The All-Star Stand-Up Tour is coming to Dartford and Bromley - with three comedians and returning Chortle Award-winning compere Jarred Christmas delivering two hours of the very best comedy.
Producers have announced a last-minute change of line-up due to comedian Jim Tavaré being involved in a near fatal car crash near his home city of Los Angeles on March 6.
Jim is on the mend having spend 15 days in intensive care, suffering severe injuries caused by multiple broken bones and two collapsed lungs.
Plans are being put in place for him to appear on the 2018 All-Star Stand-Up tour instead.
Jim said: “My hand ligaments completely detached from my wrist. The surgeons that put it back together say that I won’t ever be able to play the bass sgain, but I am determined to prove them wrong. I look forward to seeing you all for the 2018 tour.”
He has been replaced by Mike Gunn, who is well-known from appearing on BBC1’s Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, and having supported Lee Mack on tour.
Mike said: “I can’t wait to get on the road with the rest of the team, and it just proves that every cloud really has a silver lining,”
The All-Star Stand-Up Tour also features Stewart Francis, and Justin Moorhous.
Stewart has headlined all over North America and the UK.
He has appeared on Mock The Week, Live At The Apollo, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow and 8 Out Of 10 Cats. He was also the support act for Ricky Gervais on his Science tour.
In 2010 Stewart appeared in a special Children in Need episode of Mastermind where his specialist subject was the Toronto Maple Leafs, and in 2012 he won the annual award for the funniest joke of the Edinburgh Fringe.
Justin has written his own BBC Radio 4 sitcom and appeared on Live At The Apollo.
In 2012 he won Celebrity Mastermind on BBC One - his chosen subject was comedy legend Les Dawson. He also starred in Phoenix Nights, alongside Peter Kay and performed with him during the Phoenix Nights Live run at Manchester Arena.
The show’s compare, Jarred, has appeared on shows such as Mock The Week, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, 8 out of 10 Cats and Argumental.
As a stand- up he has appeared on The Comedy Store, Edinburgh and Beyond, Comedy Blue and The World Stands-Up (Comedy Central), as well as One Night Stand (Dave) and Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC Three).
Producer of the show, Alex Jarrett said: “We’re very excited to be taking The All-Star Stand-Up Tour back on the road. We had a great run last year with the show taking on a real ensemble feel – there are not many stand-up shows that see four performers all on stage together riffing and improvising.
“We can’t wait to see what unfolds this year, and if nothing else, buy stocks in Nandos now because their value will soar if consumption on the 2016 run is anything to go by.”
The stand-up show will be at Bromley’s Churchill Theatre on May 26, and Dartford’s Orchard Theatre on June 15.
