First Thursday Comedy Club previews the Edinburgh Fringe

First Thursday Comedy Club at The Met in Bury on Thursday 6 June presents top comedians Mick Ferry and Tom Wrigglesworth showcasing their one-man shows before they head north of the border for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.


Mick Ferry is renowned as a fine purveyor of surrealism and has quickly established himself as one of the most sought after comics on the British and international comedy circuit. He performs regularly at The Comedy Store in London and Manchester as well as headlining at comedy venues nationwide.


“Absolute legend, incredibly funny.” – Jason Manford.


Mick has also recently starred in Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow (BBC1) as well as Comedy Blue and The Comedy Store (Comedy Central). He made his big screen debut in 2009 in Ken Loach’s Looking For Eric (2009).


Sony Award winner Tom Wrigglesworth possesses an innate ability to riff with an audience like they’re old friends. Tom became a national have-a-go-hero when he rescued a little old lady from the jaws of Virgin train bureaucracy, only to be arrested for begging. His subsequent sell-out show, Tom Wrigglesworth’s Open Return Letter to Richard Branson, bagged him the Chortle award for Best Show 2010, and a nomination for the main Edinburgh Festival Comedy gong. Tom now hosts his own series on BBC Radio 4, Tom Wrigglesworth’s Open Letters, tackling consumer affairs in his own hilarious way.


“Wrigglesworth has in his hands a one-way ticket to fringe success.” – The Guardian.


Tickets are £10 or £8 for concessions. For further information or to book tickets please go online at www.themet.biz or phone ticket office on 0161 761 2216
