** JOE PASQUALE ** ANDY PARSONS ** PHIL JUPITUS** JON RICHARDSON** DARA Ó BRIAIN

In-keeping with their history as reputable comedy venues, Leeds Grand Theatre and City Varieties Music Hall (CVMH) bring several notable names to Leeds in September and announce two new acts for 2018.

September 2017 at CVMH will see Joe Pasquale take to the stage on Saturday the 2nd in his one-man show, The Devil in Disguise, that apparently ‘defies description’. Andy Parsons urges people to put on their lucky pants and party shoes, and get out for the night to see his show, Peak Bullsh*t, on Wednesday 20th, and comedian, poet, improviser and TV stalwart Phill Jupitus, will entertain crowds with tales, laughs and diversions on Thursday 28th. Audiences are encouraged to watch in delight and/or horror as the experienced funny man drags laughs out of the chaos of his own life and the uncertain world that surrounds it inJuplicity.

2018 will see comedy giants Jon Richardson and Dara Ó Briain take to the Leeds Grand Theatre stage.

Jon Richardson, British Comedy Award nominee and star of Live At The Apollo and 8 Out Of 10 Cats, is embarking on a nationwide tour to complain about the state of the world and offer no solutions. Since Jon’s last show he has become a husband and father, seen the UK vote to leave the EU and watched the rise of Donald Trump, all of which leaves him asking one question, why does it seem that no one else alive can correctly load a dishwasher?

Jon will be appearing at Leeds Grand Theatre in The Old Man on Sunday 8th April 2018. Tickets go on sale on Wednesday 2nd August 2017.

Dara is one of the most recognisable faces on British TV as host of the hugely successful Mock The Week, Star Gazing Live, Robotwars and Go8Bit. Catch one of the most charismatic, intelligent, fast-talking and downright funny live performers On Sunday 6th and Monday 7th May 2018 in his new stand-up show, Voice of Reason. Tickets go on sale on Wednesday 2nd August 2017.
