Comedy with 'Lefty Scum'

Comedy, music and revolutionary socialism reunite when three of the UK’s most joyfully rabble-rousing acts appear as Lefty Scum at The Dukes.

Josie Long and Jonny & The Baptists make a welcome return to the Lancaster theatre after appearing there last spring and this time they’ll be joined by acclaimed protest musician, Grace Petrie.

Josie is a well known face on the comedy scene and appears regularly on radio and television. She presents Radio 4’s popular documentary series Short Cuts which is one of the top downloaded podcasts and stars in Radio 4’s Romance and Adventure and All of the Planet’s Wonders.

Jonny & The Baptists – whose real names are Jonny Donahoe and Paddy Gerveers – have rapidly become one of the UK's hottest live musical comedy acts and have topped the iTunes comedy chart with their single, Farage.

Grace first exploded on to the national protest scene in 2010 with the emotive anthem Farewell to Welfare. Her unique takes on life, love and politics, and her warmth and wit have won over audiences everywhere, and she has quietly become one of the most respected and prolific songwriters working in the UK today.

Lefty Scum is recommended for anyone aged 14 plus and tickets are priced £13.50/£11 concessions.
