Freya Parker & Jack Lewis Evans at Arch 12 | Wed 10 May | 7pm | £6

More comedy double bills in the former railway arch of Runaway Brewery as Freya Parker and Jack Lewis Evans (as Barry Shafto) head to the temporary home of A Lovely Time on Dantzic Street. Both comics are fresh off the back of sell out shows at Mach Fest in Wales and promise a fresh take on stand-up, be it Evans as paranormal exterminator Barry Shafto and Freya Parker’s solo outing after huge success with sketch duo Lazy Susan.
