COMEDIAN Mark Steel will make Lancaster and the quirks of similar towns and cities the butt of his jokes when he appears at The Dukes on December 3.

Based on his award winning Radio 4 series, Mark Steel’s In Town is a celebration of small town life in a country of cloned high streets.

Mark will reflect on different towns across the UK and delve in to their history, people and idiosyncrasies in what will be a bespoke stand-up show for Lancaster.

A Dukes spokesman said: “His observations on the small, sometimes forgotten, towns of Britain go right to the heart of British culture today, championing the very people who shape the places we live in now.”
