HIGHLY acclaimed British comedian Jon Richardson will perform in Shetland next year.
The funnyman – who is best known for featuring on a range of TV shows including 8 Out of 10 Cats – will appear at the Clickimin bowls hall in Lerwick on 28 April.
Richardson will bring his Old Man show to the isles as part of a wider UK tour and it will see him “complain about the state of the world – and offer no solutions”.
Its blurb says “since his last show he has become a husband and father, seen the UK vote to leave the EU and watched the rise of Donald Trump, all of which leaves him asking one question, why does it seem that no one else alive can correctly load a dishwasher?”
The Times has called Richardson “one of our most individual and interesting stand-ups”, while The Mirror says for “10 years he has been among the funniest men in Britain”.
He will be the latest big name comedian to visit Shetland, with the likes of Ross Noble, Dylan Moran, Russell Kane and Phill Jupitus all performing in the isles in the last few years.
Tickets for Jon Richardson’s Lerwick show will go on sale from 10am on Friday (29 September) from www.beyondpresents.co.uk, www.ticketmaster.co.uk, www.seetickets.com and in person from High Level Music in Lerwick.
