Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
Stand-up comedian Joel Dommett has announced details of a 2020 UK tour.
The newly announced run kicks off in Derby on 19 February 2020, taking in a total of 17 shows across through to May 2020.
Fans can purchase tickets to the newly announced tour early in our presale.
The presale opens at 10:00 on Friday 11 October 2019.
The new tour marks the first time Joel has hit the road since the release of his 30-minute This Is What I’m Capable Of special as part of Netflix’s Comedians Of The World series earlier this year.
The comic won plaudits for the special, in which he details some of the most painfully embarrassing moments of his life with Chortle describing it as an “amusing half-hour of cheerful confession”, in a four-star review.
Since breaking through on the circuit in the early 2010s, Dommett has become one of the UK’s most popular comedians. He regularly appears at Edinburgh Fringe Festival and has performed to audiences across the globe.
His career received a huge boost in 2016 when he appeared on the ITV reality competition I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!, finishing as runner up which led to him hosting the ITV2 companion show I’m A Celebrity Extra Camp.
A regular on British TV screens, his presenting credits include Joel And Nish Vs The World, Singletown and Live In Chelsea.
Earlier this year it was announced the Joel is set to present the upcoming UK production of the worldwide smash hit music gameshow The Masked Singer for ITV.
Aside from TV, Joel achieved a place on the Sunday Times Bestseller list in 2018 with his first book It’s Not Me It’s Them, and the comedian also co-hosts a weekly podcast with Steven Dunne called Teenage Mixtape.
Joel will hit the road early next year to explain to audiences what has happened in his life since his last tour.
