Top comedians set for The Grand and City Varieties

Dara O’Brian, Jon Richardson, Phil Jupitus, Andy Parsons and Joe Pasquale to play Leeds.

Leeds Grand Theatre and City Varieties Music Hall have announced several notable names to play the city this season and next year.

Joe Pasquale takes to the stage at Leeds City Varieties on Saturday 2nd September in his one-man show, The Devil in Disguise, that apparently ‘defies description’. Andy Parsons urges people to put on their lucky pants and party shoes, and get out for the night to see his show, Peak Bullsh*t, on Wednesday 20th, and comedian, poet, improviser and TV stalwart Phil Jupitus, will entertain crowds with tales, laughs and diversions on Thursday 28th.

Jon Richardson will be appearing at Leeds Grand Theatre in The Old Man on Sunday 8th April 2018. The British Comedy Award nominee and star of Live At The Apollo and 8 Out Of 10 Cats, is embarking on a nationwide tour to complain about the state of the world and offer no solutions. Since Jon’s last show he has become a husband and father, seen the UK vote to leave the EU and watched the rise of Donald Trump, all of which leaves him asking one question, why does it seem that no one else alive can correctly load a dishwasher? Tickets go on sale on Wednesday 2nd August 2017.

Dara O’Briain is one of the most recognisable faces on British TV as host of the hugely successful Mock The Week, Star Gazing Live, Robotwars and Go8Bit. You can catch one of the most charismatic, intelligent, fast-talking and downright funny live performers On Sunday 6th and Monday 7th May 2018 in his new stand-up show, Voice of Reason. Tickets go on sale on Wednesday 2nd August 2017.
