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).

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".
