Josh Widdicombe to perform at The Playhouse
PUBLISHED: 12:00 30 April 2015
COMEDIAN Josh Widdicombe will pay a visit to Weston in October when he makes a return to stand-up.
The star of Channel 4’s The Last Leg is back on the road with his new tour What Do I Do Now?
Since he has been away from stand-up, Widdicombe has been taking part in a host of radio and television shows – and now he has a chance to joke about those experiences on stage.
Widdicombe is known for his observational comedy, where he addresses everyday frustrations with some self-deprecating humour.
The Last Leg, which he co-hosts with Australian comedian Adam Hills and presenter Alex Brooker, has been nominated for numerous awards.
The show launched in 2012 as part of Channel 4’s London Paralympic Games coverage, and provided an alternative review of the day’s events.
The show continues to be aired throughout the year, where Widdicombe, Brooker and Hills provide a witty take on current affairs.
Widdicombe also makes appearances on the BBC’s Mock The Week, QI and Have I Got News For You.
He is also the host of BBC Radio 5 Live’s Saturday morning sport show Fighting Talk.
His first sitcom, Josh, will be broadcast on BBC 3 this autumn.
Widdicombe first began performing in 2008, and reached the final of So You Think You’re Funny at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in the same year.
He also won a series of Celebrity Mastermind in 2013, where his favourite band Blur was his specialist subject.
The tour covers 40 dates from September to December.
Josh Widdicombe will be at The Playhouse in High Street on October 5 at 8pm.
Tickets, priced £18.50, are available from the box office on 01934 645544 or online at www.theplayhouse.co.uk
