Dom Joly

SOLD OUT

Dom Joly is best known as the creator of Trigger Happy TV.

And now the writer and broadcaster is undertaking his first UK tour since 2011, giving fans a rare opportunity to see him live.

Dom will be talking about his exploits as a serial globe-trotting and seeker of dangerous travel spots. From North Korea though the Congo and Syria to Chernobyl, he's visited some of the most unusual places on the planet. Joly famously attended school with Osama Bin Laden and armed with a trusty Powerpoint, fans can expect his holiday snaps to provide comedy and a sense of danger.

Why? The best-selling author will meet fans after the show to sign copies of his latest book, The Hezbollah Hiking Club

Stephen Bailey - Can't be Bothered

Stephen Bailey has made a name for himself for being a little gossip.

This year he’s grown up and decided to have a conversation with you (but a funny one – he’s still Channel 5’s darling) - about everything that is going on in the world.

Host of Channel 5’s Celebs on the Farm, Stephen has appeared on ITV’s Coronation Street, ITV2’s The Stand Up Sketch Show, BBC2’s Live at the Apollo and The Apprentice: You’re Fired - it’s been a very big year for Stephen, he’s even bought a new microwave.

He’s the best mate you want to chat to at the pub and he thinks the world has gone mad. This show is bit of storytelling, some inappropriate anecdotes and more sincerity than he’s ever dared have! What more do you want? He’s basically Holly Willoughby.

WHY? ‘An outrageous, hilarious hour of comedy’ British Comedy Guide

‘Stephen’s show was hilarious from the first line, and for the whole performance I don’t think a single joke died’ Voice Magazine

Age guidance 16+ years.

Studio
£14.50 (£12.50 conc)

Harry Baker - I am 10,000

Mathematician-turned-world-slam-champion Harry Baker turns 10,000 days old, celebrating numbers, words and life itself.
