JOE LYCETT ADDS EXTRA MANCHESTER DATE DUE TO PHENOMENAL DEMAND
I’m About To Lose Control And I Think Joe Lycett Comes To Manchester Palace Theatre TWICE In June 2018!
Joe Lycett, star of Live at the Apollo (BBC One), Taskmaster (Dave) and 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown (C4), is delighted to add even more dates to an already jam packed brand-new UK and Ireland tour, I’m About To Lose Control And I Think Joe Lycett.
The tour begins in Bristol on 13th February 2018, and comes to Manchester Palace Theatre on Saturday 2 June, and an extra date on Wednesday 6 June 2018 has now been announced! Tickets for the additional date go on sale at 10am on Friday 15 September.
The new show will see Joe sharing jokes, paintings and some of the ridiculous internet trolling he’s been up to recently.
Joe said: “Since the last tour I’ve basically just sat on my phone being an annoying berk online so I can’t wait to get off the phone and on the road to tell everyone what I’ve been up to. It’s all absolutely pathetic but some of it is a right laugh.”
After making his comedy debut in 2008, Joe has gone on to secure a string of awards and acclaim for his stand-up, including two Chortle Awards and a nomination for the Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer. He has become a regular face on TV, including appearances on Would I Lie To You? (BBC One), Room 101 (BBC One), The Royal Variety Performance (ITV) and as guest host of Sunday Brunch (C4). He is host of BBC Radio 4 series It’s Not What You Know and brand new forthcoming series Joe Lycett’s Obsessions, and in 2016 released his debut book, Parsnips, Buttered (Hodder & Stoughton), which drew widespread praise and is released in paperback on 7th September.
I’m About To Lose Control And I Think Joe Lycett is Joe’s third nationwide tour after previous total sell-out tours If You Lycett Then You Should Have Put a Ring On It and That’s The Way, A-ha, A-ha, Joe Lycett, the latter of which was released on DVD in late 2016 by Universal Pictures.
Tickets for 6 June 2018 date for I’m About To Lose Control And I Think Joe Lycett go on-sale at 10am on Friday 15 September.
Praise for Joe Lycett
“These excellent routines are greatly enriched by Lycett’s manner: playful, laidback, more like one of us, it feels, than the attention-seeking neurotics you might encounter elsewhere”
Brian Logan, The Guardian
‘What a joy it is to spend an hour with Joe Lycett… Lycett is as affable when he tackles the big topics as he is when he deconstructs the trivial. Arenas surely await’
Alice Jones, The Independent
‘If you want to bet on the next mainstream stand-up star put your shirt on Joe Lycett’
Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard
‘Lycett is cheeky, relaxed, and mixes delightful stories and observations’
Ben Williams, Time Out
