Comedy will be king at the Victoria Theatre this autumn with top comedians queuing up to bring plenty of laughs to the town.
Laughter merchants Jimmy Carr, Omid Djalili, Noel Fielding and Jon Richardson are set to have audiences rolling in the aisles when they bring their latest tours to Halifax. Tickets go on sale today, Friday, for Mighty Boosh star Noel Fielding’s unique brand of stand-up comedy, live animation and music - as well as some of his best-known TV characters.
Noel is taking to the stage for his first live show in five years and demand for seats for the October 24 show is expected to be high. The Mighty Boosh, with Noel and Julian Barratt, was described as the ‘funniest comedy double-act in Britain’, became an instant hit with TV audiences and was nominated for numerous comedy awards.
Noel has also worked on a number of solo projects including Noel’s Fielding’s Luxury Comedy and has made appearances in The IT Crowd, Nathan Barley, How Not to Live Your Life and Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow. He has been team captain on the last four series of the long-running music show Never Mind the Buzzcocks.
Jimmy Carr returns to the Victoria Theatre on October 3 with Omid Djalili, on tour with his show Iranalamadingdong, two days later on October 5. After a sell-out West End residency and a sold-out season at the Edinburgh Festival, the comedian and recent star of the TV programme ‘Splash’ talks about growing older, relationships and celebrity in his new show.
Lancashire comedian Jon Richardson will be in town on November 8.
Sian Johnson, of the Victoria Theatre, said: “Halifax has a great tradition of comedy with some of the biggest names starting out at our monthly Dick & Liddy’s comedy club including John Bishop, Alan Carr and Ross Noble.” Tel: 01422 351158.
