DOUBLE British Comedy Award winner Dave Spikey is returning to Middleton Arena as part of his 2021 tour.

The stand up and star of the classic Channel 4 comedy 'Phoenix Nights' will appear at the arena on Thursday, November 4, after his original 2020 tour was postponed because of the pandemic.

Dave was the first comedian to ever appear at Middleton Arena and performed sold-out shows at the venue in 2009, 2011, 2014 and 2017.

His new show - 'A Funny Thing Happened... (I shot Derek Rigby)' will bring a wealth of new anecdotes to Middleton.

Emphasising on the many funny things that happen all the time, Spikey will share his stories from home, at work, out shopping, at the vets, in prison, out with his eccentric gran and in Hong Kong.

A spokesperson for the tour said: "Dave's comedy radar has instinctively drawn him to these small out-of-the-ordinary events that wash over most of us."

Dave's comedy career stretches over 30 years from Phoenix Nights, 8 out of 10 Cats and Bullseye, to Dead Man Weds, Magnolia, The Royal Variety Show, Parkinson and his countless live shows.

In 2015 he starred in a sold out run at Manchester Arena in 'Phoenix Nights Live' which raised more than £5million for Comic Relief.

Dave Spikey - 'A Funny Thing Happened' visits Middleton Arena at 7:30pm on Thursday, November 4. Tickets are £18.50.
