Slaughterhouse Live are a four-man character-cabaret team based at the Comedy Store Manchester. Formed in 2001 and starting with monthly shows at the Thirsty Scholar pub on Oxford Road they went on to sell out the prestigious Lowry theatre numerous times and secure a residency at The Comedy Store in July 2003. In 2005 they received the 'Best Comedy Show' Award at the Brighton Fringe Festival. They also have performed at the Edinburgh Fringe with well populated and received runs at the Gilded Balloon (2003-2005 inc.), the Pleasance Courtyard (2006) and for a short 'Best of...' run at the Underbelly (2007).
