The Laugh Me A Laugh tour begins in Lincoln and when asked about the show, Tommy said: “When I was planning the tour, and the venues I wanted to play, there was only one place that I wanted to begin this new journey, and that was Lincoln.

“Lincoln is a wonderful place. I love Lincoln and it holds very special memories for me as Bobby and I were so lucky to play six panto seasons there during the last decade.

“It is like my second home, and I cannot wait to go back and perform there. It is a beautiful city and the audiences have always been so responsive and warm to us."
