The Jain Edwards Show at Cultplex, Manchester, 15 September 2022, from £8 - Book now

If your tastes in comedy tend toward the weird, wonderful and painfully funny, The Jain Edwards Show is the one for you. The first season was a triumph, bringing together some of the wildest and most out-there comedians in Manchester and receiving national press attention.

Grub’s much-loved Chapeltown Picture House saw a whirlwind of multimedia comedy, taking in everything from bonkers high-concept ideas to gloriously childish low-brow gags. And on Thursday 15th September it’s back for a second season, this time featuring main Jain herself, Jack Evans, Foxdog Studios and Anna Rose Thomas.

Inspired comedy that never dumbs down, while delivering belly laugh after belly laugh

As ever, the show is hosted by the superficially-lovable-but-worryingly-problematic Jain, ably assisted by this generation’s greatest and weirdest Manchester comedians: Foxdog Studios (“Imagine Flight of the Conchords, if they became IT consultants and invited you round for dinner and DMT.” – The Independent), Jack Lewis Evans (“As inventive and unsettling as a one-man League of Gentlemen.” – Vice) and Jim John Harkness (“Hilarious, often painfully so.” – Broadway Baby).

The unstoppable brains behind A Lovely Time are involved too, guaranteeing a night of inspired comedy that never dumbs down, while delivering a rapid-fire blast of raw guttural laughs and brain-tingling giggles. If you’re looking for the future of comedy in the North, buy your ticket, take your seat, make notes.

This generation’s greatest and weirdest Manchester comedians

And it’s all held at the always-excellent Grub, possibly the most forward-thinking and welcoming venue in all of Manchester. Come with a gang of mates, come on your own, everyone’s friendly here. However you do it, you’ll be part of the most memorable live comedy to hit the city in years.
