SHARP-minded comedian Jimmy Carr brings his new show to The Lowry’s Lyric Theatre on Sunday.

The title, Terribly Funny, gives a large clue about the contents of his act - he will be talking about terrible things that might have affected you or people you know and love.

For humour of a different kind, you can see Magic Goes Wrong, prior to its West End transfer.

Created with magic legends Penn and Teller, multi award-winning Mischief Theatre conjure an evening of grand illusion. They play a hapless gang of magicians presenting a charity event. As the accidents spiral out of control, so does their fundraising target!

Currently performing in five continents and 35 countries, Mischief’s unique brand of hilarious, ‘gut-busting’ comedy (New York Times), has found universal appeal. Written and performed by the original team, this is sure to be the next worldwide smash hit.

You can catch it at The Lowry’s Quays Theatre up to and including Sunday.

The Lowry is also catering for the little uns with a smash-hot production of We’re Going on a Bear Hunt.

Join an intrepid family of adventurers and their musical dog on a quest to find a bear; as they wade through the gigantic swishy swashy grass, the splishy splashy river and the thick oozy, squelchy mud! Expect catchy songs, interactive scenes, plenty of adventure and a few surprises along the way.

Based on the much-loved book picture by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury, this mischievous celebration of play is the perfect treat for families with children aged three and up.

Budding artists with a liking for superheroes should head to The Lowry on Sunday (10.30am - 3.30pm) for a day of life drawing with a superheroes theme.

Organisers stress that no experience is necessary. The workshops are fun and instructive and a great way to develop your artistic skills in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

Professional illustrator Paul Pickford will be providing the tuition and the £30 cost includes all materials used.

Finally, if you are at The Lowry anyway, it makes sense to visit its permanent exhibition, LS Lowry The Art and The Artist, which boasts the largest public collection of his drawings and paintings anywhere.

You could also visit the recently opened special display about the forthcoming film, , Mrs Lowry & Son. It includes behind the scenes photographs, props from the set, film clips, mood boards, shooting schedules and the final screenplay signed by the film’s stars. Timothy Spall, who stars in the film also has art on display.
