Vic and Bob have announced 13 new tour dates for 2016.

The comedy legends will be taking their critically acclaimed live show – 25 Years of Reeves & Mortimer: The Poignant Moments – back on tour starting at Glasgow’s Clyde Auditorium on 29 November.

The tour will then travel to Newcastle, Nottingham, Blackpool, Portsmouth, Plymouth, Cardiff, Birmingham, Bournemouth, Sheffield, Bristol, Manchester and Liverpool.

Tickets for all shows are on sale now via individual venues.

Announcing the new shows, Vic Reeves said: “We had a super marvellous time on tour earlier this year. We had forgotten how much fun it was and got such a great response from our encouragers we decided we had to go out and do it again.”

Bob Mortimer added: “We enjoyed the tour so much that we’ve decided to do it again. We will be energised and plumptious due to a long summer spent wrapped in an oil soaked carpet. Talking of carpets, not only will we be singing about them, but will also be wearing them in protest against the spread of laminate and ceramic flooring. Hope you will be able to come along and join in.”

25 Years of Reeves and Mortimer: The Poignant Moments is a celebration of the first 25 years of their professional collaboration from Vic Reeves Big Night Out (Channel 4 1990) through Smell of Reeves & Mortimer (BBC Two 1993/4), Bang, Bang It’s Reeves & Mortimer (BBC Two 1999), Shooting Stars (BBC Two 1999-2011) and House Of Fools (BBC Two 2014 & 2015).

Previous live shows include Brown 1591 (1991), Puce 1694 (1994) and Weathercock 1495 (1995).

A press release for the tour reads: “This tour is a nostalgic moment in the annals of comedy history and a hotly anticipated ticket for fans hoping to catch a glimpse of some of their most popular characters, Man With the Stick, The Stotts, Mulligan and O’Hare, amongst others.

“As always with Vic and Bob, there will be some uplifting moments, some musical moments, maybe some magic, several dancing styles, some show of physical strength, but always some poignant moments.”
