Frog and Bucket, The Award Winning Comedy Club
One Mic, One Stage, One Frog
Jacob Hawley – Howl
BBC New Comedy 2017 finalist Jacob Hawley presents his highly-anticipated debut hour. Hailing from a working-class Brexit town, Jacob now has an arts degree, a vegetarian girlfriend and an almost-convincing concern for climate change. It's not quite Billy Elliot but it's something. 'A mature, sharp wit, a relaxed manner and an undertow of political passion… clever, and different' (Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard). 'Mocks blind patriotism in an enjoyably offbeat way. Nicely Wry' (Steve Bennett, Chortle.co.uk). As seen on BBC Three and heard on BBC Radio 4.
Kidocracy is an interactive theatre show for children aged 6+, presented by Keith Farnan appearing as his alter ego, Brehon, an ancient Irish know-it-all, the show begins when children are told they are being given an island to rule. In just under an hour, they must elect leaders, write anthems, come up with rules that rock and deal with all sorts of crises.
Never Mind The Backstop – The European Farewell Tour!
Brexit is looming. And with nobody quite sure what is going on, some European comedians based in Britain, have taken it upon themselves to say goodbye, you know, just in case.

Mayhem and madness ensue in this not-so-traditional telling of the Teddy Bear’s Picnic. There’ll be music, dancing, and pie facing madness…
Bilal Zafar – Love Bots
Social media has been taken over by bots spreading hate, fear and influencing how we vote. In Lovebots, Bilal has made his own bots to fight back, except these bots only want to spread love and compassion.
Lou Sanders – Shame Pig
After sell-out, critically acclaimed runs at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and London, with both runs extended to meet high demand, Lou Sanders is back with a national tour. She brings stabby step mothers, alcohol issues and an unusual sexual encounter in LA with her.
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. The pack a lot into a small face 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.
