Mo Gilligan announces huge world tour for 2020

Catch one of the UK's biggest breakout comedy stars in a city near you next autumn.

No matter how many laughs you’ve had this year, there’s Mo coming in 2020!

It’s been nearly a year since stand-up Mo Gilligan wrapped up his phenomenally successful Coupla Cans tour, and that’s far too long for fans to be without his high-energy comedy.

Thankfully, fresh from his smash Netflix special Momentum and his own Channel 4 TV series The Lateish Show with Mo Gilligan, he’s announced he’ll be going out on the road again with his new live show There’s Mo to Life.

Mo will kick things off at O2 Academy Leeds on 8 October 2020 and play across the country, including three dates at London’s Eventim Apollo, before wrapping up at Birmingham Arena on 4 December 2020. From there, the rest of the world gets a little mo’ Mo, as he heads to the US, Australia and Europe.

Expect There’s Mo to Life to be full of his unique style of stand-up with its stunning physicality.

Mo has had an incredibly life-changing few years. He first made his name online, posting viral videos of sketches while juggling his full-time job working in a clothes store. When customers started recognising the funnyman, Mo knew he had to quit and follow his dreams of making comedy a full-time career.


Retail’s loss was comedy’s gain. Mo has appeared on TV shows such as The Russell Howard Hour, Live at the Apollo and Rob Delaney’s Stand Up Central. He’s also co-host of Channel 4’s huge hit The Big Narstie Show and is currently recording series 2.

Over the past year, Mo has been nominated for numerous awards as well as been named The Funniest Man in Britain by The Times.

“My favourite thing is performing live to those who like what I do,” said Mo, who is excited to get back out on the road again.
