The Jain Edwards Show returns for the season finale of the best comedy talk show in the country at Grub’s much-loved Chapeltown Picture House.
On Thursday 7th July, expect a whirlwind night of multimedia comedy, taking in everything from bonkers high-concept ideas to gloriously childish low-brow gags. As ever, expect the main Jain herself, Jack Evans, Foxdog Studios and a very special guest indeed, the one and only Chris Cantrill, Creative Tourist’s favourite Yorkshire comedian who you might know from The Delightful Sausage and Alma’s Not Normal.

First-timer? The show is hosted by the lovable but 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 big ol’ 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 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.

And it’s all held at the always-excellent Grub, easily one of the most forward-thinking and welcoming venues 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 some of the most memorable comedy events to hit the city in years.
