Comedian Ross Noble is set to perform his El Hablador show at the Bristol Hippodrome later on this year.

The comedian, who is known for appearing on BBC One’s TV series Have I Got News for You, will showcase his 16th UK tour from September until December.

The show will be composed of Ross telling stories throughout the event, including occasionally speaking offbeat and going on additional tangents.

Ross has announced 68 tour dates to be performed across the country so far.

When describing the show, Ross said: “Expect the unexpected. Unless you’ve seen me before, then you know what to expect.

“But I might not do that. But then again, I might. I expect it will be one of those two options.”

He will also walk through a big inflatable skull onto the stage to open his show.

Ross is a stand-up comic from Newcastle and has been performing on stage since the age of 15.

He won an Australian Barry Award in 2002 and a Time Out Award for Best Live Stand-Up in 2000, he was also nominated for a Perrier Award, which is now known as an Edinburgh Comedy Award, in 1999.

He has performed 15 sell-out tours, has nine stand-up DVD releases, and has previously been ranked 10th in Channel 4’s poll of 100 Greatest Stand-Ups.

Ross also recently performed as the lab-assistant character Igor in a reproduction of Mel Brooks’ West End show, Young Frankenstein.

The musical was performed in London’s Garrick Theatre and ran until February of this year.

Ross was nominated for an Olivier Award and won a WhatsOnStage Award for Best Supporting Actor in the musical.

The comedian also took part in motorsport-challenge the Scottish Six Days Trial, which was aired exclusively on TV entertainment channel Dave.

He also appears regularly on BBC One’s TV panel show QI, and has appeared on The Graham Norton Show and BBC Radio 4’s programme Just a Minute.

Ross will also be performing at Yeovil’s Octagon Theatre on September 13 at 7.30pm.

The comedy show will be held on October 16 at the Bristol Hippodrome and starts at 8pm.

Tickets, from £26.25, are available at or on 08448 713012.
