Frog and Bucket, The Award Winning Comedy Club
One Mic, One Stage, One Frog
The Frog and Bucket was recently denied a cut of the Culture Recovery Fund as they didn't consider us culturally significant. We believe we are essential to Manchester's cultural offering and now need to crowdfund in the short term to stay open, keep comics in work and keep audiences laughing. Please click to donate. Any help would go a long way!
Given the most recent government announcement of a 10pm curfew, we will now be moving our weekly shows forward half an hour for a 9:30pm finish. Thanks for the support so far everyone and hope to see you all here soon!
Xmas and NYE
The night will be introduced by one of our world class comperes and features two headline comedians with one short break in between for you to charge your glasses! After the show, you can dance the night away with our classic after-party!
Wanting to pursue a career in comedy or just fancy it as a hobby? Then why not take our comedy course! 8 weeks of tutoring with Dave Williams, pro comic since 1998 and regular MC and act at the Frog and throughout the UK. Sessions will take place on Saturday afternoons 1pm-3pm and will end with a showcase for you to show off what you have learned.
Gift vouchers can be purchased here to any value you wish!
"Laughter is the best medicine"
If laughter is the best medicine, The Frog and Bucket is officially the best dispensary. - M.E.N
Always great value and very entertaining and a great venue. Often have special offers for comedy nights too. Reasonably priced drinks, some real ales on tap and great food. Burgers pizzas sharing platters etc all great value. Staff friendly too.
"Roared with laughter"
Went here with a Christmas do. The food was good and plenty, the assortment of drinks to everyone's liking, but you go here for the stand-up. I think the Frog and Bucket is the host of most of the talent in Manchester. I was truly sad it was over after two comedians. We all roared with laughter.
"Super chilled out vibe & very funny night out"
I surprised my boyfriend with tickets to a Thursday night show and we both had an amazing time. They pack a lot into a small space and there is a real intimate feel. The acts were all hilarious and very daring which was right up our street. Fantastic cocktails too!
"Barrel of laughs night"
Fun venue literally! Saturday nights are Barrel of laughs night with 3 acts. Best to book a table as it gets very busy, food (pizza) and two bars provide sustenance. It’s not the largest venue so don’t wear too much as it gets pretty warm. I came on my own and felt perfectly comfortable. Singles and couples may have to share tables but you are here to see the acts so it’s not a problem. Strong recommend.
What a fab night for something different to do. Reasonably priced - good atmosphere. Well organised. Am really looking forward to doing this again.
