After years away from stand-up tours, the droll and deadpan comedian Jack Dee has gone back on the road to get away from the kids!
He will play Aberdeen’s Music Hall on Sunday, October 13 and tickets to share his agonizing over the slightest of annoyances and misdemeanours go on sale to APA Friends on Thursday (June 6) and to the public on Friday (June 7) online at www.boxofficeaberdeen.com, by phone at 01224 641122 and at Aberdeen Box Office at the Music Hall and His Majesty’s Theatre.
Explaining why he was touring again, the laid-back funnyman known for his sarcastic wit said: “I want to spend less time with my family.”
While it has been more than six years since his last UK tour, Jack has rarely been off the country’s television screens.
As well as co-writing and starring in four series of BBC 2’s hit sitcom Lead Balloon, hosting Jack Dee: Live at the Apollo, which was nominated for a BAFTA in 2006, and hosting The Jack Dee Show, Jack Dee's Saturday Night and Jack Dee's Happy Hour, he won Celebrity Big Brother 2001.
He has also appeared on shows like QI, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, 8 out of 10 Cats and Have I Got News For You, hosted Radio 4’s legendary I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue, and written his memoirs, Thanks For Nothing, which he modestly dedicated to himself - “Without whom none of this would have been possible”.
“Jack Dee has taken grumpiness to a new level and I know fans of his razor-sharp wit will be delighted to get the chance to see him up-close-and-personal in the comparatively intimate setting of the Music Hall,” said Aberdeen Performing Arts press manager Joyce Summers.
“We are confident there will be a high demand for tickets for such a top comedy gig, so we are expecting to be very busy on Thursday and Friday!”
