There’s a last chance to catch a couple of great acts before they head further north to the Fringe in August with Manchester’s own The Delightful Sausage and London based Sunil Patel. Patel has been described as both one of ‘the Fringe’s great alternative comedians’ by EdFest and ‘a psychopath’ by The Scotsman, head down to decide for yourself which of those binary choices it is. The Sausage meanwhile have been honing their act at their monthly comedy night for the past year or so, a great chance for die hards to see it all forced together in one lumpen casing.
