Jack Dee brings his Off The Telly tour to the Engine Shed, Lincoln
Comedian Jack Dee will be performing at Lincoln’s Engine Shed on Saturday and Sunday this week as part of his rescheduled Off The Telly tour.
The grumpy comic last toured a solo stand-up show in 2012, delighting sold out audiences over 18 months.
Speaking about his current tour, Jack, famous for his deadpan style, said: “In these difficult and uncertain times people need hope — a ray of sunshine to brighten their day. And that’s very much where I come in.”
His last foray on the live stage saw Jack bring a new type of live performance to audiences in 2015 with Jack Dee’s Helpdesk.
The show saw Jack and his panel of special guests shed light on an array of the audience’s personal problems, dilemmas and issues in a show where nothing was pre-planned.
Met with critical success, Jack Dee’s Helpdesk was commissioned by BBC Two and included a series on the General Election, the US Presidential Election and the Brexit referendum.
Most recently, Jack starred in two series of ITV sitcom Bad Move, created and co-written alongside fellow Lead Balloon writer Pete Sinclair.
His other TV credits include presenting Channel4’s The Jack Dee Show, ITV’s Jack Dee’s Saturday Night, BBC’s Jack Dee’s Happy Hour and Jack Dee Live at the Apollo.
He also won the first ever series of Celebrity Big Brother.
“I’ve probably appeared in every TV show with my name in the title,” Jack said.
Jack also continues to host the legendary BBC Radio 4 show I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue.
The comedian published a book, What Is Your Problem?, in October this year, which see’s him take life’s biggest dilemmas and answer them with his unique and very professional advice.
Comedy will continue at the Engine Shed throughout December.
On Thursday, December 9, I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here star Joel Dommett will be performing his latest live show, Unapologetic (If That’s Okay?).
Later in the month, Jess Robinson brings the The Twelve Days of Jessmas to the Engine Shed, and Carl Hutchinson and Daniel Sloss will take to the stage in an attempt to rid audiences of their winter blues.
Music fans will not be disappointed either with performances from Paul Weller, The Charlatans, Enter Shikari, The Rills and Live/Wire, an AC/DC tribute show with Live/Wire.
