COMEDIAN Lucy Pearman has had to call off Thursday night's Fruit Loop gig at the Burning Duck Comedy Club, in The Basement, City Screen, York.

Pearman performed a preview of this show, the story of a worm who has completely misunderstood her existence, at Burning Duck's inaugural Big Egg Comedy festival last year. "Unfortunately we've had to cancel this week's gig as Lucy is now unable to make it, but we might be able to arrange a preview of her 2019 Edinburgh Fringe show," says promoter Al Greaves.
