Award winning TV and radio presenter Terry Christian (and his alias Monsignor Malachi Mary O’Rourke) presents the Mad Manc Cabaret.
Interviews and live performances from poets, comedians, musicians in a no holds bar show that’s as Mancunian as waiting for a bus in the rain.
It will be The Word, but live on stage, in Manchester.
Terry will be joined by:
With a first album that debuted at number 5 in the UK album charts, this Salfordian Chanteuse is condemned to be a star for life. Loved by Tom Jones (who she’s duetted with) and feted by national radio, she’s got a voice that oozes sheer class. Think Patsy Kline meets KD Lang and throw in some Edith Piaf, because that’s the kind of company this 24 year old can hold her own in.
Teenage drug dealer turned rapper from Belfast. This lad is a sensation; think Chuck D of Public Enemy meets Bob Marley and you’ll get a sense of his passion and firebrand delivery. Last time he shook the whole audience to their boots.
The one time Queen of the Madchester scene was born for the stage, watch her own it again with a selection of numbers from her critically acclaimed one-woman musical play fresh from a sell out tour, Rise & Fall Of A Northern Star.
One to watch for, a young grime rapper from Trafford who raps over acoustic guitar melodies.
The new bard of Salford. Winner of best spoken word show at The Manchester Fringe festival in the summer. If you were at the last Mad Manc Cabaret, you may have witnessed him being furiously congratulated by non-other than John Cooper Clarke’s brother.
DaBridge (aka Andrew Bridge)
One time singer song-writer and producer of Moss Side Street Soul Duo Parrish, this guy is a true R&B treasure.
