EVERYONE’S favourite grumbler, Jack Dee, is returning to the stand-up stage this autumn with his first solo tour in six years.

Join Jack for an evening of entertainment as he hits the road with his eagerly awaited brand new UK tour, Off The Telly.

The comedian is bringing the show to the Aylesbury Waterside Theatre in November this year for one night only.

Jack said: “In these difficult and uncertain times people need hope – a ray of sunshine to brighten their day. And that’s very much where I come in.”

Jack last toured a stand-up show in 2012, delighting sold out audiences the length and breadth of the United Kingdom and Ireland over a period of eighteen months.

This was followed by the release of his sixth stand-up DVD for Universal Pictures (UK) - Jack Dee So What? Live.

Star of TV sitcoms Bad Move, Lead Balloon and Josh, Jack Dee also hosts the legendary Radio 4 show I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue.

Additional credits include presenting C4’s The Jack Dee Show, ITV’s Jack Dee’s Saturday Night, BBC’s Jack Dee’s Happy Hour and Jack Dee Live at the Apollo.

“In fact,” explains Jack, “I’ve probably appeared in every TV show with my name in the title”.

Jack returned to the road after a six-year absence from stand-up with an eighteen-month sell-out tour in 2012/2013 which culminated in the release of his sixth DVD, Jack Dee: So What.

His last foray on to the live stage saw him bring a brand new type of live show to audiences in 2015 with Jack Dee’s Helpdesk.

Jack and his panel of special guests helped to shed light on an array of the audience’s personal problems, dilemmas and issues with nothing pre-planned.

Met with critical success, Jack Dee’s Helpdesk was commissioned by BBC Two and included series on the General Election, the US Presidential Election and the Brexit Referendum.

Other sidelines include motivational speaking, which Jack describes as “basically a total waste of time, talking to losers, but the cash is decent” and then adds “Don’t print that”.

It’s so hard to tell when he’s being serious.

Bromley-born Jack, 58, has been delighting audiences since he first appeared on the staf back in 1986 with an open mic gig at The Comedy Store in Soho, London.

Established as one of Britain’s well-loved and biggest comedy stars, Jack Dee has captured the imagination of audiences and critics with his dry humour and deadpan delivery.

Jack Dee - Off the Telly comes to the Aylesbury Waterside Theatre in Exchange Street, Aylesbury, on November 14 at 8pm.

The show is 14+ because of swearing and adult content. Tickets, from £27.15, online now at www.atgtickets.com/aylesbury
