A HILARIOUS line up is bringing new acts and Halloween laughs to the Off The Rails Comedy Club in Greenfield in October.
The Comedy Club, at The Royal George on Manchester Road, has become a firm fixture in the local entertainment scene and has played host to a vast majority of big comedy names.
Many comedians have taken their first steps there, including Jack Whitehall and Jim Jefferies, on their way to stardom and success.
Someone who could be following in their footsteps is Elliot Steel, who is coming to entertain the local audience at the Club on Saturday, October 14.
Although here for the first time and only in his twenties he has an impeccable comedy pedigree thanks to his father, comedian, writer and broadcaster, Mark.
One important difference though is their politics; “Your fight was against Thatcher and Blair and the Iraq War” he told his father in a joint interview in The Scotsman last year. “My fight is with ‘social justice warriors’ who sit on the internet.”
Politics aside you can be sure that whatever Elliot chooses to discuss it’s going to be very funny indeed.
