About The Frog and Bucket Comedy Club

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. Back in the nineties when Oasis was 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.

Dave Perkin opened his first club back in 1994 at the Britannia pub on Newton Street with a capacity of just 60.

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, into a reinforced building that was a former bank and so was completely unmarked when the IRA bomb went off in 1996 just down the road. When the cordon around the city centre was lifted three days after the bombing, the club reopened for its amateur night and acts and punters flooded in to show their solidarity.
