The country’s most irrepressible innkeeper, Al Murray, is heading for Aberdeen to serve up his premier brew of ale-inspired acumen and bar-room buffoonery to a Music Hall audience on Friday, November 1.
He is taking his The Only Way is Epic show to the city centre following a critically acclaimed, sell-out Edinburgh Festival Fringe and tickets for the Aberdeen show go on sale on Friday next week (May 31) online at www.boxofficeaberdeen.com, by phone at 01224 641122 and at Aberdeen Box Office at the Music Hall and His Majesty’s Theatre.
One of the most recognisable and successful comics in the UK with his alter-ego, The Pub Landlord, Al’s latest TV series Compete for the Meat (Dave), saw teams battle it out to win the coveted prize of a frozen chicken.
His British Comedy Award Winning ITV1 series Al Murray’s Happy Hour has delighted both viewers and critics alike with his no nonsense treatment of his celebrity guests. He is also one of the few stand-up comedians to be asked by ITV to perform two Audience Withs....
Al’s sitcom Time Gentlemen Please (Sky One) has become something of a modern day cult classic and his series, Al Murray’s Multiple Personality Disorder (ITV1) saw him introduce a whole host of new characters and demonstrate his vast comedic range.
His other TV appearances as The Pub Landlord include three appearances on The Royal Variety Performance (ITV1), hosting both Live at the Apollo (BBC1) and Edinburgh and Beyond (Paramount Comedy Channel) and his edgy quiz show Fact Hunt (ITV1). He has also released six best selling live DVDs My Gaff, My Rules; Glass of White Wine for the Lady; Giving it Both Barrels; Live At The Palladium; The Beautiful British Tour and Barrel of Fun.
Out of character, Al is the host of 7 Day Sunday a weekly programme for BBC Radio 5, which has just finished its third series. He has also hosted Al Murray's German Adventure (BBC Four), an historical series about the art and culture of Germany (without mentioning the war) and kicked off 2012 with Al Murray's New Year Resolutions on BBC Radio 2.
He has appeared on QI (BBC1), What's So Funny... (Channel 4), That Sunday Night Show (ITV), Frank Skinner's Opinionated (BBC2), Have I Got News For You (BBC1) and The Road To Berlin, a 10 episode documentary series on World War lI for Discovery.
His stand-up tours have seen him sell out the O2 Arena and he has lifted the Perrier Award (after a record four successive nominations) and secured Olivier Award nominations for both of his celebrated sell-out West End runs.
