Patrick Kielty's tour is coming to Derby and Nottingham

Leading stand-up comedian Patrick Kielty will be in the area for two dates in October as part of his new UK tour.

He will be at Derby’s Guildhall Theatre on October 10, and then at Nottingham Glee Club on October 22.

His stand-up show is called Help. Join the former psychology graduate and star of BBC 1’s Live at the Apollo, Dave’s One Night Stand and host of Radio 2’s BBC New Comedy Awards as he attempts to write a modern rulebook for love, life and happiness.

Bring him your lovers, your advice and a crayon. Kielty promises to do the rest.

On announcing the tour Patrick said: “I’m really looking forward to getting out there on tour with my new show, Help.

“The fact that the audience gets involved every night means no two shows will be the same.

“Though what help they actually give me remains to be seen! “

Patrick first rose to fame in 1995 after appearing on Comic Relief’s St Patrick’s Day Stand Up Special alongside comic heavy-weights Ben Elton and Jo Brand, having earned a reputation in Ireland for his fearless satirical routines.
