LYTHAM’S St George’s Day Festival comedy night is back - after a sell-out event last year.

And the last few tickets are up for grabs for the festival event on Thursday, compered by Blackpool funnyman Phil Walker.

Voted City Life Comedian of the Year when he launched himself onto the mainstream comedy circuit - an accolade also bestowed upon Steve Coogan and Peter Kay - Phil’s career has taken him to locations including a Portacabin on Mount Alice in the Falklands, Unst in the Shetland Isles, Afghanistan and Blackpool’s Comedy Station club.

Phil said: “I’ve played to some tough crowds in my time but they were never armed to the teeth with machine guns before, thank God they liked me. And Afghanistan was the same!”

He’ll be introducing Grand Theatre pantomime star Steve Royle, Martin Mor, and Phil Ellis.

Martin comes from Northern Ireland and after a successful career as a circus performer, turned his attention on the unsuspecting comedy world.

He’s now much sought-after on the UK comedy circuit, and has performed in front of members of the Royal family - as well as a turn in front of inmates of an Italian prison.

And expect a twist from Phil Ellis, a popular storytelling observational comedian who always brings something different to a comedy night

The comedy night is the second event in the festival.

Tickets for the show are priced £25 and include a pint and a hotpot supper.
