The pair star at the pre-Christmas Xmas Barrel of Laughs shows which kick off at the Lord’s Walk club.

Manchester comedian Warburton starred as Barry Sidwell on Coronation Street and also appeared opposite Robert Carlyle in action movie The Tournament.

Loaded dubbed him “Rock and roll – and very very funny” while The Sun says: “Brilliant. Watch out, Michael McIntyre.”
