Cultural Comedy Tours featuring Tony Wright and Daniel Nicholas at Salford Museum and Art Gallery, Manchester 16 September 2021 Tickets from £10 — Book now

Cultural Comedy Tours put on highly-regarded, entertaining guided tours of galleries, museums and other cultural heritage sites, conducted by professional comedians. Tonight’s event at Salford Museum and Art Gallery is hosted by Tony Wright and Daniel Nicholas.

Manchester-based comedian and University of Salford graduate Tony Wright has been performing comedy since he was 15. Having made the finals of Chortle Student Comedy Awards and Beat the Frog World Series,  Tony was nominated for best breakthrough act at the 2019 North West Comedy Awards.

Cultural Comedy Tours brings together some of the UK’s most exciting comedic talents in a way you won’t have seen them before

Tony will be joined by Cultural Comedy Tours co-founder Daniel Nicholas, award-winning improviser, interactive comedian, independent producer and expert in site-specific comedy.

Following a run of successful events at The Grant Museum this summer, Cultural Comedy Tours is bringing together some of the UK’s most exciting comedic talents in an all-new format – less stage, more of a wander around the country’s best-loved museums and galleries, with plenty of jokes along the way.
