Carr gears up for extra Forum date

The Millennium Forum has just announced that the hugely popular comedian, Alan Carr, has added an extra date to his Derry visit and will now also perform at the cityside venue on Thursday, June 30.

Tickets for the extra show go on sale from the Forum’s Box Office at 9.30am today May 6, priced at £25.50.

‘Chatty Man’ Carr’s gig on Friday, July 1 has already sold out and it is expected that tickets for the extra show will be in huge demand from local comedy fans. Both shows are being billed as special ‘warm-up’ gigs ahead of his forthcoming UK/Ireland arena tour.

David McLaughlin, Millennium Forum Chief Executive, said: “We are delighted to welcome Alan Carr to our venue for his much anticipated return. He performed to sell-out audiences when he visited in 2007 and it’s no surprise that his return visit this year will see him play to full-houses once again.

“Comedy is a strong feature in our brand new May-August season, with some of the best on the current scene gracing our stage including Ed Byrne, Andy Parsons and Tommy Tiernan. I would strongly advise everyone to book their tickets early for this extra show as we expect a high demand for this popular and much-loved comedian.”

Co-star of Channel 4’s ‘Friday Night Project’ and of course, ‘Chatty Man’, ALAN CARR is one of the hottest and brightest comedy talents in the UK. He returns to the road for his first UK tour in over four years.

Come and join Alan as he tries out new material for his forthcoming 33 date UK and Ireland arena tour. A night of camp comedy and belly laughs - book early to avoid disappointment.“
