Comic Alan Carr, star of Channel 4’s ‘Chatty Man’ returns to the road for his first UK Tour in over four years.

Come and join Alan as he tries out new material for his forthcoming 33 date UK and Ireland arena tour, Spexy Beast Live 2011.

Alan’s been described as “the spiritual son of Frankie Howard” (City Life). His formative years were spent working in a supermarket as well as a call centre for lost and stolen credit cards. In 2002, his Edinburgh Festival show ‘Me ‘Ead’s Spinnin’ earned a four star review in Edinburgh bible, The List as well as the The Daily Telegraph’s Critic’s Choice. There were no surprises then, in 2003, when ‘I Love Alan Carr’ was rated a four star show in both The Scotsman and The Independent, but it was at the Edinburgh Festival in 2005 that things really started to happen for our Alan. He earned five star reviews across the board in The Independent, The Scotsman and Three Weeks as well as numerous ‘Pick Of The Fringe’ accolades. It was here that Alan came to the attention of the Channel 4 bigwigs.

Alan has gone from strength to strength appearing at comedy festivals all over the world, Melbourne, Montreal’s ‘Just For Laughs’ and Kilkenny as well as touring the length and breadth of Great Britain with his ‘Tooth Fairy’ tour culminating in a three night sell-out run at the Hammersmith Apollo. Alan doesn’t just perform for commoners, he has performed for her Majesty The Queen at the Royal Variety Performance too.

Tickets for the shows at York’s Grand Opera House on September 4 and 5 are £28.50 from box office on 0844 871 3024 or online at www.grandoperahouseyork.org.uk
