The Comedy Store can be found at Deansgate Locks, an area synonymous with young flashy drinkers.
The venue is ideal for the purpose. In unison with the atmospheric styling of the venues in the area, and the open bricked walls give a very traditional setting for stand up.
Despite the formal stage setting, professional lighting and sound equipment, the venue has a spontaneous feeling to it. If you are looking for great comedy in Manchester, then look no further than the Comedy Store. It has a fantastic pedigree of performers, and shows no sign of tiring.
There are plenty of offers on all the time, and the prices are pretty reasonable.
We have compiled a list of regular shows help at The Comedy Store…

Best In Stand Up
The finest Comedy Club in the land delivers five world class comedians. You will laugh out loud for over two hours. Avoid tears on arrival by booking in advance for this sell out show.
7pm until about 2am (last entry midnight), tickets priced between £20-40.
The idea of the show is for you to have five minutes’ worth of comedy material and to see if you can last the full five minutes without being gonged off.
The compere hands out three red cards to three sections of the audience and when all the cards are held up you are gonged off.
However, if you last the whole five minutes you are brought back on stage at the end of the show for a clap-o-meter style final. If there is no obvious winner the last two contestants will do a ‘gag-off’ and the audience decides THE winner.
The winner, aside from taking the first footsteps to fame and fortune, receives £50, an open-spot at The Comedy Store and an elegant gold crown.
For all shows, the venue opens at 6pm and the show starts at 7.30pm – but as a contestant, you would need to arrive no later than 7.00pm and check-in at the desk near the front door. Oh! You are also entitled to two complimentary guests to watch you perform.
