Lee Mack in Bristol
PUBLISHED: 16:20 17 November 2010
Critically-acclaimed comedian Lee Mack will return to Bristol for two nights from November 22, the same day as the DVD release of his tour, recorded at the Hammersmith Apollo.
His tour, cheekily named Going Out, has encapsulated the Colston Hall in its extension, after his initial one-night stand at the Bristol Hippodrome in February.
Most of these, including his upcoming performance at the Colston Hall, have sold out, meaning Mack will play to more than 170,000 people in his massive 93-date tour.
He is no stranger to stand-up. Mack was first spotted in 1995, having won So You Think You’re Funny? at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and went onto win the Time Out award for Best Live Comedy in 2000.
Between these he got his first taste of television success in Channel 4’s stand-up show Gas and the immensely-popular Sketch Show, in which he was a lead writer and performer.
He went on to present They Think It’s All Over and Radio 2’s The Lee Mack Show, but is perhaps best-known for being a team captain on Would I Lie To You?
This year has been a very busy time for Mack, who has been writing and recording the fourth series of his award-winning sitcom Not Going Out between tour dates – but it is just fuel for more fun.
Here is to another tour soon... just don’t sit in the front row.
Both shows are sold-out.
