THE Greater Manchester Comedy Festival brings a special session of the monthly show, Let’s See What Happens, to the Kings Arms on Saturday, November 7.
Writer and filmmaker Sean Mason, originally of Northwich, told Quays News what can be expected at Let’s See What Happens.
“It’s a spontaneous show and everything is made up on the night,” he said. Sean also says that Brainne Edge, a performing arts lecturer from Salford University, is taking part in the show.
There’s a real diversity to what can take place at Let’s See What Happens. Sean explains “it’s a real mix of different styles of comedy. We have people who are professional stand ups and other people from all walks of life”.
Let’s See What Happens has in the past had established acts perform on its night, and Sean believes that it can’t be ruled out that there will be one on November 7.
Sean said: “We’ve got a really interesting mix of people. Some are up and coming stand ups, we have established stand ups who have done television.
“Recently we’ve had Arthur Bostrom, who played Officer Crabtree in ‘Allo ‘Allo! Come and do the show a couple of times. We’ve had Bethany Black, who was in Cucumber and Banana on Channel 4 and who’s about to do Doctor Who. Who knows who could turn up in November?”
Sean believes that improvised comedy is the best of all and with the strength of his conviction, it’s easy to agree with.
He added: “The show was inspired by a comedian from Chicago called Armando Diaz. Like anyone who does a show like that, it’s kind of evolved and taken us in a different form but that’s the grounding of it. This show can and will go anywhere.”
Let’s See What Happens is at The Kings Arms, 11 Bloom Street, M3 6AN, on November 7 at 7.30pm. Admission is £3.00 on the door on the night.
