Blizzard Comedy is delighted to bring Manchester’s Northern Quarter two brilliant new work-in-progress shows from some of our most celebrated acts. Join us on Thursday 23rd June for brand new comedy from:
“Voice of a new generation” and rising star Hannah Platt has already been making her mark as a comic, having been described as “a voice of a new generation” by The Skinny and “a distinctive voice with something to say” by Chortle, never shying away from sensitive topics with acerbic, brutal honesty and quick wit.
She was a BBC New Comedy Awards Finalist, recently wrote and starred in her own Laugh Lesson for BBC Three, and has supported Kiri Pritchard-McClean, Fern Brady and Lou Sanders on tour.
and Umby Winters
Umby Winters is Queer. Not just queer, but very queer. As a nonbinary comedian, Umby is able to bring a unique perspective to everyday interactions that those who fit inside the gender binary take for granted. From things as simple to using the bathroom to decisions as big as their own name; Umby takes the audience on a “gently educational” tour through life as a member of the Trans community.
Umby tackles hot button topics with joy, sincerity, and just a touch of the absurd. Equipped with “the sort of adjectives that would bring Piers Morgan out in a cold sweat” (Chortle).
