Count Arthur Strong: Is Anybody Out There? @ The Dukes
Oct 17 @ 8:00 pm

web

Presented by Live Nation Komedia Entertainment

As well as being the all-round entertainer we all know and love from the telly, Count Arthur Strong is also a lifelong fan of astronomy, since having been given a microscope, or whatever it is they use, for Christmas when he was a small precocious baby. In fact, it’s said the first word he spoke was ‘Uranus’.

In this, his brand-new show, he seamlessly combines the very best showbiz entertainment you’ll currently find, in the world, possibly? As he wrestles with some of the big questions that other all-round entertainers shy away from. Such as:

Are we alone in the universe?

Is there life on Mars bars?

2lbs of potatoes.

Packet of ginger nuts.

Don’t lose this shopping list.

“Do not miss this not to be missed type of thing! If I wasn’t in the show I’d definitely be in the audience watching myself intently. Laughing and learning in equal measure. Thoroughly happy to pay the admission fee and definitely not asking for a refund. Also not rustling sweet wrappers and fiddling with my sodding telephone with a gormless expression on my face. See you there!” – Arthur

Jack Dee “Off The Telly” at Lancaster Grand Theatre @ Lancaster Grand
Oct 30 @ 7:30 pm – 9:45 pm
Jack Dee "Off The Telly" at Lancaster Grand Theatre @ Lancaster Grand

Off The Telly: Jack Dee

Everyone’s favourite grumbler, Jack Dee, is returning to the stand-up stage this autumn with his first solo tour in six years. Join Jack for an evening of entertainment (food and beverages are not included) as he hits the road with his eagerly awaited brand new UK tour, Off The Telly.

“In these difficult and uncertain times, people need hope – a ray of sunshine to brighten their day. And that’s very much where I come in” says Jack.

Jack’s most recent solo UK tour, Jack Dee Live, travelled the country for 18 months to sold-out audiences delighted to be entertained by him. This was followed by the release of his sixth stand-up DVD for Universal Pictures (UK) – Jack Dee So What? Live.

His last foray on to the live stage saw him bring a brand new type of live show to audiences in 2015 with Jack Dee’s Helpdesk. Jack and his panel of special guests helped to shed light on an array of the audience’s personal problems, dilemmas and issues with nothing pre-planned. Met with critical success, Jack Dee’s Helpdesk was commissioned by BBC Two and included series on the General Election, the US Presidential Election and the Brexit Referendum.

Most recently Jack starred in two series of ITV sitcom Bad Move, created and co-written alongside fellow Lead Balloon writer Pete Sinclair. Bad Move was a ratings success for ITV with the series averaging 4 million viewers.
