The Frog and Bucket comedy club sits on the far edge of the Northern Quarter in Manchester city centre and was one of the first venues to open in the now creatively bustling district.

Dave Perkin opened his first club back in 1994 at the Britainnia pub on Newton Street with a capacity of just 60 back in the nineties when Oasis were hanging out in Dry Bar around the corner, comedians who are now household names were honing their art at the only dedicated comedy club in the city at the time.

Cheekily renamed as the Frog and Bucket, the club firstly just presented weekend shows then, a few months after opening, it took on an amateur night too. Three years later the club moved to its current premises at the end of Oldham St.

The Frog and Bucket continues to provide a place to nurture new talent, for Manchester to check out the stars of the future and to see those acts that though they aren’t a household name now they are at the grass roots of truly fantastic and exciting live stand up.
