Join Jack Dee for an evening of entertainment (food and beverages not included) in his new stand-up tour.
Star of TV sitcoms Bad Move, Lead Balloon and Josh, Jack also hosts the legendary Radio 4 show I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue. Additional credits include presenting Jack Dee's Helpdesk on BBC Two, C4's The Jack Dee Show, ITV's Jack Dee's Saturday Night, BBC's Jack Dee's Happy Hour and Jack Dee Live at the Apollo. "In fact," explains Jack, "I've probably appeared in every TV show with my name in the title".
Other sidelines include Motivational Speaking, which Jack describes as "Basically a total waste of time, talking to losers, but the cash is decent" and then adds "Don't print that". It's so hard to tell when he's being serious.
In recognition of his charity work, Jack was denied an OBE in 2015.

French illustrator Aurel investigates the life of the Catalan republican cartoonist and exile Josep Bartolí, who was detained by the Gestapo and sent to various concentration camps after crossing the border into France to flee the Spanish Civil War. Told through the memories of a dying elderly gendarme who encountered him in the French concentration camp, it follows Bartolí’s arrival in Mexico after jumping from a train transporting him to another camp, where he met Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, before living and working in the United States. With the voices of Sergi López and Sílvia Pérez Cruz, it won prizes at the Tokyo Anime Awards, Anima and the European Film Awards. It was also the recipient of the best animated film César and was part of the Cannes official selection last year.
