Slaughterhouse Live

The five-man team from Manchester write, produce and perform a brand new energetic, bizarre and intelligent comedy cabaret each month at The Comedy Store, Manchester. Packed with an array of characters such as the World's Strongest Vegan, double act Knockers and Cocks, ventriloquist Ian Crazy and Snuggles the Wheatsheaf, Four Fat Folkers, the Singing Foetus, the psychic brilliance of Graham Mind, Alan Sonar - Blind Juggler, the Dancing Giblets and the children's author Beryl Haines (among others) the show has received wide acclaim.

They have a huge following - having sold out the prestigious Lowry theatre three times and enjoyed a successful residency at The Comedy Store since July last year. In Edinburgh (2003) Slaughterhouse Live packed out the 120-seater Cave 1 (Gilded Balloon) for 18 nights, emerging from their very first Fringe in profit!

2004 has already seen the transmission of their first BBC radio show on Radio Lancashire - which has received excellent reviews with more shows planned - and in June recorded their Radio 4 pilot 'Slaughterhouse Live's Yard of Battenberg'. Their February show at the Manchester Comedy Store was filmed by Granada TV. They had another show at the Lowry this year (June 20th), performed at the Liverpool Comedy Festival and have just returned from a near sell-out run at the Gilded Balloon's 150 seater Nightclub at the Edinburgh Fringe.

Gary Morris and Steve Royle can regularly be heard contributing on BBC GMR and Radio Lancashire respectively.

Slaughterhouse Live are: Gary Morris, Steve Royle, Martin Pemberton, Andrew Willson and Ian Wilkinson
