Wit and wisdom from Lee Nelson

The Lancaster Grand Theatre comedy festival is already tickling funny bones with more big names coming up over the next few days.

Fans have already enjoyed Russell Kane and Stephen K Amos, and next on the funny bill is none other than the notorious Roy ‘Chubby’ Brown.

He’s rude, he’s crude, he’s definitely politically incorrect, and as he says himself, if you’re easily offended, please stay away. You won’t get to see him on TV so his live performance on Friday, November 8 is the only place to catch him.

The world’s funniest Cornishman, Jethro, then brings his latest laughter-loaded show to the Grand on Monday, November 11. Although milder in his observations on life than Chubby, the evening of witty observations and thigh-slapping gags is definitely for adults only.

On Thursday, November 14, touring comedy show Fascinating Aida will launch a ‘Charm Offensive’ with their classic comedy singing and satirical cabaret act.

After selling out the London O2 arena, Lee Nelson will bring with him a host of characters from his hugely popular BBC3 show Lee Nelson’s Well Funny People. Described as the “hottest creation since Ali G and Vicky Pollard”, Nelson is a baseball cap wearing ‘sarf London geezer with a little Harry Enfield and even a strand or two of Norman Wisdom in his DNA.
