Dom Joly heads to Launceston this November
Comedy, theatre and performance is back, Lanson! And we're delighted to be able to tell you about the upcoming show at Launceston Town Hall with comedian Dom Joly, courtesy of Comical Entertainment.
Writer, broadcaster and comedian Dom Joly, best known as the creator of Trigger Happy TV, is back on the road with his one-man theatre tour, giving fans a rare opportunity to see him live.
Dom will be talking about his exploits as a serial globe-trotting and seeker of dangerous travel spots when he returns to the road to complete his ‘Dom Joly’s Holiday Snaps’ tour.
He’s playing more than 20 dates this autumn, from September 18 to November 14.
From North Korea to Chernobyl, Dom has visited some of the most unusual places on the planet – including, of course, the Australian bush in the 10th series of hit TV show I’m A Celebrity . . . Get Me Out of Here. Armed with a trusty Powerpoint, fans can expect his holiday snaps to serve up a tantalising mix of comedy and a sense of danger.
The best-selling author will meet fans after the show to sign copies of his latest book, The Hezbollah Hiking Club.
Dom says: “I’ve got this collection of weird holiday snaps. And I know there’s that cliché that ‘nobody wants to see anybody else’s holiday snaps’. Well, my holiday snaps are really good. And I’ve got some really good stories with them.
“The theme is travel. The three things I’ll be showing will be my own holiday snaps, holiday snaps from TV shows and holiday snaps from my books.
“So, for instance, when we did Trigger Happy TV, we went to Switzerland and found out our runner couldn’t ski and then I got arrested for impersonating a yeti.
“Then there was stuff from World Shut Your Mouth, which had me the frightening the eskimo with cymbals. There’s another snap of me at Chernobyl, thinking: ‘Should I eat the vegetables here or not?’ So when I put all of them together, I’ve got a seriously great holiday show.
“We were mid-way through the tour when Covid brought everything to a standstill, so I’m delighted that I’m finally able to get back on the road.”
Dom Joly will be at Launceston Town Hall on November 11th. For details on how to book, go to https://www.comicalentertainment.com/book-tickets
