Foxdog Studios presents

Applause Generator with Simon Munnery

Tech comedy duo FOXDOG STUDIOS bring a night of alternative comedy, mainstream variety and robotic applause to The Dancehouse Manchester.

Headliner SIMON MUNNERY is one of the world's most eccentric and well-respected comedians. With a career spanning over three decades, he has countless TV and radio appearances to his name, as well as Chortle and Sony Gold Award wins, and nominations for a British Comedy Award, a Rose d'Or and an Edinburgh Comedy Award.

'Simon Munnery's material is better than any commercially available DVD by any comedian ever' Stewart Lee

'One of the funniest, most original comedians of the past twenty years' The Guardian

'Convention-defying, innovative stuff - a must-see' The Times

'Simon Munnery is an avant-garde comedy god' Time Out

We've also got juggernauts of absurdity RÓISÍN AND CHIARA. We saw this wild double act at our very first Edinburgh Fringe, and they taught us everything we needed to fight our way to the top. This is their first Northern show off the back of their 3-month tour of Spain, and we're excited to see what they'll bring for us.

'A unique brand of bonkers' Chortle

'Beautifully silly' The Sunday Times

'Roisin & Chiara throw all cautions to every wind and come up with the daft goods' The List

Plus lo-fi cult comic JAYNE EDWARDS, dabbling in multimedia, characters and the souls of middle aged men.

'A unique comic' The Skinny

Hosted by Fallowfield's finest IT consultants FOXDOG STUDIOS, with bizarre technology, live music and their brand new applause generator.

'If you don't enjoy their brand of techy musical comedy, there must be something wrong with your hardware' Time Out

'A truly unique experience in terms of the technology and there's some brilliantly understated comedy to boot' British Comedy Guide
