Blizzard Comedy is a proud safe space with explicit content policies on Racism/sexism/homophobia/transphobia/ablism, and a general blanket ban on being a dick. We also make every effort to content warn any potentially difficult or triggering material ahead of time, and we keep audience participation to a minimal, and only with consent (signified by a sticker you can opt to wear if you are okay with being actively involved with the show).
On top of that we try to have a wide array of acts (subject to availability) so you can be confident you’re never going to end up watching straight white men in shirts for 2 hours, unlike some other comedy clubs which shall remain nameless. (Hint; it’s most of them.)
Headlining our March show is the Manchester’s home grown superstar, TONY WRIGHT

Performing his first stand up set at aged 15 in his home county of Kent, since his debut Tony has made a huge impression on the circuit, leading to a residency as warm up act for Ramsgate Music Hall’s Edinburgh preview season in June-July 2015 opening for a certain Lou Sanders.

Paisley Boyd is a queer non-binary autistic comedian who is just happy to be around. This Pokemon loving 90s kid once tried to fight a swan after it stole a flower from their jelly sandal. The real question is, have they grown up? Because they still get asked for ID when buying energy drinks.
