Comedian Joe Lycett has added an extra St Albans date to his 2018 tour.

With limited availability for the stand-up star’s I’m About To Lose Control And I Think Joe Lycett show at The Alban Arena on Thursday, July 19, he will be appearing at the same venue the night before.

Tickets for Joe’s Wednesday, July 18 date in St Albans are due to go on sale this week.

The star of Live at the Apollo (BBC One), Taskmaster (Dave) and 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown (Channel 4) has added 19 extra shows in total to his new tour.

More tickets were sold for Joe’s new tour in the first 24 hours of it going on sale than in the entirety of his last sell-out tour, with a host of venues selling out within an hour of tickets going on sale.

Tickets for the extra shows go on sale at 10am on Friday, September 15 at

Joe said: “Since the last tour I’ve basically just sat on my phone being an annoying berk online so I can’t wait to get off the phone and on the road to tell everyone what I’ve been up to.

“It’s all absolutely pathetic, but some of it is a right laugh.

“I was blown away by how popular my new tour has been, thank you so much to everyone who has bought tickets.

“It means now I don’t just have to perform in just small dumps but can now do bigger dumps all around the country.”

After making his comedy debut in 2008, Joe has gone on to secure a string of awards, including two Chortle Awards and a nomination for the Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer.

He has become a regular face on TV, including appearances on Would I Lie To You? (BBC One), Room 101 (BBC One), The Royal Variety Performance (ITV) and as guest host of Sunday Brunch (C4).

He is host of BBC Radio 4 series It’s Not What You Know and new forthcoming series Joe Lycett’s Obsessions, and in 2016 released his debut book, Parsnips, Buttered (Hodder & Stoughton), which was recently released in paperback.

I’m About To Lose Control And I Think Joe Lycett is Joe’s third nationwide tour after previous sell-out tours If You Lycett Then You Should Have Put a Ring On It and That’s The Way, A-ha, A-ha, Joe Lycett, the latter of which was released on DVD in late 2016 by Universal Pictures.
