Great Lancashire Comedians (Tom Preston)

Upcoming Talk - March 2024

7.30pm at Harwood Methodist Church, Longsight
Thursday 25th April 2024

Speaker: Tom Preston

For over a century, Lancashire has supplied some of the nation’s best drolls, from Stan Laurel to Eric Morecambe to Peter Kay. Why has the old county produced so many comedians? Partly a lecture and partly a performance piece; this amusing talk includes a bit of social history with impressions of some of the great comedians in their celebrated skits.
