Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
Due to popular demand, an additional week has now been added to Catherine Tate’s West End residency at Wyndham’s Theatre.
The shows will now run from the 7 – 26 January 2019.
The critically acclaimed and award-winning comedian makes a welcome return to the West End, following on from a sold-out tour across Australia and New Zealand.
She’ll be bringing characters from her successful BBC series The Catherine Tate Show with her, including favourites Nan Taylor, Bernie the Irish nurse, Geordie Georgie, Essex girl Sam and, of course, the notorious argumentative teenager.
“I’m excited and delighted to be bringing the show to the West End,” Catherine Tate announces.
“The Catherine Tate Show Live?” Nan interjects. “What a load of old s**t!”
The Catherine Tate Show first aired on the BBC in 2004, running for a total of three series and 22 episodes.
The sketch show won a series of awards in its time, including two British Comedy Awards and a National Television Award.
