Guild Hall Comedy Jimeoin/Sarah Millican/Ed Byrne Tomorrow, February 19 and February 21

A week of top comedy kicks off at Preston Guild Hall tomorrow night with the appearance of Jimeoin, the stand-up comedian and actor at the Charter Theatre.

He’s followed next Wednesday by the country’s current queen of comedy, Sarah Millican – as voted for in the British Comedy Awards.

BBC2 star Millican has even been chosen as one of the 100 most powerful women in the country by Radio 4’s Women’s Hour.

So find out here what she thinks are the essentials for a dirty weekend, the easiest way to blend in to posh restaurants and how to teach a pensioner to swear!

Next Friday sees the venue’s week of fun rounded off by Ed Byrne a self-confessed miserablist since he was 23.

Now in his 40s he embraces middle age with open arms and has declared: “I am in my 40s. HEAR ME ROAR!”
