beat the frog - frog & bucket
BEAT THE FROG - Mon 11th Sept - The Frog & Bucket
Arguably the best amateur stand-up night in the country as the comedians take on the might of the Frog and Bucket audience to try and win through and beat the frog - the sign of disapproval.

Steve Shanyaski
Mark Jackson

In her first tour since 2001, dynamic stand-up comic and TV and Radio favourite Gina Yashere is back with a brand new show packed with the inspired jokes, infectious wit and razor-sharp observations. Best known for her TV appearances on The Lenny Henry Show, Comic Relief Does Fame Academy as well as BBC Radio’s new show The Powder Room, Gina’s sell-out live appearances are legendary, her unique take on being both cultural insider and outsider never failing to raise the roof (complaints range from split sides to shaking with laughter for several days). Expect a fast-moving and hilarious evening from one of Britain’s freshest and most popular talents.

Salford Stuffers at the Lowry Theatre
SALFORD STUFFERS - Thurs 14th Sept 2006 - The Lowry, Salford Quays

An inky black comedy, set in the 1980s, when automation in the newspaper industry was a thing of the future. The work was dirty, hard and poorly paid and took place in the wee small hours. If you were the one who stuffs the fliers into the newspapers - which everyone chucks in the bin – you’d have to laugh, wouldn’t you?

Frank Sidebottom at the Lowry Theatre
AN EVENING WITH FRANK SIDEBOTTOM - Fri 15th Sept 2006 - The Lowry

Yes, beyond doubt Frank Sidebottom is Show Biz’s most fantastic star… and when we say “Show Biz” Frank can’t be surpassed in his world of light entertainment including – Television; Radio; Concerts; Lectures; Records; Comic Strip Art; and Puppetry! Star of his own series “Frank's Fantastic Shed Show” for ITV… Frank also appeared as Anthony Wilson's sidekick on C4’s“Remote Control” which ran for 33 episodes. Frank's other great TV achievements also include 8 years on Saturday morning telly, covering; What's Up Doc; 73; Saturday Picture Show, Motormouth and a recent Dick n’ Don in da Bungalow! Musically Frank has his own inimitable style and has managed to crack the TOP 100 a number of times with classic banjo ballads such as –“Mull of Timperley”; “Anarchy in Timperley” and “Timperley Sunset". Needless to say that Frank is born and bred Timperley. Frank's live performances are legendary and have achieved cult status, be it a crowd of 14,000 when headlining the comedy slate at the Reading Music Festival, supporting “BROS” at Wembley Stadium in front of 54,000 or, simply doing a “Timperley Lecture” in front of 300, each and every performance is different!?
