Following my post yesterday about ecstasy I have perused Howard Marks' website, and he has only one live show in the next couple of months. If you have not seen him live I can recommend him, his shows are superbly entertaining but, if you have short hair and are 40 something, prepare for the more paranoid audience members to ask if you are a copper, it happened to me twice a couple of years ago when we saw him in Skipton. Actually, it didn't happen when we saw him in Morecambe so maybe it was just paranoid Yorkshiremen.
Anyway if you are in Manchester, or can get there on October 8th, give yourself a treat. Full details here.
