A Night of Comedy Provides the Perfect Tonic to Footballing Failure

Football can be pretty funny sometimes – just picture Jean Alain-Boumsong trying to defend or Jamie Carragher having a pop at goal – but for true hilarity try watching the professionals in action.

For many at this time of the season, all that pervades the senses is heartbreak (Manchester City fans) and disappointment (Liverpool fans). And with England’s inevitable quarter-final exit from the World cup just around the corner, the future is not looking particularly chirpy either.

To alleviate those May days spent moping around and kicking the cat, CaughtOffside have teamed up with to direct you towards the best form of counselling – laughter.

This month there are some fantastic comedy nights out to be had at affordable prices that will guarantee total escapism for the night while your tears of despair are supplanted by tears of mirth.

The hilarious yet cosy Peter Kay is in the middle of a huge tour and tickets are available at incredible prices that are way below face value. His gig at the MEN Arena in Manchester on May 11 has tickets on sale from an astonishing £6!

Tickets are also going cheaply for the highly popular musical stylings of Flight of the Conchords. Tickets are going for as little as £18 to see the New Zealand comedy duo and they will be playing in every corner of the country in May – from Glasgow to London via Birmingham and Manchester – so grab them while their hot.

The abrasive humour of Frankie Boyle, the dry yet cutting observations of Jimmy Carr, the American surrealism of Rich Hall and sharp Irish wit of Dara O’Briain are all performing during the month of May so cheer yourself up and have a few laughs.

But if you really want to escape the beautiful game altogether you could always head to the land that football forgot – the US of A – and catch the one and only Ricky Gervais in New York for only £11 (price does not include flight or accommodation!)
