In an exciting new collaboration, nationally famous comedy platform The Comedy Store is currently running nights in food and drink hotspot Freight Island.

With bases in both London and Manchester, The Comedy Store has long been the home of the up-and-coming stand-up, fanning the flames of many amazing careers in comedy (Eddie Izzard, John Bishop, Jimmy Carr, Rhod Gilbert and Sarah Millican all spring to mind).

Collaborating with Freight Island is a great move. The venue is home to many of the city’s foodie heroes (the latest addition being Seconds Carvery) as well as a plethora of craft beer and cocktails bars. Add a twist of live comedy and you’ve got yourself a great night out.

The night pops up most Thursdays at 7pm, with the latest information on upcoming acts (a mix of comedy store favourites and famous faces) available via the ‘Book now’ button above.
