Are you ready for some comedy in Manchester?

Get ready to laugh along with your new Manchester social group. Of all the fun things to do in Manchester, comedy is right up there among the most enjoyable and social of them all. The long-running nights at such venues as The Frog and Bucket or national treasures like The Comedy Store never fail to deliver.


Something old, something new

You won't be disappointed by The Frog and Bucket's Beat The Frog on every Monday night, as we see new comedy hopefuls attempt to last five minutes and beat three bored audience members who are each given a frog to hold up if they don't like the act (not a real one, of course). Or their more established Thursday nights with some great, national talent. Or you may wish to join us at The Comedy Store where we enjoy some of the best acts in the country. It's a great way to experience the nightlife in Manchester.


Cheap drinks and great gags

So if you’re looking for some great Manchester comedy at a venue that is laid back enough for you to get to get to know your new friends, come out on a comedy night out in Manchester and you won’t be disappointed. Your host will welcome you and introduce you to everyone and you'll soon be enjoying some cheap drinks, and maybe even something to eat (both The Frog and Bucket and Comedy Store are renowned for their quality pizza).


So how does it work?

We know it’s a little unusual to turn up at an event knowing no one, so we don’t expect you to. Instead, we introduce you to the founders and then to the event host, who will make sure you’re feeling excited and not too nervous.

Whether it’s that you're looking for more things to do in Manchester or it's a lifelong ambition you're dying to fulfil, our Manchester activities have got you covered!

Good Comedy Night

I love a good comedy night and Social Circle always seems to pick the best venues. The Frog and Bucket never fails to be a great laugh but the smaller venues like Didsbury Cricket Club always put on a good show, too, and tend to be more intimate. It's certainly a great way to break the ice when meeting new people.

Up For A Laugh

I absolutely love comedy nights but most of my Manchester friends seem to enjoy drinking and nothing more, and a comedy night isn't really something that you can go to on your own. But once I started to go to Social Circle events and realised that they were also up for a laugh, I knew they would be great company on a comedy night. I wasn't wrong!

Happy Laughing Along

I love the amateur competition at The Frog and Bucket on Monday nights. It's cruel but fun, and as long as I'm sat nowhere near the front, I'm happy laughing along. There are some other fantastic comedy nights on, too, though. I always have a great time whomever else is at the event as everybody is there to enjoy themselves.
