Simply put, Frank will redefine how you see comedy.
After successfully touring his solo show “Shoes” around various comedy festivals (including a wondrous, 4 star performance at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival), he has decided to come to Oswestry… because he’s a maverick like that.
Shoes featured stories about dating and relationships, told via the medium of shoes.
As Frank says himself, “It’s better than it sounds.”
No shoes will be harmed during his performance, although we take no responsibility for sides getting split.

What have Russell Howard, Miranda Hart and Tim Minchin got in common?
They have all had 1 star reviews.
Nigel holds a yearly show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival called “The Worst Show on the Fringe” – a compilation show for acts who have received such reviews – usually due to drunken audiences, technical failures, miserable reviewers… or because they were rubbish.

There’s no real way to describe Paul.
He loves drinking milk.
He’s a new comedian who is already barging his way onto quality line-ups (such as this one).
He really loves drinking milk.
His choice in knitwear is fabulous.
Knitwear and milk do NOT mix.
•”Absolutely brilliant” – Rhyl Comedy Club
•Cheshire Cat Comedy new comedian of the year 2018 runner up
He’s been performing on the comedy circuit for over 9 years and has developed a following for his uber-alternative, prop-based pun-lunacy.
Cringy levels of sheer genius at 100 MPH with more home made props than you’ve ever seen before.
Expect corny jokes, don’t expect observational humour.
If you don’t “get” Roger Swift, then you don’t “get” comedy.
