Davies and Jowett's Christmas Jumble Sale

Dark humour and puppets with mouths like sewers will please an audience who like their Christmas fun, dark, anarchic and alternative.

So, we ask Adam Davies, of daring double act Davies and Jowett, do you do Salford humour?

"Salford humour?" he repeats "If you could, er, identify what Salford humour is, I've never heard of it. We do stuff for every sort of person, not particularly Salford humour. We wouldn't want to corner the market in that…"

Yeah but like the Salford and Uni comics…Jason Manford, Peter Kay?

"Their stuff is household comedy" he explains "Our stuff is not very household, it's totally in a world of its own, not in any specific comedy genre or place. We specialise in dark, anarchic comedy, stuff that's a bit testing and a bit out there…"

Expect stuff that you can't imagine Kay and Manford muddling around in, with new sketches like Hansel and Gretel v The Evil Crack Demon, and Mime Wars 2: Mime Harder. As Davies and Jowett's other revue, Slaughterhouse, grows in acclaim, this Christmas Jumble Sale show, full of new material, will be another chance to see up and coming `out there' comedy.

Joining them for the three nights special will be Gem and Rose, the female comedy duo Saints of Humour, who recently appeared alongside Johnny Vegas. Also on stage will be Pico the comedy carwash sponge and friends, like a monkey from Newcastle who isn't very good at telling jokes, and a French puppet with a jagged line in bizarre, graphic poetry.

"People who are expecting puppets and light heartedness get some foul mouthed swearing things coming at them" says Pico and co's handler, Peter Kennedy "Pico does lots of different things, like frankly wrong children's stories and songs with no moral barometer."

Peter and his foul mouthed puppets are making a name on the burlesque circuit rather than the comedy circuit, as they class themselves as performance rather than stand up. Indeed, all three acts are a vital alternative to Live At The Apollo – and the organisers have proudly announced that the Christmas Comedy Jumble Sale `will ruin your Christmas'. Apparently, Jesus and Father Christmas are turning up to verify this…

DONALD TRUMP... 'THE WORLD'S MOST DANGEROUS LEADER SINCE THE 1930s' 

Thousands of people packed Albert Square in Manchester last night to voice anger over US President Donald Trump's visit to the UK. Groups from every section of society that Trump has dissed were represented on stage – from Mexican dancers to an ex-US soldier, to trade unions, peace, climate change, refugee, LGBT and women's rights campaigners, plus spokespeople for youth and children. 

To kick off the evening, Manchester councillor, Pat Karney, called Trump "The most dangerous leader since the 1930s...we have to stop the ideas of Trump going across the world..."

'MANIAC' TRUMP NOT WELCOME HERE

A red open top double decker bus toured Salford this morning covered in slogans reading 'Trump Go Home'. It stopped off at Salford Precinct, Salford Royal Hospital, Langworthy Road and the Civic Centre before heading off to Manchester.

The bus was sponsored by Swinton-based Mary Monson Solicitors, and Mary Monson told the Salford Star that "the idea that he'll come and be feted like a respectable person is appalling". Meanwhile Paul Kelly, President of Salford TUC, called Donald Trump an "ultra-capitalist maniac".

Star date: 12th July 2018

SLOW WALKING, LOCK ONS AND ALL DIRECT ACTION OUTLAWED BY JUDGE

Many of the actions used by protesters at the Barton Moss anti-fracking demonstrations in Salford were outlawed by a judge at Manchester Civil Justice Centre yesterday, including slow walking, lock-ons and any obstruction of the highway.

The judgement, in relation to Cuadrilla's fracking site on Preston New Road, Lancashire, has implications for all anti-fracking protests... "This is an incredibly sad day for the right to protest peacefully" said Jonathan Bartle, co-leader of the Green Party.
