New York Norton

Graham to perform live in NYC

Graham Norton is to continue his bid for major US stardom with a run of live dates in New York.

The comic recently finished a 13-week run of his chat show The Graham Norton Effect before returning to Britain for his BBC One contract, and the The Bigger Picture, which struggled in the ratings.

Now he is returning to Manhattan for a two-and-a-half week run at The Village Theatre next month, even though he rarely performs live in Britain any more.

The mid-sized Greenwich Village venue has been popular with British comics with the likes of Eddie Izzard, Dave Gorman and Omid Djalili all performing there.

Norton’s show is titled Know All, and promises to ‘uncover the humour behind the headlines’.

Norton has previously performed a one-man show called Red-Handed in New York, prior to making it on TV in the States. It proved popular enough for him to take it on a brief, but sell-out, tour of Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles,

The new show runs from October 4 to 22, with tickets, priced $35 and $40, available from the box office on  (212) 253-2164.
