Highlights include an evening dedicated to all that’s best in musical comedy as well as appearances from TV comedians Justin Moorhouse and Paul Tonkinson!
As it’s Lancaster Music Festival, Sunday 15th October is given over to a multitude of musical comedy genres. Glastonbury and Comedy Store regular Steve Gribbin will be knocking out the gags and satire accompanied by guitar, whilst Benicassim festival favourites Jollyboat open the show with their high energy, mainly pirate based, musical shenanigans. Your compere for the evening is Sam Avery who, as a mere snip of a lad, toured with Motörhead and Ice-T!
Justin Moorhouse has been a staple on our screens for three decades now since finding overnight fame after bagging a part on a mate’s sitcom. Since then he’s won awards for his acting, won Celebrity Mastermind and reprised his old Phoenix Nights role for a quarter of a million people at the Manchester Arena. despite all this it’s live stand up comedy that remains his first love and strongest suit. Sunday 22nd October sees the last chance to catch his extended and critically acclaimed tour show ‘People and Feelings’ in the intimate surroundings of The Borough.
Fancy turning the table on the trick or treaters? Sunday 29th October features former breakfast TV presenter and Michael McIntyre’s support act of choice, Paul Tonkinson. Widely regarded to be as funny as funny gets Paul is joined by this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Best Newcomer nominee Chris Washington.
