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)

Thursday 7th November includes Yellow Soul, sketches by comedy student from Salford University (7:30pm £3); comedic slants on the news from Steve Allen (8:45pm £5) and new stand up from Adam Blaize and Sam Smith complete with Twitter feedback (10pm free).

On Friday 8th November the Power Couple, Gary and Stephen, dissect their relationship in the general scheme of relationships (10pm free), while Hiding Behind Imaginary Walls features three comedians (8:45pm £2).

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).

There's loads of other acts not mentioned but a full list of the gigs appears on the Kings Arms website – click here.
