His show, The Joy of Mincing, is live and unplugged, celebrating his 30 years as a camp comedian and looking at the ups and downs of his sordid love life and the true and heart-stopping account of how he saved Dame Joan Collins’ life.

On stage he will proudly wear his well-deserved M.B.E. (Mincer of the British Empire) which he received when he knelt down in front of Prince Charles in the scullery at Buckingham Palace…

A few tickets at £23 remain for the show which begins at 8pm, available from the Arena box office on 01727 844488 or click here.

The comedy continues the following night, Thursday, May 4, when Irish comic Ed Byrne arrives with his new show Outside Looking In from 8pm.
