star spangled spectacular to help us all launch back into living life to the hilt.
