Sale Festival: Hootin Annie's Big Band - Up Close & Personal with Amy Webber


Early bird tickets available until May 31!


Up Close & Personal with Amy Webber promises to be an utterly entertaining experience with an artist unleashed to do what she does best. This one off show will be a first for Amy, weaving together jazz classics, weird and wonderful stories, and hilarious comedy.

Amy will be singing some of her all time favourite songs while delving into anecdotes from her childhood in Japan to how she accidentally fell into comedy, careers tried and failed, and music she discovered along the way. Expect soulful singing, unfiltered storytelling, and captivating entertainment from a performer who is unashamedly herself.

Winner of 'Best Stand Up Comedy' at Manchester Fringe (2023), Amy's debut one woman comedy show was praised as “a divinely constructed comedy hour” (Playbill) and alongside a sell out run at Edinburgh Fringe, was added to the Telegraph's '35 of the funniest shows of the Fringe' list. As a singer, Amy has performed in iconic venues such Wigmore Hall and Abbey Road Studios and as a songwriter Amy has written songs for the likes of Oxford University Press, BBC Radio Manchester and Manchester’s very own Take Back Theatre.


Amy is an award-winning comedian and vocalist, as heard on BBC Radio 4. A versatile voice and flare for performance have led to a diverse and exciting career as a singer, musical comedian and songwriter. With an degree in Opera and a masters in Pop (Royal Northern College of Music), she is excited to be returning to Manchester for this intimate and exclusive show.
