Comedy At York Opera House

Dylan Moran

Saturday 28 May

How can it be you have spent a whole ten minutes staring at a banana?

Why do you always do stuff like that? Why do you never do the other really great things where it’s much, much better – and afterwards you don’t want to saw off your own face and post it back to yourself with not quite enough stamps?

Also, learn how to make breakfast not even knowing you are out of bed. Diagnose the mirror, reason with the mice and boil yoghurt blindfolded. Enjoy the fruits of hurtling cognitive decline and your neighbours sprawling ghastliness, absence of humanity and so, so much more.

These times have not been easy.

Al Murray The Pub Landlord: Gig For Victory

Thursday 1 September

As the dust settles and we emerge blinking into the dawn of a new year, the men and women of this great country will need answers. Answers that they know they need, answers to questions they never knew existed.

And when that moment comes, who better to show the way, to provide those answers, than the people’s man of the people, the Pub Landlord? Steeped in the deep and ancient barroom wisdom of countless lock ins, the Pub Landlord is there to show the way.  Wherever you are, he will – within sensible travel limits and theatre booking policy – come, offering people thirsty for common sense a full pint of the good stuff.

David O’Doherty : whoa is me

Monday 31 October

Here he comes again, trotting on to the stage with all of the misplaced confidence of a waiter with no pad. There’ll be lots of talking, some apologising and some songs on a glued together plastic keyboard from 1986.  As seen on Channel 4’s Along for the Ride with David O’Doherty, 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown and BBC’s Live At the Apollo.

Harry Hill: Pedigree Fun!

Wednesday 2 November

Harry is back with brand-new amazing jokes in an all-singing, all-dancing one-man spectacular.

“I hadn’t realised how much I missed performing live until lockdown stopped me from doing it,” says Harry, “It’s great to be going back on stage and the good news is I am planning a very silly show.”

Audiences will meet Harry’s new baby elephant, Sarah, and Ian, The Information Worm.

Harry will also be joined by Stouffer the Cat (his famous sidekick) who commented “what can I tell you? When Harry calls you say yes – end of!”

Dave GormanPowerpoint To The People

Saturday 5 November

Dave Gorman, the man behind Dave TV’s hit show Modern Life Is Goodish as well as Are You Dave Gorman? and Googlewhack Adventure, is back on the road with a brand new live show, Powerpoint To The People

The ‘high priest of the comedy Powerpoint talk’ (The Times) is touring again – as much as anything to demonstrate that a powerpoint presentation doesn’t have to involve a man in a grey suit standing behind a lectern and saying ‘next slide please’. We’ve all had enough of that, so let’s put it all behind us and never speak of it again – there are far more important things to analyse. Well… they’re more important in Dave’s head anyway.
