Simon Caine Presents Laughter is the best Placebo
- Buy Tickets
My life is a constant search for emotional and electrical outlets. If you can relate, this is the show for you.
Simon Caine brings his 2nd hour to Manchester. The show doesn’t massively have a theme, which in itself is the theme. it is his attempt to work out if comedy has improved or immeasurably ruined his life. I think you can tell which side of that he’s on.
