More comedy stars to thrill at Off the Rails this month

MORE STARS of the comedy circuit will come to Saddleworth’s Off the Rails Comedy Club later this month to leave audience’s reeling with laughter.

COMEDIAN: Funmbi Omotayo

There are just a few tickets remaining for the show on Saturday June 20 when Off The Rails team up with Greenfield Cricket Club aiming to raise £1,000 for the club.

Blind comedian Chris McCausland is probably best known for his appearances advertising a high street bank but he’s been well known as a reliable pleasure on the stand up circuit for over a decade now.

Stockport’s Steve Shanyaski is a familiar face at Manchester’s Comedy Store and Frog and Bucket but will be returning to Saddleworth for those who prefer their entertainment a little closer to home.

Newcomer Tez Ilyas is here by popular demand and Rob Riley comperes the event at The Royal George in Greenfield.

Admission is £12 on the door or advance tickets are available from for £10.

Then Sunday, June 28 sees Justin Moorhouse introducing Funmbi Omotayo whose friendly, instantly likeable style was a big hit on BBC1’s The John Bishop Show.

Funmbi is creating a huge storm on the comedy circuit with tales of living in Hackney, his Nigerian roots and his hilarious day-to-day observations.

Long standing Saddleworth favourite Roger Monkhousewill be opening the show with his trademark stage-prowling style and curious, inimitable manner.

Roger’s forte is delivering intelligent, thought provoking material that pulls no punches and is always incisive, relevant and up to date.

Tickets are priced at £8 and online at or from the venue.
