Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
Award-winning US stand up Alex Edelman has confirmed he’ll be taking his latest show – Just For Us – on tour next year.
The new run kicks off in Salford on Friday 31 January 2020 and will see the comedian tour across the UK throughout February and into March.
Fans can get tickets 24 hours early through our presale.
The presale opens at 10:00 on Wednesday 30 October 2019.
In August 2018 the comedian performed Just For Us to sold out audiences at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, picking up a nomination for the prestigious Edinburgh Comedy Award For Best Show.
Just For Us was also a hit with critics with The Guardian writing: “Boasting technical flair and a precocious authority, Edelman’s comedy manages to capture the voice of Generation Y”.
Chortle added further praise stating: “Every story is a precision-engineered Rolls-Royce of a routine, perfectly timed and constructed, each morsel of information released just at the right moment”.
Further acclaim came when Edelman took the show to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, taking home the highly sought after Herald Angel award.
Just For Us is Alex’s third show to date and follows his debut Millenial which earned him the Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer, and its follow up, Everything Handed To You.
After receiving rave reviews at Fringe, Everything Handed To You was filmed in its entirety for the BBC comedy series Live at the BBC and is currently streaming on Netflix.
His other UK television appearances include The John Bishop Show, Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled and Roast Battle.
The stand up will bring his latest show Just For Us to venues across the UK early next year.
