BLACKPOOL is exporting two of its home grown comedians to Lancaster on Sunday.

Lancaster Comedy Club, housed in The Borough, 3 - 5 Dalton Square, is featuring Greg Cook and Andy Dalton with support from Johnny Sorrow and compere Scott Agnew.

Greg Cook’s deadpan style and mastery of the spoken word led the BBC to describe him as “a Les Dawson for the 21st century”.

A prolific comedy writer, he has hours of tested material to draw on, but prefers to draw his material from the day’s papers.

Religion, politics, sport, terrorism, poetry, the police, philosophy, royalty and his long-suffering mum have all been given the Greg Cook treatment, since he began performing several years ago.

Former Blackpool tram driver Andy Watson’s energetic stage pacing has brought comparisons to Lee Evans – without the suit and the sweat.

Within weeks of trying his talents at open mic nights he left Blackpool for the comedy territory of Manchester from where he went on to win the City Life Comedian Of The Year, appear at the Edinburgh Festival, tour various Comedy Store and Jongleurs outlets and be handpicked by Paddy McGuiness to support him on 29 tour dates.

The show starts at 8pm. Admission £9 or £7 in advance from the venue or online at www.lancastercomedy.co.uk. More information from (01524) 64170.
