Sounds of Our Revolution | January 2022: Anti-Capitalism

Contributed by Jonny Collins My new year’s resolution was to stop being forced to live under the oppressive and inequitable system of Capitalism. Sad to say I have failed on this front almost immediately. I could write essays on the many shortcomings of the economic system which has become so thoroughly normalized that even thinkingContinue reading “Sounds of Our Revolution | January 2022: Anti-Capitalism”

Sound of our Revolution | December 2021: Best of 2021

Contributed by Jonny Collins Well, here we are. The end of quite possibly one of the toughest years of my life, and judging by the general vibe on social media, the sentiment is largely shared. 2020 was an unprecedented disaster with glimmers of hope at the end of the tunnel. 2021 took that hope, shatContinue reading “Sound of our Revolution | December 2021: Best of 2021”

Sound of Our Revolution | November 2021: Environmentalist Anthems

Contributed by Jonny Collins Another Month, another arbitrary playlist to listen to before the next Blizzard Comedy stream on the 29th November. This month our theme is Climate Change & Environmentalism. After the disaster of the Cop 26 and certain world leaders (specifically our own) demonstrating how little they care at best about the inevitableContinue reading “Sound of Our Revolution | November 2021: Environmentalist Anthems”

Thank you for coming to Blizzard Comedy Live with Erika Ehler!

Contributed by Jonny Collins Another Month, another night of Blizzard Comedy Live at Gullivers NQ Manchester, but uniquely, this show occurred on the 8th of November 2021 – which is the only Blizzard Comedy show on that date. You had to be there. Unlike the chaos of last month we had only 4 acts performingContinue reading “Thank you for coming to Blizzard Comedy Live with Erika Ehler!”

Sound of Our Revolution | October 2021: AFAB, Women and Femme Solidarity

I’ve wanted to do a playlist on the theme of Women’s rights and solidarity for a while, and honestly it’s a travesty that I’m only now just getting it. But while we’re seeing at best naïve useless advice and at worst victim blaming bootlicking from the police and their sympathizers in the aftermath of theContinue reading “Sound of Our Revolution | October 2021: AFAB, Women and Femme Solidarity”

Thank you for coming to our first live show back after lockdown!

Contributed by Jonny Collins Well, we did it. After 20 long months of not being in a small, enclosed room yelling jokes at 20-35 strangers, Blizzard Comedy officially returned with a bang on Monday the 4th October! And oh what a show it was. Plagued with technical hiccups, performance anxiety and…well…the plague, I’d be lyingContinue reading “Thank you for coming to our first live show back after lockdown!”

Sound of Our Revolution | September 2021: Class Solidarity

Intersectionality is a word that gets tossed around a lot. It’s a concept crucial to leftist ideas, and the lack of it is I think the downfall of all the major left leaning political figures in the world. Simply put, it is the interconnected nature of social categories; race, gender, sexuality, class, etc. More specificallyContinue reading “Sound of Our Revolution | September 2021: Class Solidarity”

Blizzard Comedy LIVE, featuring (No) Money in the Bank

WE ARE VAXXED AND BLIZZARD COMEDY IS BACK! After a long, long hiatus in which we have missed you all terribly we are finally (cautiously) returning to live stand up comedy. We’ll be at Gullivers from 7pm on Monday 4th October with some of our all time faves bringing their best jokes to the stage.Continue reading “Blizzard Comedy LIVE, featuring (No) Money in the Bank”

Sound of Our Revolution | August 2021: Bollocks to Brexit

I can’t believe I’ve not done one of these on Brexit yet. Sure, I’ve mentioned it in other playlists before, and it’s arguably way too late to be addressing this as we are far too deep into the bullshit to reasonably prevent any of the damage. Heck, we’re seeing more damage every day, and whilstContinue reading “Sound of Our Revolution | August 2021: Bollocks to Brexit”

Sound of Our Revolution | July 2021: Intent to Cause a ‘Serious Annoyance’

Another month, another wealth of Tory bullshit to inspire this month’s musical rage playlist. This was a tricky one, not for lack of inspiration, more to the lack of trying to narrow down one particular theme rather than just Evil politicians being evil. Do I try to capture the feeling of dread many of theContinue reading “Sound of Our Revolution | July 2021: Intent to Cause a ‘Serious Annoyance’”
