Mandatory Redistribution Party: Hostile Takeover at GRUB Manchester, Manchester 19 May 2022 Tickets from £5.50 — Book now

Mandatory Redistribution Party has been causing a stir in podcast circles for a good few years now. Hosts Jack Evans and Sean Morley are two of the sharpest and funniest brains on the UK comedy circuit, and instead of having a beady eye on potential tax havens, they’re radical left firebrands, as hilarious as they are informed.

Jack and Sean have performed some of the most memorable live comedy shows in living memory

Now they’re bringing the show to Grub, courtesy of Manchester comedy promoters extraordinaire, A Lovely Time. The event is called Hostile Takeover and let’s see what the lads themselves have to say about it:

“Hostile Takeover is a live comedy experience forged in the glonked bonces behind Mandatory Redistribution Party, a podcast of left-wing lore and repartee that looks at the big ideas influencing the past and future of radical politics. Previous topics include Marx’s theory of alienation, King Kong’s actual size and if the society depicted in Pokémon is capitalist or communist. Join knockabout radicals and gangly darlings of the northwave comedy scene Sean Morley and Jack Lewis Evans as they ask: can a comedy show be collective action?”

If that butters your crumpets, buy a ticket post-haste – they’re selling out fast.  As for Jack and Sean, these two have performed some of the most memorable live comedy shows in living memory and their political takes are more vital now than ever. Need proof? Check out practically any episode of their podcast, you’ll be queueing up for a hammer and sickle tattoo before you know it.
