    thanks, where abouts in manchester is it?

    I go on facebook and twitter, and I have a lot to say, and a lot of people find it hilarious. They recommended doing this. Really, I need a job and some money, this is the way, part time of course.

    Frog and bucket and Remedy in fallowfield both give open mic slots. You don't get paid and why would you? You are unproven they are giving you a chance.

    Make sure you get some good stuff together I've seen too many people die deaths on the stage there

    I will. I hope I don't die on there, but I think I will. What kind of comedians you seen are on there? Is it varied or is this sort of political correctness about jokes?

    I am muslim, I rip myself to shreds...so ...I wanted to bring someone for moral support but that cant be done cos he might be offended. I really want to do it but nerve wracking. Have you ever volunteered for it?

    I think the market is saturated with comedians sporting novelty-North West accents and jokes about eating chips at weddings in 1992
