“Gary Meikle is a naturally talented comedian who is already well on this way to the top.

“He has been described as a comedian who you can watch and watch again as he’s wonderfully funny, engaging, sincere and just gets better and better.

“Sleek, instantly likeable and gloriously understated, you genuinely believe he’s a good friend relaying an event that happened just between the two of you.

“Mark Smith might have the plainest name in all of comedy but that works in his favour when his timing and delivery as a comic are to die for.”

Doors open at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £13 in advance, £15.50 on the door, from www.blackpoolgrand.co.uk
