CHATTY comedian Alan Carr returns to the North of Scotland and to his stand-up roots next year with gigs at Eden Court Theatre in Inverness and His Majesty’s Theatre in Aberdeen.
Inverness has the first chance to see his Yap, Yap, Yap tour shows with two Eden Court dates on Thursday 26th and Friday 27th February.
Aberdeen follows almost six months later with HMT's dats on Friday 14th and Saturday 15th August.
Tickets for both north shows are on sale now.
“We are delighted to be able to welcome Alan Carr to Aberdeen, particular at His Majesty’s Theatre which is such an intimate venue and will give fans the chance to get up-close-and-personal with the comedy star,” said Aberdeen Performing Arts press manager Joyce Summers.
“We fully expect the 3000 tickets for the two August nights to fly out the door on Friday and will be drafting in additional Box Office staff to cope with the demand but we would ask people to be patient while they are so busy.”
Since winning the BBC New Comedy Award for Stand-up as well as CityLife Best Newcomer of the Year in 2001, Alan Carr has become one of the best known comedy stars in Britain.
The success of the first series of his own chat show, Alan Carr: Chatty Man, in the summer of 2009, led to Channel 4 commissioning several further series' as well as Christmas Specials and his summer and New Year Specstaculars.
The chat show won the 2013 BAFTA for Best Entertainment Performance and 2013 British Comedy Award for Best Comedy Entertainment Personality, and in previous years a clutch of awards from the 2012 National Television Award for Best Talk Show.
Carr has also collected the 2012 Loaded LAFTA Award for Best Stand Up and the 2010 TV Choice Awards for Best Entertainment Show.
There were also nominations for Best New British Comedy & Best Comedy Entertainment Personality at the 2009 British Comedy Awards.
He has performed for her Majesty The Queen at the Royal Variety Performance.
