Dara O’Briain has added an extra tour date at Middlesbrough Town Hall.

Due to high public demand for his new show, Crowd Tickler, O’Briain will now take the stage in Middlesbrough for two nights in April next year. Tickets are now on sale for the Wednesday 15 April and newly added Tuesday 14 April shows.

The host of Mock The Week since 2005, a regular guest on Have I Got News For You and QI, in 2010 O’Briain was voted 16th in Channel 4’s 100 Greatest Stand-Ups. The Irishman has also appeared on Live at the Apollo, and has served as a presenter on the likes of Stargazing Live, School of Hard Sums, and BBC2’s The Apprentice: You’re Fired.

Graham Ramsay, of promoters Ten Feet Tall, who work alongside the Town Hall to deliver the venue’s comedy programme, said: “I was absolutely buzzing when the first date came in, so this extra date is a fantastic early Christmas present as far as I’m concerned. It’s a good few years since we saw Dara round these parts, so it’s great to see him back in Boro, and the second date is just the icing on the cake.

“I’d deffo recommend people buy early for this one – can’t think of too many better things to find in anyone’s Christmas stocking than a ticket to see this fella.”

Dara O Briain: Crowd Tickler at Middlesbrough Town Hall, Tuesday 14 & Wednesday 15 April 2015. Tickets £23, available from Middlesbrough Town Hall Box Office on 01642 729 729 or online.
