The popular British comedian makes a return to stand-up
Paul Merton is surely one of the UK's most popular comedians, his face familiar to millions across the land.
Perhaps best known for his work on the long-running Have I Got News For You panel show, Merton is also a regular on Radio 4's Just A Minute comedy show, and still appears regularly at London's Comedy Store as part of the Comedy Store Players.
He's also known for his improv work on Channel 4's Whose Line Is It Anyway? in the early 1990s, as well as a slew of other TV and radio shows.
And now, in his first solo show in 12 years, the 55-year-old funnyman is returning to his stand-up roots with a three-week run in a production called Out of my Head at the Vaudeville Theatre in central London.
The blurb on the comic's website invites you to "discover the bizarre workings of Paul Merton's brain, as he muses on the mighty behemoth that is his noggin."
Besides stand-up, Merton will also be performing sketches and songs with Lee Simpson, Richard Vranch and Suki Webster in a night of joke-filled jollity.
At £21 to £36, tickets admittedly don't come cheap, but let's be honest, the man is a comedy legend and one of the nation's top acts.
Once this run's over, who knows when he'll be next back in a show like this. This may be your only chance to catch him, folks.
