Popular English stand-up comedian, Peter Kay, is bringing his new tour to the North of Ireland in 2019.

Kay will appear on stage in the SSE Arena, Belfast on January 13 and 14, 2019.

The 44 year-old entertainer will also be performing at the 3Arena in Dublin on February 1 and 2, 2019.

The new tour, which is called 'Peter Kay Live', will be the comedian's first tour in eight years.

Kay said the reason he was getting back on the road was because he missed doing stand-up comedy.

"I really miss it," said Kay. "I know how lucky I am to be making television series and have really loved these past few years working on Car Share but I miss doing stand-up.

"As terrifying as it is, when it works there's nothing more fun and exciting. Plus, a lot has happened in the last eight years, with Trump, Twitter and my Nan getting her front bush trimmed at the age of 96. I can't wait to get back up on stage."

Tickets for the tour go on-sale: Sunday November 19 at 10am.
