Critically acclaimed for his characters and performance on BBC2’s Bellamy’s People and the star of Radio Four’s Down The Line, he uses his legal background to stun hecklers into silence with shouts of “objection”.

His TV credits include such landmark shows as The Real McCoy, The Fast Show, Knowing Me Knowing You with Alan Partridge, Have I Got News For You, The Lenny Henry Show and Grumpy Old Men – as he is over 35, he just got in.

The concert begins at 8pm and tickets are £25 and £22.50.
