ROSS NOBLE - Monday 16th October 2006 - Opera House

In a frighteningly funny show Jason sets out to explore the myths and nonsense surrounding Urban Legends whilst retaining a healthy respect for them.

Russel Brand at the Dancehouse Theatre
RUSSELL BRAND - Sun 22nd October 2006 - The Palace Theatre
Winner of Time Out’s Stand-Up Comedian of the Year gong and described as “the most exciting comedian of his generation”, Big Brother's big mouth takes his award-winning wit to the masses this season with a major national UK tour. The critically acclaimed 6 Music host fronted the NME Awards earlier this year and continues to deepen laughter lines with his relentlessly energetic MTV show '1 Leicester Square'. A much-loved regular on London's comedy circuit, he can also be seen in the forthcoming Reese Witherspoon film “Penelope”. Russell is joined by Edinburgh Festival favourite Trevor Lock, who cut his comedy teeth as a writer and performer on the national stand-up scene.
   
Mitchell & Webb at The Lowry
THE TWO FACES OF MITCHELL & WEBB - Sun 22nd Oct 2006 - The Lowry

David Mitchell and Robert Webb, two medium-sized figures of the small screen return to the medium in which they were once tiny: the theatre. Join them for an evening of wondering where the camera is and forgetting to speak up, as they weave character, suspense and comedy just by titting around in front of some painted wood. David and Robert conjure a world inhabited by gritty urban anti-heroes, pantomime space villains and alcoholic snooker commentators (all of whom look a bit like Mark and Jeremy from Peep Show but definitely aren't) and then they make them talk to each other like they're in some crazy play with nowhere near enough actors. Like TV but more exclusive, and infinitely more hassle.

   
Adam Hills at The Lowry
ADAM HILLS - Sun 22nd Oct 2006 - The Lowry Salford Quays
Triple Perrier Award nominee Adam is one of Australia's most talented and widely respected comedians. His unique style of thoughtful, uplifting comedy and rampant spontaneity have won him rave reviews and a legion of fans worldwide.
