Irish comedian Dylan Moran brings his new stand-up show, Off The Hook, to the Alban Arena on two evenings next week.

The star of Black Books, Shaun of the Dead, Run Fatboy Run and Calvary, is back on the road with a show which aims to tackle the never-ending surge of new technology head-on and consider the effects this imposed connectivity is having on our minds and souls.

As well as becoming a household name through his roles on TV and in films, Dylan’s stand up career is prolific. He has won several awards including a coveted Perrier, and has a number of stand-up DVDs out.

He is appearing at 8pm next Wednesday and Thursday, May 20 and 21, and tickets at £25 are available from the Arena box office on 01727 844488 or go to

The Voca People are appearing at 7pm and tickets are £22, £20 or £70 for a family ticket.
