The Greater Manchester Comedy Festival runs until November 10th at the Kings Arms, in the newly refurbished theatre upstairs and around the pub, with over three dozen acts taking to the stage from early evening until late.

All the acts are new and fresh and funky, we aren't going to recommend any of them, we'll just randomly pick out some interesting names and acts – beginning tomorrow, Monday 4th November - The Danger Zone! with Nick Cranston and Mark Smethurst (7:30pm free), described as `perform jokes…like a well honed elbow drop'; Cock-Kane the Clown debunks Coulrophobia which asks `Are you afraid of clowns? Punish yourself!' (10pm £3), and local BBC 3 comedian Tony Burgess performs an hour of work in progress (10pm £5).

Tuesday 5th November sees Erich McElroy is Presidential, with the BBC Breakfast comedian taking the mick out of American politics (7:30pm £5); The Worst Comedy Night In Salford, an open mic session (8pm free) and Tony Cowards Bespoke Joke Show, tailor made jokes for the audience (8:45pm £5).

Wednesday 6th November includes Mick Ferry Has Been Found Wanting, bringing his Edinburgh show to Salford (7:30pm £5), and the self explanatory Glen Maney – The Prostate Years (10pm £3)

Saturday 9th November sees surreal comedy from Cheekykita (10pm £3); Obie: Hostage: A Captive Audience which takes the phrase `captive audience' to new heights (10pm £5) and Chris Purchase, gagging about the up and downs and hell of life (£8:45pm £5).

The final night, Sunday 10th November, sees a wacky set from The Murderettes `using story suggestions from the audience, we commit a murder for your enjoyment' (6:15pm £5); a show called Squeaky Dirty Stand Up Comedy (5pm free) and Harriet Dyer exploring the thin line between `eccentric and mental' (10pm £4).

AS £5.5MILLION AVOIDED BY DEVELOPERS SALFORD MAYOR SAYS IT'S A 'MYTH'!

In the latest issue of Salford Council's propaganda mag, Life in Salford, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, has denounced the "myth" that "developers don't contribute money to the city. It's simply not true" he says.

Yes, they do contribute some money but they also avoid millions of pounds in payments and provision of affordable housing. Indeed, Salford Star analysis shows that developers avoided almost £5.5million in payments last year, as the Mayor only tells half the truth.

HUGE PAY RISES FOR SALFORD CITY COUNCIL OFFICERS

Star date: 17th April 2018

ASSISTANT DIRECTORS TO GET HUGE PAY RISES

Cash-strapped Salford City Council is to give huge pay rises to senior officers after a 'job evaluation exercise' moved them well up the pay scale. It follows the resignation of the Director of Finance and Corporate Business, and spreading the majority of his salary amongst other re-titled roles.

The Salford Star believes the officers are in line to share around £54,000 between them.
