COMIC Alan Carr is returning to the Isle of Man for a special warm up show before his major UK and Ireland tour.
The star of Channel 4’s Alan Carr: Chatty Man will take to the stage at the Villa Marina on Friday, August 5. He will be trying out new material for his forthcoming 33 date UK and Ireland arena tour – his first UK tour in more than four years.
He last performed in the Isle of Man in 2007.
Minister for Community, Culture and Leisure David Cretney MHK: ’I am delighted to confirm another major star will be performing at the Villa Marina in what is quickly becoming the best summer of entertainment the island has seen in a long time.
‘As well as getting to see Alan Carr live at the Villa Marina, this is a great opportunity to enjoy Alan’s new material before anyone else in the UK.’
Since winning the BBC New Comedy Award for Stand-up, Alan Carr has become one of the hottest comedy stars in Britain. The success of the first series of his own TV chat show led to Channel 4 commissioning a further three series plus a 2009 Christmas Special.
Tickets for Alan Carr priced £27.50 are on sale via the ticket hotline on 600555, www.villagaiety.com or the Welcome Centre.
