Jack Shanik, who was described as having superbly formulated and consistently funny one-liners by Back Street Heroes Magazine, is expected to probe the limits of making sense in the comedy sketch.

Jim Bayes, described as one to look out for by the BBC, will then take centre stage and offer insights into darker moments by sharing tales about wrestling his demons while holding a plate of tofu in one hand and a pint in the other.

Jack Shanik said: “Preston has always been a favourite place to play, so it’s grand to be back as part of the Tringe and we’re delighted to have a run of five nights at the Guild Ale House, a really intimate venue.”

Jim Bayes said: “We are looking forward to seeing some familiar faces and hopefully plenty of new ones.”

The comedy shows will run up to 30 July.

Doors open at 7.30pm each night and the show will start at 8pm.

The event is not ticketed, however it is a ‘pay what you want’ event.
