Catch one of the UK's biggest breakout comedy stars as he prepares for his huge world tour.

As he prepares for the start of his forthcoming world tour, stand-up comedian Mo Gilligan has just confirmed a run of warm-up shows.

Head to the bottom of this article for the comedian’s full list of upcoming shows.

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

It’s been 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 the co-host of Channel 4’s huge hit The Big Narstie Show, which is now airing its third series.

Over the past few years, 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.
