At the far end of the Northern Quarter you will find one of Manchester's original comedy venues, which thankfully has continued to go from strength to strength, even with the large amount of competition in the city. Originally opened in 1994, the Frog & Bucket moved to its current, much larger location, in June 1996. The club has been a spring-board for many well-known new comedians such as Jonny Vegas and Peter Kay, as well as enjoying the regular patronage of established stars like Steve Coogan and Caroline Aherne. In its role as a normal pub, it serves a good selection of wines and beers, in time saving 4 pint jugs if you wish, and a range of quick snacks like potato wedges, and fries with three dips.
