Legendary cricket player and commentator Jonathan Agnew MBE has set Twitter alight in recent days with his witty and much loved remarks on England cricketer Alastair Cook’s retirement.
And on Tuesday 2 October you can experience all his wit and wisdom live at PAC when he brings his An Evening with Aggers show to the venue.
Agnew is a key figure in the world of cricket, both as a former professional player and world-renowned commentator.
This autumn he goes it alone in his first ever solo UK tour regaling audiences with some of his special memories and amusing anecdotes.
Described as a “master broadcaster”, his consummate skills on air have proved electric on stage in previous shows alongside his prickly commentating partner Geoffrey Boycott, spin legend Graeme Swann, Indian’s ‘Little Master’ Sunil Gavaskar, bad boy of English cricket Phil Tufnell and the gloriously eccentric David ‘Bumble’ Lloyd.
Aggers takes the audience on a trip down memory lane, waxing lyrical about his extensive and entertaining career on the cricket pitch, as well as his many years on TV screens and radio stations around the world.
As a commentator and broadcaster on the BBC’s Test Match Special slot, A View From The Boundary, he has interviewed many stars of stage, screen and beyond, including two prime ministers, several rock stars, film legends, writers, comedians and a boy wizard.
The show’s producer, Simon Fielder said: “We can guarantee that anyone coming to see this show will have a thoroughly good time.
“It appeals to cricket fans and non-lovers of the game alike. You don’t have to be into the sport to enjoy the stories and humour of this highly entertaining evening, it will appeal to anyone who enjoys a good yarn.”
An Evening with Aggers takes place at the Pocklington Arts Centre on Tuesday 2 October.
The shows are also raising money for the Professional Cricket Association (PCA) Benevolent Fund, a charity supporting past and current players and their dependents during times of illness or hardship.
