Lee Nelson has confirmed a date at Middlesbrough Town Hall Crypt later this year.

Nelson will bring his new show, Suited & Booted, to Teesside on Thursday 12 November, with tickets on sale at the Town Hall Box Office and online at 10am tomorrow morning.

The Boro gig will mark a welcome Teesside return for Lee after his previous Town Hall visit in October 2013.

He now joins an ever-growing list of comics including Jimmy Carr (28 March & 9 August), Dara O Briain (14 & 15 April), Alan Carr (19 April, plus 29 & 30 July), Dylan Moran (24 April), Katherine Ryan (16 May), Patrick Monahan (13 June), Kevin Bridges (16 July), Paddy McGuiness (29 September), Alan Davies (30 October), and Dave Gorman (21 November) all heading for the Town Hall this year.

In addition, the popular Big Mouth Comedy Club continues to bring a mix of familiar TV faces and up and coming comics to Boro every month.

Rob Guest, of Middlesbrough Town Hall, said: “Lee just absolutely sizzles up there on that stage – easily one of the best live comics you’ll see this side of anywhere.

“He went down a storm here a couple of couple of years back, so it’s great to have him back here this autumn with a brand new show.

“It just adds to an incredible year ahead for comedy fans here at the Town Hall,” added Rob. “We’ve had a constant string of great comics over the last few years, but this year is shaping up to be our best yet – and there could still be plenty more to come. Watch this space!”
