Who is everyone seeing? Either live or on nextup?! We have about 12 booked 🥰 I can't wait! I AM BUZZING! My top 3 I am most excited for are Rosie Jones, Olga Koch and Seymour Mace 🥰
Although I keen to have my mind expanded by the wonderful Robin Ince.
And I'm curious to hear which lyrics will change for Johnny and the Baptists.
I feel so incredibly lucky to experience the art of so many wonderful people

Chris Karaiskos I would say if you're new to him - start with Tony-Law-Lite "An Hour & Some of Tony Law" - it's early stuff and it has the scaffolding to ease you into his style. Then after you can get into experience solid 100% Tony in "Maximum Nonsense" or my personal favourite "Go Mr Tony Go". However if you're used to stretching your comfort zone and enjoying surreal whimsey then just plunge directly into "Go Mr Tony Go". It's such a shame he didn't save any of his lockdown twitch stuff, but... OOoooooOOOOooo google "LIVE COMEDY: Tony Law and Phil Nichols are VCEB!" Nextup has a recording on their Facebook <3 This is what they would do in lockdown!!!!!!!!!!! Something else! Hold onto your hat!

I always recommend XS Malarkey if you are in Manchester; and Backyard Comedy Club if you are in London :)
Both are a space for new and A-List comedians to use the stage to try out new material; and its less than £10 a ticket.
I have also started to go to Bright Club Manchester where researchers and nerds do geeky jobs around an academic theme. Perfect for Manchester with our 4 universities and many colleges.
Also I would recommend Stewart Lee's show Basic Lee ... it has a surprise.

It is only available on some shows; using the app on a device like a tablet or mobile (not on the tv app). The download option is where you click 3 dots to the right of the title's heart like button. See screenshot

Ah! Had to figure out to login to comment :P
I've been indulging in Tony Law. He really needs more exposure - so many shows, an absolute genius and a gem.
I got into him from a Tony and Phil show at fringe, then his twitch streams got me through the pandemic.
So glad he is touring again
