Had a blast this weekend. Lovely gigs, lovely people running them and probably the best accommodation on the circuit.
Manchester has a rich comedy heritage, seemingly able to produce iconic comedians quite effortlessly. Mike Newall is certainly the latest, and could even go on to become the greatest.
A gentle, amiable power-house of a comic, Mike’s timing is the envy of performers with ten times the experience and is living proof that you can’t learn to be funny, some people just are.
Since making his debut in 2003, he has toured the country honing his skills and is now a force to be reckoned with.
A talent who audiences, colleagues and industry-types alike are really sitting up and taking notice of, Mike is the future of the Manchester scene, as cheering crowds from Penzance to Inverness will happily testify.
