Lee Hurst, one of Britain’s most-loved comedians, and one of the sexiest men of 1999, is back at the Brindley Theatre with an all-new show on Thursday 23 February. The audience turn up. Everyone laughs. Everyone goes home happy.
Having earned his stripes over twenty years ago as a circuit comic and one of the best telly warm-up men in the business, Lee was quickly promoted to being a regular face on comedy panel shows including They Think It’s All Over and Have I Got News For You, which is how he became a household name.
Currently, West Ham fan Lee enjoys performing live to audiences all over the country, and has a reputation for being a master of his craft, who can artfully control any crowd.
His combined quick wit, sharp observation and easy manner make an evening in Lee’s company a fun night out, which is why Lee’s fans are a dedicated bunch.
This tour will be Lee’s ninth full-length comedy show. It is a show jam-packed with laughs. So it is simply called ‘Comedy Show No. 9.’ Lee’s style of comedy is funny stories, quality gags and side-splitting observations.
There are no gimmicks. There is no over-arching narrative journey or message. This is one man, a mic and his mind. The show is simple. The content is hilarious.
In 1999, Hurst was voted no. 48 in Company magazine’s “100 Millennium Men” – tagged as a list of ‘The Sexiest Men of the Century’.
