Comedian ventriloquist Paul Zerdin, winner of America’s Got Talent 2015, is to tour the UK next year with a new show.

Zerdin will take his new show Spongefinger around the UK from 8 April 2016.

The comic, from Wimbledon, London, has previously performed at The Royal Variety Performance, The World Stands Up, Daybreak, The One Show, and Jason Manford’s Comedy Rocks. Zerdin also recently performed a string of shows at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas as part of his America’s Got Talent prize.
