A-List Comedy Stars LIVE at The Grand!
A blistering line-up of Top Comedy Stars are coming straight from your TV to the Blackpool Grand Theatre stage…
Buckle up for a cracking comedy rollercoaster ride that will leave you breathless with laughter as four comedy legends come together in one hilarious night in Jongleurs Legends on Sunday 2 October. Jarred Christmas has had audiences around the world howling over his hysterical and relatable past experiences, punctuated by his quick wit and impeccable comic timing. Former (double award-winning) Time Out Comedian of the Year, Paul Tonkinson, has long upheld his reputation as one of the finest stand-ups the UK has to offer. Ninia Benjamin was catapulted to stardom as one-third of BBC2′s 3 Non-Blondes and is a tour-de-force of comedy… she’s outrageously rude, but above all sidesplittingly funny. Mike Gunn‘s misspent youth and series of grim jobs has cultivated his cuttingly funny cynical outlook on life. A self-confessed pessimist, he describes himself as “not a natural choice for a career in laughter”. What a quality quartet of comedy! Jongleurs Legends is not to be missed! Age Recommendation – 14yrs+
