After our scorching summer break, Laugh Local will be returning to Chorlton Irish Club on Friday 5th September. Laugh Local host, Justin Moorhouse has been performing his show, This is What I Am, at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival throughout August, and is currently on our TV screens in Coronation Street as Rover Return rival pub, The Flying Horse’s landlord! Justin’s guest comedians for September’s Laugh Local will be Will Franken, Duncan Oakley and Nicky Wilkinson.

Will Franken is a character comedian, satirist mimic and actor based in London. Born and raised in Missouri, he holds a master’s degree in English, with a specialisation in Restoration and 18th Century Literature. After making a name for himself in New York’s Greenwich Village’s alternative theatre scene, Will moved to San Francisco where he regularly won awards for ‘Best Comedian’. In 2007, he made his television debut on BBC America’s ‘The World Stands Up’ , then ~ as a devout Anglophile ~ he moved to the UK where he continues to win over audiences.

‘I cannot remember one moment of this show that wasn’t funny. I am still laughing!’ (The Scotsman).

With musical skills that would easily fit into many rock bands, Duncan Oakley performs an infectious mix of musical comedy and stand up with one of his trusty guitars by his side. With an eye and ear for the silly, rude, playful and downright irritating occurrences of life, Duncan musters up songs that not only make you laugh, they bury into the recesses of your mind and find you a humming tune with a smile on your face 3 days later, confused and wondering where it’s come from.

‘Leaping between stupidity & pure brilliance!’ (Yorkshire Evening Post)

Nicky Wilkinson is an actress, stand-up comedian, improviser and sketch performer. Her comedy mixes charming, real-life anecdotes with just the right dose of self-deprecation and often brilliantly funny improvised riffs with the crowd. Nicky’s impressive stage presence, great comic timing and considerable comedy performance experience are ensuring she’s already moving quickly through the stand-up comedy ranks!

Doors open at 6.30pm for bar and free pasty supper at Chorlton Irish Club. The comedy starts at 8.30pm.

Tickets for Laugh Local on Friday 5th September are £10 & available online here: https://www.ticketline.co.uk/order/tickets/13296217/bop-local-presents-laugh-local-chorlton-irish-club-2014-09-05-18-30-000 or call Pearse McDaid at Chorlton Irish Club on 0161 881 2898

Bop Local ~ Sat 30 Aug ~ Chorlton Irish Club

For our August Chorlton Bop Local, DJs for the evening will be Phil Beckett, Mark Smith & Martin Holland. There are quite a few birthdays/parties & various celebrations going on that night, so the music will definitely reflect that ~ lots of old school house & dance tunes.

For anyone who hasn’t been to Chorlton Irish Club…the venue has a large car park at the back and it’s a 5 minute walk from Chorlton Metrolink Station. Most Bop Locals take place on the ground floor in the main area*, where there’s a large dance-floor, seating & a great bar with excellent staff & regular drinks promotions. On our busier nights there’s also a bottle bar next to the cloakroom. We also use the adjacent Lounge Bar as more of a chill-out room. There’s wheelchair access to the club too and the air conditioning comes in handy on those hot, summer nights!!

*For our parties & ‘Not Quite New Year’s Eve’ nights, we open upstairs in the club and have additional DJs.

Doors 8.30pm-1am.

Bop Local ~ Sat 23 Aug ~ Heaton Park Sports & Social Bar

Following a fantastic Prestwich Bop Local in June, when Ian Puleston-Davies was Phil Beckett’s guest DJ for the evening, we return again on Saturday 23rd August.

So for our summer Bop Local at Heaton Park Sports & Social Bar we’re thrilled that Mary-Ellen McTague ~ head chef at award-winnning Aumbry, Prestwich ~ is going to be guest DJ!

Mary-Ellen was awarded Chef of The Year at the Manchester Evening News Food & Drink Awards 2013 & is probably familiar to TV viewers through the Great British Menu series (& we’ve heard she certainly knows her music)!! It just happens to be Mary-Ellen’s birthday on 23rd August too, so it’s going to be one big summer party in Prestwich!

Doors open at 8.30pm for our ace warm-up DJ for the evening, Chris Payne ~ who has some great tunes at the ready for us! Bar/music ends 1am.

(There will be a bit of a pre-party too at Cuckoo Prestwich 6.30-8.30pm).

Tickets are available online here & will also be dropped off at Pinto’s, Prestwich. https://www.ticketline.co.uk/order/
