pride of manchester - manchester comedy
Peter Kay

Ever since the days of George Formby and Frank Randle, Manchester comedians have been making the country laugh. Why so many, if not most, of the country's top comedians have come from the region is a question many have tried to explain. On these pages we celebrate the comic legends and tv series to have emerged from the comedy capital - Manchester, England!

Don't miss out on the best acts in town - check out our live comedy gig guide for the hottest stand-up shows, comedy plays and acts in the North West. We regularly keep our gig guide upto date making sure you are first to know about any new dates needed to add to your diary. Book online in seconds to save any messing about with phone numbers and being put on hold. Time to have a laugh, relax with a few drinks, and let your hair down (just don't sit on the front row, there's a good chance you could be picked out of the crowd!)
Dave Spikey as Jerry St.Clair

Bolton comedian Dave Spikey (a.k.a. Jerry 'The Saint' St.Clair from Phoenix Nights) spoke exlusively to Pride Of Manchester during his 'Overnight Success' Tour about playing 3 sell-out nights at The Lowry, his new DVD, and working with Peter Kay. He also found time to praise the legend that is Mancunian sports commentator, Stuart Hall.
