A famous comedian is the latest big name to bring his show to Cumbria.

Popular TV comic Alan Carr is to appear at The Sands Centre on May 1, 2022.

It’s been four years since Alan last went on tour, and in that time he’s managed to find himself in all sorts of dramas.

Between his star-studded wedding day and becoming an accidental anarchist, from fearing for his life at border control to becoming a reluctant farmer, three words spring to mind… Not again, Alan.

Join Alan on tour as he muses upon the things that make his life weird and wonderful.
