Dylan Moran announces West End run

Six weeks of London dates

Black Books star Dylan Moran has announced a six-week residency in London’s West End.

His tour show What It Is will open at the Apollo Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue, on October 26 and run through until December.

Moran, who became the youngest Perrier-winner in 1996 when he was just 24, was last in the West End five years ago with the show Monster II.

This will be the third stand-up show to come to the 775-seat theatre this year. Rob Brydon started an 18-date run there on Monday and in September, Ross Noble brings his Things show to the venue for another six-week run.

Tickets for What It Is go on sale on Friday.
